Stacey Solomon announces birth of fifth child, baby Belle

The newborn is the Jewish singer's third child with husband Joe Swash


Jewish celebrity Stacey Solomon has announced the birth of her fifth child, who is named Belle.

In a social media post on Tuesday, the former X Factor contestant revealed how her newborn’s name complements that of her eldest daughter.

The 33-year-old Loose Women presenter posted a picture of the newborn on Monday, telling followers the baby girl was named Belle, the French word for beautiful.

“Our little Belle. Our beautiful, delicate baby girl. Who will forever remind us of the bluebells that are about to bloom as you bring spring with you into the world… And a little special connection to your Rose.

“To the moon and back Belle. Forever and always,” she wrote via Instagram on Tuesday.

The former King Solomon High School student first announced the birth on Saturday evening, writing that her fifth child had “literally flown into the world”.

“She’s here. Our beautiful daughter was born at home with all of your brothers and sisters ready to snuggle you forever and ever.

“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,” she continued.

Ms Solomon and her husband former EastEnders actor Joe Swash also share a three-year-old son Rex and a one-year-old daughter Rose. 

Last July the long-term couple married with a "Jewish blessing" at their home, Pickle Cottage in Essex.

Ms Solomon is also mother to two sons from previous relationships, 10-year-old Leighton and 14-year-old Zachary, while Mr Swash is dad to a teenage son, Harry, with former fiancée Emma Sophocleous.

In 2010, when she won I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, during which she first met her future husband, Solomon told the JC: "I'm so proud of being Jewish. For me, religion starts with being a good person and that's what I'm trying to be."

During his stag holiday in Ibiza last summer, Mr Swash joked in an Instagram video that Stacey's father David, a wedding photographer well known among the Strictly Orthodox community, was his "biggest liability".
