He captioned the Instagram snaps: ‘I know I’m not very good on here anyway but lots of you asking where I’ve been.

‘Just been having the best week of my life. Trying to make myself useful to be honest. Giving all our big boys as much love as I can and looking after out girls.

‘It’s just been so amazing to do this all again. And to see the boys fall in love with their sister. Our daughter. Still doesn’t feel real.

‘Thank you for all the messages. And yes, Stace made this montage for me I just chose the song because you know I’m c**p at them.’

Joe’s post came after it emerged Stacey was was forced to change the moniker she was originally planning after realising the baby’s initials would spell out an unfortunate word.

The singer wanted to name her baby after the season in which she was born, meaning the little girl would have been called Autumn Solomon-Swash.

She told her Instagram followers on Saturday night: ‘We loved the name Autumn but then we realised her initials would be ASS.

‘So it helped us rule out all of the ”A” names.’

Stacey recently asked fans to send her ideas for names after trawling through books with partner Joe for inspiration.

In the meantime, she is giving a few names a test run in a bid to see which ones feel right. 

The former X Factor contestant said: ‘There’s a few we love so we are calling her those at the moment and seeing which one suits her the best I know that probably sounds silly.

On Friday, Stacey took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of the tot’s toes and wrote alongside the post: ‘So Joe and me are going to spend the day getting the baby name books out and hopefully find out what her name is.’
