Stacey Solomon has announced the birth of her fifth child and revealed she gave birth at home surrounded by her children.

The mum-of-five, 33, took to Instagram on 11 February to share the happy news that she and husband Joe Swash, 41, have welcomed a baby daughter together. The couple are also parents to Rex, three, and one year old Rose.

Stacey shared a collection of adorable family photos to announce the news alongside a sweet caption, where she revealed she'd given birth at her and Joe's family home in Essex, lovingly dubbed Pickle Cottage.

"She’s Here. Our beautiful daughter born at home with all of your brothers and sister ready to snuggle you forever and ever," she began by writing.

The Loose Women panellist continued: "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 you're 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, who is also mum to sons Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, from previous relationships, had previously outlined her hopes of having a home birth with her fifth child, after welcoming her daughter Rose at home in 2021.
