Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have decided to call their baby Rex Toby Francis Swash.

Stacey Solomon gave birth to a little baby boy last week on the 23rd May.

The Loose Women star welcomed a little boy with her partner Joe Swash.

Now, Stacey has revealed they have decided to call the little one Rex Toby Francis.

The former X factor star explained that Rex is because her sons, Leighton and Zach, think the little one sounds like a T-Rex.

The names Toby and Francis are the names of both Stacey and Joe's grandmas.

Stacey explained in an Instagram post she wanted to wait until her official due date to announce the name.

Sharing a gorgeous black and white snap of the baby, she wrote: "Rex Toby Francis Swash. Due today, born 23.05.2019 on my Mummy’s birthday. Rex because our boys think he sounds like a T-Rex. Francis is Joe’s Nanna’s name and Toby is my Nanna’s name. Its taken us this long to announce the name because for some strange, probably hormone and post birth related, reason I didn’t want to do it until his official due date."

Joe also shared the picture on his Instagram page, writing: "Welcome to the world REX TOBY FRANCIS SWASH!!"
