"We are growing another pickle," she wrote beside a photo of herself, fiance Joe Swash and family. "We've never felt so grateful... I have no words.

"We didn’t think we would get the chance. We love you all to the moon and back. Lots of love From Me, Joe, Harry, Zach, Leighton, Rex, and our little pickle".

She added she had been trying for another baby "for a really long time".

"We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys," she wrote.

"It is our biggest privilege in life and we are so grateful to be parents so we stopped trying and counted ourselves so, so, so blessed already."

She also added that after going for a check-up they were "so grateful to hear an extra heartbeat".

Solomon and Swash, who is best known for playing Mickey Miller in EastEnders, have a son named Rex together.

Solomon also has two children from previous relationships, while Swash has another son.

In April Solomon said her wedding to Swash is on pause while they try to get a licence to get married in the back garden of their home in Essex.
