Stacey Solomon has given an insight into her birth plan as she is set to welcome her fourth child and first girl with fiancé Joe Swash.

The 31 year old, who is currently redecorating her utility room is a gorgeous green shade, has been updating her 4.6million Instagram followers on her upcoming birth as she prepares to welcome her daughter.

Stacey, who is mum to Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine, from previous relationships, along with two year old who she shares with former EastEnders star Joe, 39, has recently discussed her plans for a potential home birth at her £1.2million Essex pad.

Taking to her Instagram, Stacey, who was seen in her grey pyjamas from the Mrs Hinch collection, said: "I feel like she has really dropped down recently which is making me panic – I don't want this to be over and also I just need you to wait until we have done the utility, kitchen and front room! If you could?

"I'm taking me, my tea and my little low Pickle to bed. Hopefully she is just resting in my vagina because it's comfy not because she wants to make an appearance anytime soon!"

Stacey has revealed that she is still in talks over her birthing plan but would love her mum Fiona Solomon to be at her side after she has supported her throughout the previous three births.

"The birth – it is still something we are talking about. I wouldn’t be able to have my mum there, my mum has been there for every other birth, which sounds sad because I am 31 years old but I feel like she won’t let me die and she has always been there. We are looking at our options for a home birth," Stacey told The Evening Standard.

Speaking about a home birth at her sprawling Essex home, Stacey added: "It lessens the Covid risk… but then there is the risk if you need to be blue lighted in and there is an emergency."


The red-headed beauty revealed how she is weighing up her options but described how the 'risk of getting Covid' along with her fiancé Joe unable to 'come in until the last minute' and her mum not allowed to be at her bedside are factors in her decision.

However Stacey, who has created a gorgeous pink nursery for her baby girl, has already started packing a hospital bag after her two year old Rex was born at 37 weeks.

The craft enthusiast shared a reel hanging up the pretty clothes on an airer, captioned: "Best smell and feeling ever. I know I have some time (8 weeks ish) to go but Rex came at 37 weeks and I was so unprepared and felt like I'd lost time so I don't want to wait until last minute this time."
