TV presenter Stacey Solomon has shared the adorable meaning behind her newborn daughter’s name.
However, the Loose Women host has broken tradition with her bundle of joy’s name.
Fans had been waiting for the announcement, after Solomon broke the news of her pregnancy on 28 December to the surprise of her 5.5 million follows on Instagram.
Just a few weeks later, the little one made her arrival into the world on 11 February, with Solomon sharing several photos of her daughter and her growing family.
But it would be another two days until the presenter revealed her little girl’s name.
She shared the news over Instagram, with a sweet post of her sleeping daughter in which she gushed about the new arrival.
“Belle. Our little Belle. Our beautiful, delicate baby girl. Who will forever remind us of the bluebells that are about to bloom as you bring the spring with you into the world,” wrote Solomon.
She continued: “And a little special connection to your Rose…To the moon and back Belle. Forever and always “
During the loving tribute, the TV host also hinted at her newborn’s name ‘special connection’ with her eldest daughter, Rose – which many fans spotted immediately.
Fans had thought the star would name her child with a ‘R’ like her other children, Rex and Rosie, whom she shares with husband, Joe Swash.
However, Belle was named after the main character in the beloved Disney film Beauty and the Beast, which features a red rose in a glass jar.
The link to Rose and the film was even hinted at in Solomon’s post, with the star using several emojis of the red rose in her post.
However, many fans has already guessed that the new born’s name would share a connection to Rose.
This is after Solomon held a baby shower on 29 January, which featured hundreds and hundred of fake white roses as decoration, hinting at her little one’s name.
Belle also shares another special link to her other siblings, which fans will have guessed ahead of the announcement.
Although unconfirmed by Solomon, it's likely the little girl being will be referred to as ‘pickle’ – Solomon’s pet name for her kids.
The term of endearment has become so loved by the TV host, that she named her home ‘pickle cottage’ – in a nod to her five children who live at the rural retreat.
