Stacey Solomon’s due date revealed as Towie pal organises baby shower

STACEY Solomon’s due date sooner than we expected

The 29-year-old is expecting her first child with boyfriend Joe Swash, 37, with the couple announcing the happy news in February.

But now it has been revealed by pal Denise Van Outen that the Loose Women star has a little over a month to go before her baby arrives.

Attending a pregnancy party hosted by former Towie star Lydia, 29, Denise posed for a picture with her and mum-to-be Stacey.

As the three women grinned for a snap, with Lydia and Denise placing their hands on Stacey’s bump, the 44-year-old wrote alongside it on Instagram: “Only 5 weeks to go. Baby shower hosted by @lydiabright for @staceysolomon & friends #babyshower #essex.”

Stacey then shared a short clip from the party, telling her followers: “Lydia has done a pregnancy party.”

Appearing over her shoulder, Lydia added: “Pregnancy party because all my friends are pregnant!”

In fact, Lydia had five other friends at the bash, which featured an elaborate floral and balloon display above a table covered in food

As well salad, cold meats, cheeses and crudites, there were plenty of cakes, bread and crisps to feed the guests, as well as a platter of baby themed cupcakes.

Stacey – who also has sons Zachary and Leighton from previous relationships – wore pastel colours for the party in a lilac skirt and striped jumper.

Meanwhile Denise wore mustard yellow trousers and a black top and Lydia opted for a summery yellow and turquoise floral dress.

Earlier this month, Stacey shared a close-up shot of her hairy baby bump, telling fans: “I think I’m pregnant with a Furby.”

Posted the pic, she asked: “Did anyone else’s belly just suddenly become covered in fur?

Im not sure if you can see it but all of the grainy little lines are blonde hairs that I’ve never had before.

“Now I’ve now started sprouting some lovely thick, wirey black ones around my belly button.

“I’ve always had my hair tummy snail trail which is a line of hair that practically goes from my cleavage all the way done to my hoo-ha but never an all over fuzz.”

“I’m not upset by it one bit I’ve always loved my, furrier than most, body, I’m just so fascinated as to why this happens? What does it mean? Is it to keep the Furby warm?”
