He went on to praise his partner for giving birth: "I’m lost for words to describe how I’m feeling. So for now, I’m going to spend the next few days and the rest of my life falling more in love with these two humans.

"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"

Thousands of their followers rushed to congratulate the pair with many praising them for posting a 'real' photo post-birth, with one person writing: "In tears reading this so bloody refreshing and beautiful to see a man love and fully appreciate his woman 🙏🏼 you're amazing Stacey, cherish your new bundle and the pair of you. Congratulations 💞"

Fearne Cotton said: "Wow what a beautifully powerful picture! I'm thrilled for you both 💗"

A fourth wrote: "What a moving picture! You look beautiful ❤️"

One more added: "This has to be the most natural and beautiful photos x congratulations xxx 💞💞💞"

Joe has since shared another snap of their little one and confirmed they've had a baby boy. He shared a snap of himself kissing his little feet and wrote: "Good morning son xxxxx"

Stacey is already a mum to Zachery, 11, and Leighton, six, and the former EastEnders actor is already a dad to his 11-year-old son Harry from a previous relationship.

The Loose Women star recently opened up to Closer magazine about her incredible family, explaining: "My boys are incredible loved - by me, and their fathers, and by Joe, who is just another positive male role model in their lives.

"And that can only be good for them. They are so content, and confident and happy. We wouldn't have decided to expand our family if we thought it would negatively affect the boys or their upbringing."
