Stacey went on to say how 'lucky' she felt after the 'beautiful birth', before adding: "She’s just amazing. I feel really good, thank you so much for asking, loads of you have asked how I feel and if I’m ok.
"I’m just trying to soak it all in because, Rose being so little, this was her a year ago."

Alongside the snaps, Stacey wrote: "🤍 She’s Here 🤍🥲😭 Our beautiful, daughter born at home with all of your brothers and sister ready to snuggle you forever and ever.
"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 your here ."

"Coming soon… much sooner than we thought,” she said at the time.
"When we found out we still wanted to have that first few months you usually would to adjust and get excited and enjoy it to ourselves, but that didn’t leave us with very long left."
She added: "So this time next month we will be getting ready to say hello to a whole new pickle."
