"We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we've received over the last 8 months. I'm lost for words to describe how I'm feeling. So for now, I'm going to spend the next few days and the rest of my life falling more in love with these two humans."

Swash ended the message, which is accompanied by a photo of Solomon holding the tot, with the words: "I didn't think it possible but, today I witnessed the impossible. My partner, My love, my life, you are a super human. I am forever in awe."

It is thought the baby, which has yet to be publicly named, arrived up to a month early. The photos show a understandably tired looking Solomon, cuddling the baby who is on her chest wrapped in blankets.

Solomon's colleagues at Loose Women took to social media to congratulate the pair, with the show's official account tweeting: "A huge congratulations to beautiful couple @StaceySolomon and @realjoeswash on their little bundle of joy! Love and hugs from everyone at Loose Women."
