Sharing a similar snap to Stacey, Kevin wrote: "We’re having a baby!

Stacey often documented her pregnancy, sharing a number of beautiful bump snaps to her 1.1million followers on Instagram.
Just weeks before the baby was born, Stacey shared a snap in comfortable trousers and a matching crop top with a blue bag crossing her body.
She captioned the snap: "My penultimate day of work before the baby comes.
"I haven't got a steriliser yet, but I have got this completely impractical bag for expectant mothers so DON'T WORRY, (I'm gonna be great at this clearly)," as she added plenty of laughing emojis.
