"We can’t believe you're here. Welcome to the world beautiful girl, thank you for the last few months in my tummy, we can’t wait to love you forever and ever we are so grateful we get to be your family"

Stacey Solomon's pregnancy health struggles

Towards the end of her pregnancy, Stacey Solomon took to Instagram to speak candidly about her struggles during her fifth pregnancy, including fatigue as well as low iron levels. In a video posted to her Instagram story, she admitted to feeling like a 'sloth,' revealing, "I feel so gross at the minute. You know I'm just at that stage where I actually can't breathe and I'm so passive." 

Speaking about her bump, she confessed to some subsequent fashion struggles, "It won't go down, it doesn't matter what I do," she said of her top. "I just feel like a sloth. I feel like an absolute sloth right now. I wanna just roll everywhere. I don't want to walk anywhere anymore. I just want to teddy bear roll."

The star also shared a video of her making a smoothie, explaining that she had been told to up her intake of vitamins to combat low iron levels and boost her energy.
