Stacey Solomon has shared her first message as a new mum, a day after giving birth to her baby son with Joe Swash.
The brand new mum tweeted after going into early labour four weeks before her due date.
"No matter how how intense these after birth pains are I’m smiling from ear to ear watching my family at loosewomen celebrate my baby shower without me," she wrote.
"Me and baby are so grateful to have you all in our lives we love you. I’m crying happy tears."
Joe Swash was seen for the first time earlier today looking tired as he adapts to new parenthood for the second time – he already has son Harry from his previous relationship.
The former EastEnders star shared a gushing tribute to his partner of three years last night.
"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," he wrote next to an intimate picture of Stacey cuddling her newborn in a bloodstained hospital bed.
"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."
Stacey's sister Jemma Solomon revealed Joe was a big part of the birth, and even helped deliver his "tiny" son.
Speaking in a phone call on today's Loose Women, the party planner said Stacey's labour lasted just four hours and confirmed they're yet to choose a name for their little boy.
"Such happy news. She's so good, it was amazing, it was such a lovely birth, I felt so priviledged… I felt like it flew out of her!" Jemma told the excited panel.
"She was saying it was hours, but I got into work at 8, he was born 10:01, so I thought: 'That was pretty quick!' He just came so quick I couldn't help."
Explaining what the atmosphere had been like in the delivery room, she said: "There was tears of joy, Joe was so good, he didn't know what to do, he was asking, 'Am I doing it right?'"
"It was so lovely to be a part of it – it was beautiful. I'd love to do it again!"
Asked whether she knew the name of the baby, Jemma went on: "I don't know the name, I don't think they've picked one… so Stacey can you hurry up!"
She also revealed that Stacey's sons Laighton and Zachary had been "so excited" to meet their little brother and that they "came down to the hospital straight away.
"Zach was scared to hold him because he was so tiny," she added.
