It’s enough to make you broody…

Stacey Solomon has finally unveiled her newborn to the world.

The proud mum shared the first proper photo of the son she and Joe Swash welcomed last month – and he is divine.

In the Instagram post, Stacey also confirmed that they had named him Rex.

She also said that she hadn’t wanted to share his name until his actual due date today.

“Rex Toby Francis Swash,” she captioned the photo.

“Due today, born 23.05.2019 on my Mummy’s birthday.

“Rex because our boys think he sounds like a T-Rex. Francis is Joe’s Nanna’s name and Toby is my Nanna’s name.

“Its taken us this long to announce the name because for some strange, probably hormone and post birth related, reason I didn’t want to do it until his official due date.”

It comes days after Stacey accidentally announced Rex’s name.

The Loose Women presenter, who has opted to keep the name of her son secret since his birth, shared a short video of herself and the baby to Instagram Stories this week.

In the clip, which she quickly deleted, she could be vaguely heard calling him ‘Rex’ and ‘Rexy’.
