Stacey Solomon has taken to Instagram to update fans on breastfeeding her newborn daughter.
The Loose Women panelist and her partner Joe Swash welcomed their daughter, whose name has yet to be announced, on Stacey's birthday on Monday.
The 32-year-old documented the home birth on social media on Tuesday evening, and she has now revealed her nipples feel like 'one giant blister'.
Watch the adorable clip below:
Stacey was all smiles as she spoke to her followers on Instagram about her painful nipples, as she cradled her daughter.
“She just had a feed. My nipples are like one giant blister but I’ve still got lots of serotonin left from the birth so I’m making the most,” she whispers.
“I love her so much. She’s amazing. The boys are amazing. I’m so happy."
Stacey thanked her followers for their kind messages after announcing the birth.
"Your messages are so lovely too. Every time I'm breastfeeding her I sit and I read them and they’re the loveliest comfort ever. Thank you and I hope you have a lovely day.”
The Loose Women star revealed she was expecting “a little pickle” in April with fiance Joe Swash, 39, after several months of trying.
Stacey and Joe are already parents to Zachary, 13, Leighton, nine, and two-year-old Rex.
The former X-Factor contestant candidly opened up that she suffered a miscarriage before conceiving her little girl.
In an emotive Instagram post, Stacey explained: “For a really long time we've been trying for another pickle.
"It didn't work out and this was our news quite a few times..."
The Instagram Stories showed a screengrab of a form which sadly read: "Diagnosis based on ultrasound findings: complete miscarriage."
"We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys. It is our biggest privilege in life and we are so grateful to be parents, so we stopped trying and counted ourselves so so so blessed already," she added.
But after feeling unwell, Stacey went for an ultrascan which revealed she was expecting again.
Stacey shared the joyous 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."
