She told her followers: “🤍 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. Your brothers, your daddy and I are so in love. Thank you for the most incredible 9 months. Now we cannot wait for the rest of our lives with you…🖤”

And Joe, 39, was quick to comment on the post, with an adorable message for his little family.

He wrote: “My darling girls. I love you more than you’ll ever know,” before joking: “October 4th is going to be an expensive day for daddy xxxx”.

Stacey also shared photos of Joe doting over their daughter - who hasn’t got a name yet - where he can be seen holding her and smiling.

Elsewhere on the Loose Women star’s Instagram Stories, she revealed to her 4.7million followers how she gave birth at home in Pickle Cottage on her 32nd birthday.

The videos start with Stacey seen in a hospital bed, with the caption: "I woke up feeling a little twingey so I went to check in on her. She seemed happy as Larry and the contractions weren’t too strong, so I went home…"

"Seriously regretted not staying in hospital and getting an epidural,” she then wrote.

The video then shows the moments after their daughter arrived, with Stacey adding: "And then… Our darling daughter… "
