Stacey Solomon's daughter's name has sweet connection to Joe Swash's romantic Christmas Eve proposal

STACEY Solomon revealed her newborn daughter's name yesterday – and it has a sweet connection to her fiancé Joe Swash's romantic proposal.

The 32-year-old star gave birth to her little girl last Monday but only announced the little one's name, Rose Opal Esmè, on Tuesday much to fans' delight.

Stacey and Joe welcomed their little girl just over nine months after they got engaged on Christmas Eve.

And it appears the Loose Women panellist has paid tribute to that special day by naming her daughter Rose.

At the time, Joe got down on one knee infront of a spot filled with white roses during a romantic woodland walk.

Announcing their engagement news last year, Stacey posted a picture of her flashing the ring, overcome with emotion, as she lay back on a huge bunch of roses.

The star also explained how Joe popped the question while on a walk in the woods opposite their house with her two sons Leighton, nine, Zachary, 13, and their two-year-old child Rex.

She wrote: "He asked me to marry him and after crying for what felt like a very long time… I said yes" adding emojis of a heart and diamond ring.

Stacey then added a personal message to 39-year-old Joe: "To the moon and back bub. I have no words 🖤 💍."

The 32-year-old star gave birth to her little girl last Monday, which was also her birthday.

Taking to Instagram account yesterday, the TV favourite proudly announced her daughter's full name as: Rose Opal Esmè Solomon-Swash.

She wrote: "Our beautiful flower – Our precious jewel – who is ever loved. It’s been the most magical week. We love you to the moon and back our little Rose 🥺🌹 We feel so so lucky to have you here…"

And while Stacey's followers were quick to share their approval for the pretty name, most would be unaware of how special it is to Stacey and fiancé Joe.

The choice of 'Opal' as a middle name holds particular weight for the couple.

In addition to it being Rose and Stacey's birthstone, it is also incredibly meaningful to the proud parents' relationship.

Last year, Joe proposed to Stacey with a special engagement ring that has two Australian opals inside.

This was a reference to "where they fell in love", with the pair meeting Down Under when Stacey competed on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, and ex contestant Joe hosted its sister programme on ITV2.

Stacey had said of her stunning rock at the time: “Sometimes I take it off just to look inside it. Because inside it are two Australian Opals.

“Opal is my birthstone and Australia is where we fell in love. It gives me goosebumps every time I look at them.”

The opals being a part of Joe's proposal makes the name all the more important to the family.

Meanwhile, there were several secret signs that Joe and Stacey were going to call their daughter Rose in recent months – from Stacey's gorgeous maternity clothes, to the little one's eye-catching nursery.
