The Loose Women panellist, 31, declared her love for her three children on the ITV programme on Monday, but admitted she 'doesn't love being pregnant'.

Stacey 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 those people who would give anything to be pregnant. 

'It feels like something has taken over my body, I don’t have control any more and everyone is looking at me. The teenage mum looks were like...' Stacey said as she gave a concerned expression. 

She added: 'I just remember feeling so ashamed, I know that sounds awful but when I was pregnant with Zach, all I  felt the whole way through was shame. I looked like a baby as well, I looked about six!

She confessed that she visited an abortion clinic after she conceived her first child, but clarified her parents never pressured her to make a decision.   

Stacey reflected: 'I always remember my parents wouldn't give me any input whatsoever.

'Even though they were really upset with me, and hurt and disappointed, they never told me whether I should go ahead and have the baby or not have the baby.
