Stacey Solomon reveals her sister has stolen her baby name

Star says she understands why people keep their baby names a secret

Pregnant Stacey Solomon has revealed that her sister Gemma has stolen her baby name.

The Loose Women star, who is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Joe Swash, opened up on today's show.

Stacey is already mum to Zachary, 11, and Leighton, six.

After showing a clip of the Friends episode where Rachel steals Monica's baby name, the ladies entered into a debate about whether you should keep your future baby names a secret.

Andrea McLean then asked Stacey, who is due to give birth this summer, if that's why she isn't revealing the name – or indeed the sex – of her unborn baby.

Some of us might take longer to get pregnant than others, in which case my sister should've waited.

Stacey laughed: "Do you know what, me and my sister were laughing about this the other day – my sister used one of my names as a middle name for her child."

Stacey added: "She didn't know it was one I really wanted but I plan a lot of things out in my head before they actually happen and I did have a list of top five names."

Explaining that Gemma used one of Stacey's names as a middle name, the Loose Women star said that the theft took place "before this pregnancy".

She added: "In all fairness I hadn't expressed to her how much I loved the name and how much I wanted it for my own child."

Telling the panel that she does get "why people don't say the names they want for their children", Stacey added: "Once somebody in your close circle has given their child that name, you can't."

Hinting that perhaps she and Joe had been trying to conceive for a while, Stacey said: "Some of us might take a bit longer to get pregnant than others, in which case my sister should've waited."

However, proving that there's no bad blood and that she has clearly forgiven her sister, Stacey laughed and added: "I'm joking, I love you Gemma."

The star has recently returned from a sunshine holiday with her eldest son Zachary.
