It was certainly a shock for them, as she was only eight months pregnant.

The couple has already adapted to the beautiful surprise, though - just as you'd expect from the down-to-earth pair.

Joe revealed on Instagram on Thursday evening (May 23): "This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world [sic].

"We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come.

We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we’ve received over the last eight months.

"Mummy and baby are well and resting. 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.

"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. Joe X"

Stacey shared the post, which included a shot of her with the newborn, on her page.

The couple already had three boys - Stacey, mum to Zachary, 11, and Leighton, six; Joe dad to harry, 11.

Just two days ago, heavily pregnant Stacey hit back after being criticised for revealing her unshaved armpits on Instagram.

The Loose Women star was filming a swimming class with her two sons when she received the comments about her body hair.

She shared an Instagram video of Zachary, 11, and Leighton, seven, playing in the water and her underarms could be seen in the shot.

But the 29-year-old voiced her shock that some people then bothered to comment unkindly on her body.

She ranted on her Instagram Story: "Baffled at the hairy armpit comments. I honestly didn't notice them."

Stacey then spoke up for all women and aired her frustration about the negative attitude towards female body hair.

She said: "When are we going to be less offended by women who may not want to or have just forgotten to shave for a few weeks (months, maybe years)."
