Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash welcome first child as she gives birth ‘early’

Stacey Solomon has given birth "a lot earlier than planned".

The Loose Women star has welcomed her third child, her first with boyfriend Joe Swash.

It's believed Stacey has given birth around one month early.

Joe shared a picture of Stacey lying in her hospital bed with the baby on her chest on her Instagram account.

He wrote: "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. Mummy and baby are well and resting.

"We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we’ve received over the last 8 months. 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"

The picture Joe shared shows Stacey looking exhausted as she lies in her hospital bed with her baby on her chest.

Her clothes, her newborn infant and a towel covering the baby are covered in blood.

The couple's famous friends rushed to congratulate them.

Sam Faiers said: "Wow congratulations, such beautiful words xxxx"

"All the love," Laura Whitmore added.

And Stacey's Loose Women co-star Andrea McLean added: "Oh my goodness!! Congratulations!!! I’m so happy for you all. Sending you so much love"

Stacey, 29, was already mum to Zachary, 11, and Leighton, six, from two previous relationships.

The couple are yet to announce the gender of their baby or the name.

Stacey once said on Loose Women that she felt society made her question whether it was acceptable for her to have a third child to a third father.

But in true Stacey style, she followed her heart.

The former X Factor star told Mirror Online: "I would never let society determine my life, for sure, so it would never have stopped me from having a baby but it often made me question things I wouldn't question if I wasn't listening to anyone else's advice.

"For example I would just fall in love and procreate and go on the journey that life takes you, but when people have an opinion or have something to say about the fact that you're not with the father of your children and to be with someone else and have more children does make you sit there and go, 'Am I doing the wrong thing or is this okay?, 'Should I or shouldn't I?' and you do question it more.

"But I wouldn't say that anything changed in terms of those opinions affecting how I live my life but they definitely do put a pressure on where you question yourself unnecessarily."
