Stacey Solomon forced to rule out beautiful baby name over unfortunate detail

By Jessica Sansome

Stacey Solomon's baby girl is almost a week old but finding her a suitable name is proving tricky.

The 32-year-old TV star and fiance Joe Swash welcomed their first daughter into the world at their home - adorably named Pickle Cottage - last Monday which also happened to be Stacey's birthday.

After keeping fans updated throughout her pregnancy, things are no different now her little girl is here with Stacey offering regular updates on the newborn.

From meeting her older brothers Rex, 2, Leighton, 9, and Zachary, 13, to her birth story - Stacey has already shared it all.

But on Saturday, the Loose Women star spoke of her sadness as she struggles with breastfeeding again.

The mum-of-four, who previously revealed that she had struggled while feeding her son Rex, offered words of encouragement for fellow mums who may be going through the same thing.

And after pleading with fans for help on a name for her daughter, Stacey offered an update.

She and Joe have been forced to rule out a beautiful name due to an unfortunate detail.

The loved-up couple realised that her full name would be Autumn Solomon-Swash - with Stacey pointing out the issue with her initials.

"We loved the name Autumn but then we realised her initials would be A**," Stacey explained to fans.

"So it helped us rule out all of the 'A' names."

After asking fans to message her baby name ideas, Stacey has thanked her followers for their suggestions and has been toying with a few options.

"Thank you sooooo much for sharing your girls names yesterday there were so many good ones Joe and I hadn't even thought of," she 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."

Amid intense speculation about what she'll call her new bundle of joy, Stacey shared a sweet photo on Friday of the baby's toes who the family have nicknamed "Princess Pickle", as she revealed their struggle to find a name.

She said: "So Joe and me are going to spend the day getting the baby name books out and hopefully find what her name is.

"Any ideas welcome... I love hearing ideas for names, my mind is completely blank".

In a message sent to her Loose Women co-stars this week, Stacey said her daughter is already "a strong-minded, wilful woman just like her aunties."
