British singer and television personality, Stacey Solomon, has shared the unexpected pregnancy symptom she has been experiencing…

British singer and Loose Women panellist, Stacey Solomon, has been incredibly candid about her pregnancy. The TV personality is expecting her first child with partner, Joe Swash, a sibling for her two boys from previous relationships, but says that she has been experiencing some unusual symptoms this time around…

Keeping It Real

Sharing a photo to Instagram, Stacey admitted that she has noticed some unexpected changes in the later stages of her pregnancy. “I think I’m pregnant with a Furby!” she wrote. “Did anyone else’s belly just suddenly become covered in fur?” Stacey’s picture showed her rapidly growing bump with a sprinkle of dark hair growing across it. “I’ve now started sprouting some lovely thick, wirey black ones around my belly button!” she admitted. “I’m not upset by it one bit…I’m just so fascinated as to why this happens?” Stacey went on to say that she had always been a hairier than average person but has recently noticed a significant increase of hair in odd places.

All Part Of The Experience

Comments on Stacey’s post highlighted that the symptom is quite common in pregnancy. “I got these when I was pregnant,” one follower wrote. “I was having a little boy and the midwife said it was an old wives tale that said if you get a hairy belly it’s the extra testosterone in your body lol!” “Yes! I was massively hairy with my second baby!” wrote another. “I even developed one thick black strand from under my chin. Midwife said don’t pluck them as they will fall out after the baby arrives.”

We really admire Stacey for being so honest throughout her pregnancy – we’re sure many women know exactly what she is talking about! Pregnancy isn’t always glamorous but it definitely helps to know you’re not alone.

Did you have a ‘hairy’ pregnancy? Share your story in the comments.

  • I didn’t have a ‘hairy’ thing happening, but pregnancy does weird and (not so) wonderful things to your body. My knees have not been the same since, nor my lower back, i swear my rib cage has expanded and my feet have grown.


  • No, not a side effect of any of my pregnancies. I think I would have removed it somehow


  • Yeah weird. I never had any excess hair but everyone’s pregnancy is so different


  • It’s amazing how’s many things happen through and after pregnancy that no one really talks about! I never actually got that on my tummy


  • I didn’t know this could happen, but I guess anything is possible when it comes to hormones.


  • I was hairy than that prior to pregnancy so afterwards I have an expensive salon bill. The joys that no one talks about at mothers group


  • It didn’t happen to me but isn’t that interesting!


  • wow who knew that this was a possible thing to happen whilst pregnant. I love it when celebrities share their personal stories like this – not only does it make their fans love them even more but it is also helpful to others who might be having the same thing happen to them!


  • Nothing changed for me, but I think it’s great that she is willing to be so open and honest, as I think it will help other women who experience this and feel that they are abnormal or alone in this, and they will see that it’s in fact very normal


  • No extra hair for my during any of my pregnancies


  • I’ve heard of this but not experienced it.


  • It’s meant to be quite common. A quick pluck will get rid of those…lol..


  • Oh, I didn’t know it could happen. No hairy pregnancy for me.


  • Hairy – pregnant or not is fine.


  • hormones can be a pain!
