New mum of five Stacey Solomon has revealed that icy water and chocolate are helping her get through sleepless nights with her newborn.
Stacey, 33, took to Instagram on 11 February to share the happy news that she and husband Joe Swash, 41, have welcomed a baby daughter together.
Stacey is also mum to Zachary, 14, with her ex Dean Cox and son Leighton, 10, with ex Aaron Barham, while Joe is dad to teenage son Harry, 15, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Emma Sophocleous.
Stacey and Joe are also parents to Rex and Rose.
Although Stacey kept her pregnancy a secret until December, she has been open about her experience with having a baby again, sharing plenty of updates on Instagram.
On Sunday evening, Stacey posted a photo on her Instagram Story of her baby sleeping as she holds a cup of ice water. There's also a package of peanut M&Ms in the background.
She wrote: "Goodnight everyone…
"The cluster feeds have come to an end and she's settled. I'm ready for the night feeds! Icy water and chocolate are getting me through.
"To anyone else about to go to bed knowing they'll be up in 2 hours you've got this Mumma! You're doing incredible. Keep going. Lots of love from me and this little pickle."
Although Stacey is yet to reveal the name of the baby girl, she revealed in the birth announcement that she gave birth at home, surrounded by her other children.
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 you're here. Welcome to the world beautiful girl, thank you for the last few months in my tummy, we can’t wait to love you forever and ever we are so grateful we get to be your family."
On Sunday, the mum took to Instagram once more to open up further about the birth while sharing an adorable video that showed the newborn on her chest.
She said: “Hi, I just wanted to come on and say hi and thank you for all your lovely messages. A lot of you have been making me laugh, you’re like ‘where did all that hair come from?’.
“We don’t know, I literally pulled her out and was like, ‘Joe, she’s got hair’. She’s nearly got more hair than Rose and it’s really dark.”
“She’s just amazing, I feel really good. Thank you so much for asking. I feel really good.
“I feel a little bit on a high, the birth was so nice. I feel so lucky. I’ll do like a real chat catchup soon, I’m just trying to soak it all in.”
