Stacey and Joe welcomed their baby daughter and her fourth child on Monday and shared the joyous news that her little tot entered the world with an emotional social media post.
Now Stacey, who shares another son with Joe, Rex and has two others from previous relationships, has taken to Instagram to tell her fans how happy she is.
As she held her sleeping little one in her arms, a giggling Stacey said: “Here she is. Joe has just gone for a walk with Rex and the boys are at school so I thought I would just come on here to say hello.
“She has just has a feed, my nipples are just like one giant blister but I’ve still got lots of serotonin left from the birth so I’m making the most. I love her so much. She’s amazing, the boys are amazing. I’m just so happy. Your messages are so lovely too, every time I’m feeding her I sit and read them and they’re the loveliest comfort ever so thank you and I hope you have a lovely day.”
Stacey welcomed her newborn on her 32nd birthday.
She shared the news by uploading a snap of the baby on Instagram and wrote: “She’s Here – Born at Pickle Cottage on mummy’s birthday. Our little girl… Happy birthday my darling daughter… We all love you more than you could ever imagine.
And the former X Factor contestant – who loves to interact with her fans on Instagram – followed up the update by sharing an intimate video captured throughout the different stages of her labour online.
Stacey explained that she ended up having a home birth – after visiting the hospital or a checkup earlier in the day – at the beginning of the black and white video made out of a montage of clips.
The footage started with Stacey laying on a hospital bed where her bump can be seen with monitors attached.
“I woke up feeling a little twingy so I went to check in on her. She seems happy as Larry and the contractions weren’t strong so we weren’t home,” Stacey typed atop the clip.
The Celebrity Googlebox star then added: “But she decided she was ready to meet us immediately so our community midwives came straight over with all of the gas and air.”
The next clip showed the proud parent sucking on gas and air as she leant on her partner Joe for support.
