Birthday baby delight for Stacey Solomon Posted On 08 October 2021

Instagram goes wild after TV star’s home birth

 

For TV star Stacey Solomon, a new baby daughter was the ultimate birthday present. However, her delighted fiance, the wise-cracking former EastEnders actor Joe Swash, took a different point of view, laughing: “It’s going to be an expensive day!”

Born at the couple’s Essex home, Pickle Cottage, this special delivery arrived on Stacey’s 32nd birthday on Tuesday and immediately became a social media star.

Having been particularly quiet on various platforms during the day after sharing a picture of her eating birthday cake in bed, Stacey – the Loose Women and X Factor star – teased her 4.7million Instagram followers with a picture hinting at the birth of a little girl.

Hours later there was more concrete proof, with another snap of the newborn in which she was surrounded by the hands of her parents and brothers, and that had more than 1.8m likes and 80,000 comments within a few hours.

However, it took a response from delighted grandad David to give a massive hint towards a name, as the couple initially avoided the issue. Having posted a picture of his happy daughter, he took a particular liking to one of the comments: “Beautiful baby, congratulations. Would be fun if she was Lily… Pickle-Lily.. lol”.

The day after giving birth, Stacey was back on Instagram, posting a video of her with her daughter wrapped in a white blanket. She said: “I love her so much, she’s amazing. The boys are amazing. I’m just so happy. Your messages are lovely too. Every time I’m feeding her, I sit and read them and they’re the loveliest comfort ever, so thank you.”

The happy parents, who announced their engagement last Christmas, already have a son, Rex, while Stacey has two children, Zachary and Leighton, from previous relationships and Joe has another son.
