Stacey Solomon has an unexpected home birth this week when she and partner Joe Swash welcomed their new little girl.

The latest addition to the Solomon-Swash clan arrived on Stacey's 32nd birthday on Monday.

The family were not planning on Stacey giving birth at home but after returning home from the hospital, earlier in the day, the Loose Women star's contractions became closer together and before long she knew she had to push.

Stacey and Joe's newborn arrived safely with the help of community midwives who administered gas and air to the TV favourite as she was unable to have an epidural due to not being in the hospital.

And with Stacey enjoying her new tot, here is a look inside her and Joe's Essex home, named Pickle Cottage after their son Rex, that they purchased in March.

The couple shared the news that they were moving into their Tudor-style house earlier this year and explained how they had been searching for a while to find the spot that would be their 'forever home.'

It is reported that the property cost the couple £1.2 million and since they moved in Stacey has been busy renovating and putting her stamp on the pad.

She has been showcasing her DIY projects and inviting fans to watch her transform the rooms via her Instagram Stories.

Most recently, the mother of four completed her and Joe's bedroom.

The star made the space the ultimate retreat with a bath placed under the window in the room and completed the sleeping area with a huge double bed, white walls with sunken shelves and she told of her hopes to add in a walk-in wardrobe.

She shared before and after snaps of the room to demonstrate the impressive makeover and revealed all the special touches included, such as crisp bedding, plush throws, plump pillows, floral displays of pampas and rows of candles.

The bedroom being complete followed on from Stacey creating a roo fit for their little princess.

Proving that the Loose Women star is hopeful that her daughter will be a girlie girl, the former X Factor contestant decided to complete the interior with floral flourishes - including creating a stand-out flower wall with faux roses.

Stacey spent hours glueing the artificial blooms to produce the eye-catching decor and finished of the area with a large mirror in the centre.

Preparing for nights up with the newborn, the ITV favourite also dedicated a space for nursing which included a plush pink velvet chair covered with a canopy.

Stacey decided on placing the nappy changing area nearby the window and placed a flower mobile above.

Keeping with the floral touches, the changing mat is covered in a fabric decorated with a flower design and baskets filled with baby essentials are stored nearby.

A white cot is placed in the room as well as cute artwork on the walls and a pink wardrobe filled with items for the new arrival.

Stacey also swapped the carpet for grey wooden flooring and added a white rug atop, she also added panelling to the walls before coating them in candy floss toned paint.

Before focusing on the pink room, Stacey complete son Rex's space.

Stacey decided to select a black, white and grey theme for the little boy's bedroom which featured cute animal details and star-shaped light fittings.

The creative personality created a striking feature wall by placing pandas diagonally and painting a balloon to pull the design together alongside a quote reading: "The best thing to hold onto in life is each other!"

A single bed stands in the room and the DIY lover painted the feature fireplace in grey tones to fit the design of the room.

The property has several washrooms and Stacey managed to do up on of the drab bathrooms on a budget of less than £30.

While carrying out the transformation, Stacey pictured the affordable products she used as she 'jazzed up' her bathroom and revealed her top tips while documenting the process on her Instagram stories.

She pained the brown wood cupboards black, refreshed the tiles with white grout and replaced the old mirror for a sleek one with a black frame.

Stacey added on-trend faux plants and completed the area with bamboo pots - to store bathroom essentials in.

Another one of the bathrooms follows on the black and white theme with white walls featuring prints with fun quotes reading: "Nakey nakey naked" and "Nice bum".

The downstairs bathroom stands out compared to the other two as it is painted baby blue - to match the vintage toilet and cistern plumped into the space.

The old-style loo is white with blue flowers - which inspired the star to follow the rest of the restroom with the same colour palette.

Another area that has been revamped is the staircase.

Giving the hallway a new look, she had the red carpet removed and painted the stairs a lighter colour.

Stacey revealed her plans to stain and treat the wood and add in a runner carpet in a light colour in order to brighten up the area.

The keen crafter has also worked on the conservatory.

Putting her handiwork to good use, she covered the dated sun-rooms ceramic tiled flooring with new on-trend wood style tiles crafted out of laminate.

Stacey explained that she enrolled the help of professionals for the flooring overhaul but added that she got involved where she could - including on her hands and knees to lay the flooring atop of mastic - and added photos as evidence of her renovation skills.

The ex-singer has also spruced up the kitchen.

She decided the only way to modernise the small space was to cover up the old-fashioned countertops.

Stacey purchased some stick-on marble paper which did wonders to brighten up and modernise the sink area.

She also painted the cupboards underneath a striking dark blue colour which instantly made the room look like a photo from an interior design magazine.

The talented home-lover then made the decision to paint the actual kitchen sink white too in order to brighten up the room even further.

Finally, Stacey added another touch of glamour by placing gold handles on the cupboards and installing a corner-shelf above the sink so she could hang a plant from it.
