They've had a busy year moving to their dream house, planning a wedding and are about to have their second baby together. But Joe Swash hasn't forgotten to appreciate his relationship with wife to be Stacey Solomon.
In a recent interview, Joe opened up about the moment he knew Stacey was the one for him.
The pair first met each other after Stacey, now 31, took the jungle crown in the 2010 version of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
Joe, who had won the show two years prior, was Down Under working on the ITV programme and despite the fact bubbly Stacey was in a relationship when they were introduced, he "couldn't help" but fancy her.
The former Eastenders star explained that when Stacey returned the following year for a guest spot on the spin off show – I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Now! – sparks really flew between them.
Joe explained to the Mirror: "I met Stacey for the first time when we were doing the spin-off show for, I’m A Celebrity.
“Stacey had come out as a guest for a week and I suppose we had like a week-long date.
“We just spent all our time together, like every single spare second we had we were around one another. So, when she went home, we both realised very quickly how much we missed each other."
Joe, who shares Rex, two, with future wife Stacey, said: “I met her in Australia seven, nearly eight years ago and sparks just flew to be honest. We got one so well and we believed in the same things and wanted the same things in life.

“We both found each other funny and here we are now. We both have a lot to thank I’m A Celebrity for when I think about it.
Joe concluded: "She was the one."
The pair got engaged over Christmas and are preparing to welcome their second child together – a little girl.
Stacey – who shared a bare bump pic earlier this week – is already mum to Leighton, nine, and Zachary, 13, while Joe has son Harry from a previous relationship.
