Stacey Solomon gives birth to baby girl and says it’s ‘the best birthday present’

Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have welcomed their first daughter – on Stacey’s 32nd birthday.

The Loose Women star took to Instagram on Tuesday evening to share the happy news and post the first snaps of the new baby, who was born at the couple’s home Pickle Cottage.

The new arrival is the youngest sister of Stacey and Joe’s two-year-old son Rex and Stacey’s boys Leighton, nine, and Zacheray, 13, and Joe’s son Harry, 14, the Mirror reports.

Stacey wrote on Instagram: “She’s Here – Born at Pickle Cottage on mummy’s birthday. Our little girl… Happy birthday my darling daughter… We all love you more than you could ever imagine.

“Your brothers, your daddy and I are so in love. Thank you for the most incredible 9 months. Now we cannot wait for the rest of our lives with you…”

Stacey and Joe announced her pregnancy in June, with the mum-to-be sharing: “We are growing another pickle. We’ve never felt so grateful… I have no words.

“We didn’t think we would get the chance. We love you all to the moon and back.

“Lots of love From Me, Joe, Harry, Zach, Leighton, Rex, and our little pickle.”

A few weeks later, Stacey confirmed she was having a baby girl.

“Baby Girl, I can not believe I’m writing this…We are growing a little baby girl,” she told fans.

“To our darling boys, you are the best big brothers anyone could wish for and your little sister is the luckiest girl in the world to have you all by her side. I honestly have no words…

Stacey and Joe have had a whirlwind year after moving into ‘Pickle Cottage’ and have also been planning their upcoming wedding after getting engaged last Christmas.

They were planning to tie the knot this summer but were forced to postpone the date after Stacey discovered she was pregnant.
