But Rose's gorgeous name appears to have a sweet connection to the doting mother-of-four.

The couple's choice to use Opal as their daughter's middle name links to the fact it is the birthstone for both Stacey and Rose, who share a birthday.

It's also special to Stacey and Joe as he proposed to her with a ring that had two Australian opals engraved into it.

The stunning TV star previously said: "Opal is my birthstone and Australia is where we fell in love. It gives me goosebumps every time I look at them."

The little one was born on October 4 – Stacey's 32nd birthday.

Announcing the news the following day on Instagram, she penned: "She's Here Born at Pickle Cottage on mummy's birthday. Our little girl… Happy birthday my darling daughter… We all love you more than you could ever imagine.

"Your brothers, your daddy and I are so in love. Thank you for the most incredible 9 months. Now we cannot wait for the rest of our lives with you…"

She's got four big brothers to look after her.

Stacey and Joe already shared son Rex, two, and Stacey was already mum to Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine.

Joe also has a son, Harry, 14, from a previous relationship.

Stacey had been open and honest throughout her pregnancy journey, sharing regular updates with her fans.

And after announcing the birth, she also shared a tear-jerking video on her Instagram Stories that explained how her baby girl had been born at home.

"Quickly regretted not staying in hospital and getting an epidural…And then… She was in our arms in real life
