Screen beauty Shana – the younger sister of Stacey’s husband Joe Swash - announced this summer that she and her fiancé Nick Jones were starting a family together, writing on Instagram: “PENDING.... BABY JONES 5TH DECEMBER 2023.”
With her due date now just around the corner, she celebrated with a gorgeous bash filled with flowers, balloons and her famous relatives. Pictures shared on social media showed Shana glowing with happiness as she celebrated her impending mummyhood.
The actress - who is best known for playing Albert Square’s Demi Miller from 2004 to 2006 – looked stunning in a long white dress. She wore her dark hair swept off her face in an elegant up do, with a few loose tendrils framing her face.
Stacey, who has five children of her own, shared a snap on Instagram of Shana posing with Joe at the shower. They were joined by Joe and Shana’s other sister Caisie for the family snap, and TV star Stacey had added a sweet heart emoji.
Shana and Loose Women star Stacey are close, and Shana was one of Stacey and Joe’s bridesmaids when they tied the knot last year. The TV star wed Joe - who also rose to fame in EastEnders as Mickey Miller – in a stunning ceremony at their home, Pickle Cottage.
Stacey later told how important the people in the wedding party were to her as she reminisced about her big day. Sharing a picture of her bridesmaids, she told her fans: “Every time we get a group of pictures back it just makes us relieve the whole day and it's the best feeling ever.
"I love these women more than they'll ever know. Our sisters. our best friends."
"So grateful to have them all in our lives," she added.
