London, Mar 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Television personality Stacey Solomon may be seven months pregnant but that has not stopped her from smoking. The mother-of-one was caught smoking and that has greatly embarrassed her.

She was quoted in a Sunday newspaper in the United Kingdom as saying that, “I know it doesn’t look good but I only have a few cigs a day.”

She denied the suggestion that she has let her fans down with her behavior. The People quoted her as saying that, “I don’t think I’ve let down my fans, But I do get a little stressed at times and a ciggie helps me calm down…I desperately want to stop ­smoking and I don’t want to set a bad example.”

Her publicist also claimed that Stacey is trying to quit the habit. The publicist however revealed that Stacey lights up one or two sticks a day. Stacey is pregnant with fiancé Aaron Barham. She is already a mother to four-year-old Zachary.

Stacey has revealed that she is embarrassed by the action and that may be the motivation to get her to stop the habit.

Several studies have suggested that smoking during pregnancy can affect the fetus. Doctors say some birth defects and conditions can be attributed to mothers who smoke during pregnancy.
