Stacey Solomon appears to have announced the birth of her baby daughter. 

The Loose Women star has been unusually quiet on social media in the past 24 hours.

She celebrated her 32nd birthday yesterday and it appears to have been a double celebration for Stacey and her family after she hinted she had given birth in a cryptic post on her Instagram stories this evening. 

She wrote: "To my family on here, yesterday I got the best birthday present I could ever have wished for...."


It is Stacey and fiance Joe Swash's second child together, with the couple sharing two-year-old Rex.

She also has two other sons, Zachary and Leighton from previous relationships.

Stacey had previously revealed she was due to give birth at the end of September or in early October.

She spent yesterday morning celebrating her birthday with cake in bed at the family home in Essex. 

Fans were shown a snap of her with her sons and her cake, with a caption: "Had a lovely morning with these three in bed.

"We had to do the birthday candles about nine times for Rex. He loved blowing out my candles."

Rumours had spread throughout yesterday afternoon and evening Stacey had given birth after she was suspiciously quiet on her social media pages. 

This came despite Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp suffering outages for around six hours yesterday evening.
