"At this point we are struggling to say the least to be good parents, and try and work and do everything else in between. So no not right now."
However the presenter did suggest that she would be open to fostering in the future.
"Joe's mum fosters, and I would love to one day foster as well when we are older and all the kids are grown up and moved out, that would be our dream," Stacey said.
The couple have six children between them.
Stacey welcomed her first son, 15-year-old Zachary, when she was 17 with her childhood sweetheart Dean Cox. Four years later, Stacey gave birth to 11-year-old Leighton with her ex-fiancé Aaron Barnham.
In February 2023, Stacey and Joe extended their family further with baby number three, who they named Belle.
Joe Swash is also father to Harry, 16, from a previous relationship.
