Stacey Solomon has revealed that she felt "ashamed" while being pregnant at 17 with her eldest son Zachary.

The mum-of-three, who admitted she's never been so nervous as she unveiled new book recently, spoke to her fellow Loose Women co-stars about pregnancy guilt on Monday's episode.

The 31 year old said: "I adore my children, I loved giving birth and having babies. I would love to do it again.

"I don't love being pregnant and I really hate saying that. It's not because I'm ungrateful. I think about all of those people who would give anything to be pregnant.

"It feels like something has taken over my body. I don't have any control any more and everyone is looking at me," she explained.

Nadia Sawalha then interjected and asked Stacey if the staring was worse when she was pregnant at 17.

She responded: "The teenage mum looks were like…" before making a face.

"I just remember feeling so ashamed. I know that sounds awful but when I was pregnant with Zach, what I felt the whole way through was shame.

"I looked like a baby as well. I looked about six," Stacey expressed.

"I think people just looked and were like, 'ugh, why is she pregnant?' Maybe it's a bit of a trauma I just haven't addressed."

The former X Factor star is mum to sons Zachary, 12, Leighton, eight, and one year old Rex who she shares with her husband-to-be Joe Swash.

Stacey recently opened up about the couple having more kids one day.

"But for now, with everything going on we are just trying our best to keep our head above the water with our boys."

Joe, 38, asked Stacey to marry him on Christmas Eve and the pair are now engaged to marry.
