Sharing snaps of their gorgeous newborn, the now mum of five wrote: "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 your 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."
Stacey is mum to Rose who was born in October 2021, as well as sharing Rex with Joe also. She is mum to Zachary and Leighton from previous relationships and step-mum to Joe's son Harry.

After waiting only a few weeks before her due date to reveal she was expecting, Stacey that she found out later than expected and explained why she didn't realise she was pregnant for several months.
Taking to Instagram for a question and answers session with fans, Stacey said between irregular periods and the stress of planning a wedding, it took her some time before she noticed she was pregnant.
In a video on her story, she said that they found out late, which meant that they didn't go through a stage where they felt the need to hide the pregnancy.
"I must have missed periods at the beginning, but I was breastfeeding Rose and when I stopped breastfeeding my periods were a bit all over the place anyway," she said. "So it didn’t even cross my mind because I just thought they’ll eventually go back to normal, but they never did."
She also wrote: "We really wanted it to ourselves for the beginning bit, but we missed the beginning bit if that makes sense. We didn’t have to keep it a secret for 8 months because we didn’t know for 8 months.
"My periods were irregular from breastfeeding, we were planning a wedding then getting married, and then just crazy life and it honestly didn’t register."
