Stacey Solomon gives birth ‘earlier than planned’ and shares first picture

STACEY Solomon has given birth to her first child with boyfriend Joe Swash.

The Loose Women presenter, 29, went into labour “a lot earlier than planned” as she was only eight months pregnant and appeared on the chat show just yesterday.

Taking to Instagram, Joe admitted he was in awe of his girlfriend and “witnessed the impossible” as Stacey gave birth.

He shared a photo of Stacey just after giving birth with her newborn nestled on her chest.

“This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world,” he wrote.

“We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come. Mummy and baby are well and resting.

“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we’ve received over the last 8 months.

“I’m lost for words to describe how I’m feeling. So for now, I’m going to spend the next few days and the rest of my life falling more in love with these two humans.

“I didn’t think it possible but, today I witnessed the impossible. My partner, My love, my life, you are a super human. I am forever in awe. Joe X”

Earlier this week Stacey revealed she still feels like a “single mum” – despite expecting boyfriend Joe Swash’s baby.

The Loose Women star, 29, says her two children Zachery and Leighton are her “sole responsibility” and she doesn’t expect any man to take them on.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun Online, Stacey said: “Joe and I speak about this a lot and he is an incredible role model in the kids’ lives.

“He supports me fully and he adores me and the children and it is wonderful.

“But still fundamentally I feel like a single mum because they are solely my responsibility and I wouldn’t ask for anyone to take them on.”

Stacey’s comments come after she admitted to feeling “guilty” about having three children by different dads amid fears they would have a “confusing upbringing.”

The TV star admitted she isn’t concerned by her looks and accepts there will be “placenta everywhere” as the new baby arrives.

She’s already looking forward to eating fast food on the way home from the hospital, which she cares more about than having beauty treatments.

She said: “I have given birth twice so I know the mess that I get in. What is the point in having a beauty treatment before? It’s a waste of money.

“The midwives aren’t going to care either. I will be puking up and there will be placenta everywhere and I will have a baby coming out of my vagina, I don’t think I will care.

“I’m going to spend the money on a McDonalds on the way home from hospital.”
