Stacey Solomon has admitted she is “not bothered” about getting married to her partner, Joe Swash.

The Loose Women presenter and her boyfriend, Joe Swash, welcomed their first child together on May 23.

And while the 30-year-old said she isn’t bothered about saying ‘I do’, she said she does want him to pop the question one day.

She told new magazine [via The Sun]:

“I want an engagement ring, but I’m not bothered about getting married.Neither of us are!

“I have those weird preset ideas that I should get married and have a big white dress but it’s not the be all and end all.

“We have our family, we’re together, we’re practically married in our opinion.

“That piece of paper for us isn’t something we feel we need right now.”

The couple first announced they were expecting back in February this year.

He added:
