Huge congratulations to Stacey and Joe!

Huge congratulations to Stacey Solomon, who has welcomed her fifth child.

Stacey, 33, and husband Joe Swash announced the happy news on social media, telling followers that their baby girl has arrived.

Stacey shared the news after writing on Instagram that she 'wasn't quite prepared for the crazy quick whirlwind' that took place after she snapped a picture of her baby bump on 7 February, before teasing fans by writing: "I'm so so excited to share with you that..."

The mum then uploaded a picture of the newborn to her Instagram feed, confirming 'She’s Here'.

Stacey and Joe surprised fans with the news of their new arrival.

"Our beautiful, daughter born at home with all of your brothers and sister ready to snuggle you forever and ever," Stacey wrote. "You literally flew into our world… And none of us can quite believe your thick dark head of hair that we just can’t get over. We can’t believe your [sic] here. Welcome to the world beautiful girl, thank you for the last few months in my tummy, we can’t wait to love you forever and ever we are so grateful we get to be your family."

Stacey teased the arrival of her newborn for fans.

In December, Stacey shocked fans by revealing her fifth child was due much sooner than expected.

The TV personality took to Instagram on 28 December to share the exciting announcement that she was expecting her fifth child.

Stacey posted a video of a positive pregnancy test, with her breaking the news to her husband Joe.

During the heartwarming video, the star films her positive pregnancy test before calling for Joe to join her in the bathroom.

Swash jokingly asks if Stacey is 'going for a poo', but quickly realises what she is holding in her hand.

He instantly asks if she is joking, with a massive grin on his face.

But just a couple of days after breaking the big news, the Loose Women host updated fans on her due date - and it was much sooner than many were expecting.

"Coming soon… Much sooner than we thought. When we found out we still wanted to have that first few months you usually would to adjust and get excited and enjoy it to ourselves, but that didn’t leave us with very long left," she began.

"So this time next month we will be getting ready to say hello to a whole new pickle.

"So grateful. While we had some time off we thought we better take some memories before it’s too late."

Stacey has four other children; Rose Opal Esmè Solomon-Swash who is one, and Rex Toby Francis Swash, three, who she shares with Joe.

She's also mum to Leighton Barham who is 10, and Zachary Solomon, 14, from previous relationships.
