Fans of Loose Woman panellist Stacey Soloman were convinced she may have already given birth following an update on Instagram.

The 31-year-old is currently expecting her fourth child and is thought to be just weeks away from her due date.

Stacey posed in the mirror of her newly revamped Pickle Cottage dressing room wearing a billowing nude shirt and matching trousers.

But the former X Factor finalist was soon inundated with messages from her fan base who guessed that she was back at home after having her baby girl.

One fan of the star stressed she “doesn’t look pregnant”, but Stacey was quick to deal with the rumours head-on, The Mirror reports.

Stacey wrote: "Going to take the boys for a long walk today, cook a roast and may even treat myself to a little craft half hour if I get the chance.

"I have a long day tomorrow so making the most of this Sunday feeling"

But she promptly followed her post with another aimed to clear up any confusion for fans who were convinced she might have already given birth.

She said: "I promise I haven't secretly had the baby and just casually come on here like nothing happened.

"I'll let you know when I go into labour. It's just this top. A few more weeks left hopefully."

She then lifted up her shirt to show off her bump to show her followers she was still waiting for baby number four.

The former X Factor and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! star admitted in an interview that she had been scared about telling people she was pregnant again.

She has three children with three different dads, including current fiancé Joe Swash.

The pair, who got engaged last year, have a two-year-old son called Rex, and Stacey shares sons Leighton, 9, and Zachary, 13, with previous partners.

She is also step-mum to Joe’s son Harry, 13, from a previous relationship.

She said on Instagram: "I don't think having it [being pregnant] out there was ever a worry, but I was in denial.

"You never know, it might not happen, it might not happen.

"We wanted to wait until a point when if it was happening, it was actually happening hopefully.

"Sometimes it's nice to share everything so everyone is involved in the experience, whether it's good or bad.

"Sometimes it's nice to just fester in a cave and stay safe and stay in.

"I'm so excited, honestly."
