Stacey Solomon’s dad drops huge hint about her new baby daughter’s name

Stacey Solomon announced the birth of her first daughter with fiancé Joe Swash on Tuesday.

And while she’s so far kept schtum on the name of her new bundle of joy, Stacey’s dad David appeared to drop a huge hint.

David shared a sweet snap of Stacey, 32, just moments after giving birth to her baby girl. He wrote on Instagram: “Proud Daddy Moment well Done to my beautiful Daughter you done amazing. ( joe was good too ) how gorgeous to see number 9 on your Birthday being there was very special welcome to the world picklelet I’m sure you will be so loved and protected.”

The post was flooded with well wishes from Stacey’s fans – including one who suggested a sweet moniker for the newborn.

They wrote underneath the snap: “Beautiful baby congratulations. Would be fun if she was called Lily…Pickle-Lily..lol.”

David appeared to agree, as he was spotted ‘liking’ the comment.

It comes after Stacey’s Loose Women co-star Nadia Sawalha was previously forced to deny accidentally revealing the baby name.

As she attended Stacey’s baby shower, Nadia, 56, shared a number of pictures on her Instagram and gave fans a look into the event, but seemed to reveal the couple’s choice of baby name in her gushing post.

“What a beautiful afternoon spent with a truly beautiful family,” the former EastEnders actress wrote.

“We are all so excited for you and can’t wait to meet your new pickle-Lilly.”

But the star then quickly added that Lilly was her own name for the baby and not the actual choice, as fans weren’t convinced.

“(This is my playful nickname for baba and NOT a name drop!!) Love you Stace and Joe..” she finished.

Stacey revealed she gave birth to her fourth child on her birthday, 4 October.

As she shared the happy news with fans on her Instagram, she gushed: “Sooooo….To my family on here,

“Yesterday I got the best birthday present I could have ever wished for…”
