The celeb couple shared the news on social media earlier this week, and fans flocked to compliment the adorable moniker.
But what inspired their newborn's title? Well, Stacey's co-star Ruth Langsford has revealed all on Loose Women.
Speaking on Wednesday's episode of the ITV show, Ruth begun with an announcement of Stacey and Joe's new arrival.
"Stacey and Joe shared the name of their week-old baby girl," Ruth explained. "She is called Rose Opal Esmè Solomon-Swash, they call her their precious jewel.
"Her middle name Opal has got special significance actually for Stacey and Joe.
"Opal is Stacey's birth stone and Rose was actually born on Stacey's birthday, so that's now her birthday which is lovely, and then Stacey's engagement ring has got two Australian opals because that's where she and Joe met on I'm A Celebrity."
The 32-year-old X Factor alum shared the happy news of her daughter's arrival on Instagram on Tuesday night, writing: "Sooooo, to my family on here, yesterday I got the best birthday present I could have ever wished for."
She told fans that after having mild contractions, she had decided to head to the hospital, but came home because they weren't too painful.
"I woke up feeling a little twingey so I went to check in on her. She seemed happy as larry and the contractions weren't too strong so I went home," said Stacey.
"But she decided she was ready to meet us... immediately... so our community midwives came straight over with all of the gas and air.
"And then... she was in our arms in real life."
Joe also spoke out about the birth of his little one, writing: "My darling girls, I love you more than you'll ever know. October 4th is going to be an expensive day for daddy xxxx."
Ah, so sweet! We're so happy for Stacey, Joe, and the rest of the family.
