Stacey Solomon has given birth to a baby boy!
The Loose Women star's partner, Joe Swash, shared the delightful news on social media last night, revealing that his and Stacey's son arrived a few weeks earlier than expected.
The newborn is the third son for Stacey, and Joe's second son.
And after making the happy announcement, Stacey's Loose Women co-stars of course flocked to social media to share messages of congratulations for the family.
Ruth Langsford was among the first to comment on Joe's photo, writing, 'Congratulations love birds! SO happy for you both! 👶🏻❤️'
While Nadia Sawalha dedicated an entire social media post to Stacey and her newborn son, congratulating the entire family on the new arrival.
In the message, she also revealed just how early Stacey's baby had arrived, joking that she thought she had 'another two weeks to get doula ready!'
Nadia wrote, 'Heh there @staceysolomon we are all over the moon for you @realjoeswashy Zak and Leighton !! Congratulations to you all a beautiful new baba !! Well bloody done goddess girl !!
'You do realise you will have to have another one now that I didn’t get to be there at the birth !! I thought we had two more weeks for me to get doula ready !! 😂♥️♥️😂 hugs and kisses to you all and I can’t wait for a baby snuggle !!! 🌈🌈🌈'
Christine Lampard, who welcomed her own baby girl just a few months ago, also shared a sweet message. She said, 'Amazing news!!! Congratulations 😍😘🤗'.
Plenty more of Stacey and Joe's celebrity friends took to social media to congratulate the pair on their first baby together, including Myleene Klass, Denise Van Outen, and Paddy McGuinness.
This morning Joe posted a sweet photo of himself kissing his newborn son's feet, in the post revealing that he and Stacey had had a baby boy.
In a touching message announcing the baby's birth, Joe paid tribute to Stacey, saying, 'My love, my life, you are a super human'.
He said, 'This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world. We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come.
'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'
Stacey appeared on Loose Women just two days ago, suggesting that she certainly didn't expect her baby to born this week.
So we're glad mum and baby are happy and healthy!
