However when asked about making future plans, Stacey said she feels her boyfriend Joe’s paternity leave is considered unimportant, as she made the point that ‘nobody cares’ whether he will be taking time off following the birth.

The TV star said: ‘It is weird because no one ever asks Joe if he’s going take time off, but I always get asked when am I going to stop working or when are you going to go back – but no one ever asks Joe that question.’

She continued by saying that it causes her to start questioning whether she should be putting plans into motion, adding: ‘Joe doesn’t even think about it because nobody really cares or thinks it’s relevant.

‘There’s a lot of pressure on women as to when are you going to do this and that, but the reality is Joe and I are having a baby together and it’s going to impact both of our lives in the same way, but he will never be under those pressures.’ 

On the topic of work, Stacey continued by saying that a large part of her not making plans is because she is passionate about work doesn’t want to miss out on ‘opportunities that might not be there forever’.

However despite feeling ‘lucky’ to be in the career she has, Stacey said that she still feels like she wants to spend as much time as possible with her young children and feels a sense of ‘guilt’ when she has to work.

She confessed: ‘Trust me I want to be around my kids all day every day so it comes with a nice big burden of guilt, but at the same time I love what I do and that they see that I love what I do.

Stacey, who is already mum to Zachary, 11, and Leighton, six, said that the boys are ‘over the moon’ to be welcoming another sibling, however she admitted that sometimes she does worry about how they will adjust.  

She said: ‘They’re excited, it’s weird to know that there’s going to be a whole new dynamic so some days I’m like this is so exciting and amazing, but other times I’m like will they be okay will they adjust?’ 

The TV star said: 'It is weird because no one ever asks Joe if he’s going take time off, but I always get asked when am I going to stop working or when are you going to go back – but no one ever asks Joe that question.'

‘But I know they will, and they are such lovely boys and they’re going to be great big brothers and I can’t wait for the new addition to our family.’

The former X Factor star said that Zach, Leighton and Joe’s son Harry, 11, were the first people her and Joe told about the pregnancy news as they are ‘the most important’ people in their lives.

One thing Stacey has noticed during her pregnancy is the fluctuating condition of her skin, which she said she puts down to her shifting hormones and slight change in diet.

Stacey, who is a YourGoodSkin ambassador, said that she tries to stick to her usual skincare regime which involves cleansing her face with a daily hot cloth cleanser, as well as toning and moisturising.

The Dagenham native, who has been using the brand for a couple of years, said that she learnt to look after she skin after it went through a change in her twenties and she developed acne.

Stacey’s skin problems first arose a few years after the birth of her first son Zach, she said: ‘I didn’t get it as a teenager luckily but I realised I wasn’t looking after my skin properly. I just thought I didn’t need to because I’ve never had a problem, so from that point I’ve actually started doing stuff.’ 

Following Zach’s birth Stacey had postnatal depression, which she has previously spoken candidly about during discussions about mental health.

Since then, Stacey revealed that she has made sure to regularly check in with her mental health, as she strongly advocates that it is just important as physical health.   

She said: ‘I definitely think that I want to and try to make a conscious effort about my mental health, even if I feel like I’m absolutely fine I think it’s important to check in and make sure.

‘I really struggled after I had Zach with my mental health and it made a significant impact on my life and Zachary’s life and the way that I dealt with the whole scenario… 

‘So realising that there are certain tools and people you can speak to and it’s definitely better off being open and getting as much help as you possibly can.’
