Former X-Factor star and 2010 winner of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, Stacey Solomon, 33, has revealed the Disney inspired name both she and husband Joe Swash have given to their newly born daughter. Solomon gave birth to her fifth child, third with husband Swash, at the family home at the weekend.
In a message to her 5.5 million followers on Instagram on Monday evening, Solomon revealed her newborn daughter’s name was Belle, describing her as both “beautiful” and “delicate”. Solomon wrote: “Belle 🥀 Our little Belle. Our beautiful, delicate baby girl. Who will forever remind us of the bluebells that are about to bloom as you bring the spring with you into the world. And a little special connection to your Rose. To the moon and back Belle. Forever and always.”
The name Belle comes from Disney movie ‘Beauty and the Beast’. The “connection” between newborn Belle and her older sister Rose is from the same movie. An enchanted red flower comes to symbolise the curse placed upon the Beast in the Disney fairytale.
Solomon met now husband and former EastEnders actor, Joe Swash, 41, when she appeared on I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2010. Solomon went on to win the series. The couple have two other children together and got married in 2022.
“Congratulations to you all xx,” wrote Harry Styles’ mother, Anne Twist. “This name is perfect - she really is a little princess,” said British singer-songwriter, Talia Mar.
