The special meaning behind Stacey Solomon's baby daughter's middle name 'Opal' revealed

STACEY Solomon has finally revealed her newborn baby daughter's name – and one of her middle names has a particularly poignant meaning.

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

Taking to Instagram account this evening, 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 fiance Joe Swash.

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.
