The former X Factor star has teased a huge family announcement

Stacey Solomon has teased a huge family announcement and it would appear she is planning to expand her family of seven.

Mother-of-five Solomon, who rose to fame after making it to the X Factor final in 2009, has expressed interest in the past about fostering and told fans she had met some "special little ones".

She told fans she and husband Joe Swash would make a proper announcement over the weekend.

With the couple celebrating son Rex's fifth birthday, the 34-year-old reportedly took to social media to share a photo of her morning coffee as she enjoyed the views of her Essex home OK! reports.

She penned: "Rexy woke up at the crack of dawn super excited. Me and Joe took him to school and did the other school runs and then went off to meet some very special little ones... which I'll tell you all about tomorrow.

"But it's something we've talked about and thought about for a long time and finally it all came together. But today is Rexy's day."

The couple have talked about fostering before, with Swash's mum Kiffy having worked as a foster parent herself.

Speaking previously to The Daily Mirror, Swash revealed: "It would definitely be of interest to both Stacey and I."

He continued: "As we have seen the difference my mum has made to little Daniel's life and the young man he is growing up to be and it truly scares us to think what could've happened if my mum had never met him; and the difference it would've made to his life."

The Daily Record reports Swash, 42, first mentioned fostering on the Netmums Podcast last year, stating: "Fostering is something that me and Stacey have talked about and would love to do."

He continued: "We'd love to foster, we'd love to give something back, you know?

"It is something that we definitely want to do, when our kids get old enough that they're not as reliant on us."

Solomon also shared a sweet post to her main Instagram feed of a grinning Rex sitting between herself and Swash.

She penned in the caption: "Happy Birthday Rexy. Five whole years of loving you.

"Where on earth has that gone darling boy? Feels like yesterday you were born & our lives changed forever in the bestest way.

"You are the kindest, most caring little pickle and you bring us so much joy every single day. To the moon and back Rexy."
