Stacey Solomon appears to have accidentally revealed baby son’s name on Instagram

Stacey Solomon may have accidentally let slip her newborn son’s name in her latest Instagram story, which she swiftly deleted.

The Loose Women Star, who welcomed her first child with Joe Swash on the 23rd May, appears to have mistakenly revealed her baby name on Wednesday night.

The 29-year-old mum-of-three videoed herself and seven-year-old son Leighton playing with a tangerine, while the pair joked about breastfeeding the newborn.

The TV presenter uploaded the video to her Instagram stories.

In the video Stacey said: ‘When your orange looks perfect for breastfeeding!’

She jokingly said: ‘Should have given that one to Rexy!’

Stacey then quickly deleted the post, leaving her followers to question if she had accidentally revealed to her 1.7m Instagram followers that she had called her baby son, Rex or Rexi.

Fans and followers soon took to Joe Swash’s Instagram account to question the baby’s name on his latest post with his son.

One wrote: ‘Is he called Rex?.’

Another posted: ‘So your babies name is Rex? If I love it.’

Another added: ‘The baby boy name is Rex or Rexy I am not sure which one it is because I have seen both names bundled about on here ok. Apparently Stacey put a story on her Instagram saying it is Rex or Rexy but 30 mins later she deleted the post! 🙄.’

However, neither Stacey nor Joe have confirmed their little ones baby name just yet.

The speculation comes after Stacey shares an honest update about her struggles to breastfeed her son.

Stacey took to Instagram to share a cute make-up free snap of her breastfeeding, jokingly admitting he can not ‘latch onto her Pepperami nipples’.

Trying to smile 😂 This is my face every time he latches on 😂 I didn’t breastfeed Leighton and I don’t remember 11 years ago with Zach so it came as a bit of a shock to me when my feeding experience wasn’t blissful breast time and expressing pints of milk in between! After not mastering the latch that leaving my boobs engorged and my nipples feeling like they’d been rubbed on sandpaper I think we are finally getting there. I’ve been milked by just about every health visitor and breastfeeding specialist around (for which I am eternally grateful) and my baby can finally get his tiny mouth around, what Zach and Leighton call, my Pepperami nipples! We still haven’t mastered it yet and we might never master it – that’s ok too. I just thought for anyone out there struggling or who struggled to breastfeed that it’s perfectly OK, there’s nothing wrong with you, and you’re doing amazingly. All things I’ve struggled to believe at times. It’s so wonderful to see people’s happy breastfeeding pictures and amazing expressing photos – I love them, but from somebody who is lucky to express 10ml if not dust when I put a pump on I would have loved to see some different experiences too. Here’s to making it work no matter what way round you do it! Breast or bottle, Mammas, YOU ARE INCREDIBLE! 💪🏼

The little one was welcomed into world a lot earlier than expected, with the couple confirming the news on their Instagram accounts.

Stacey announced she was pregnant with her first child with Joe Swash in February.

Stacey is also mum to 11-year-old Zachary and seven-year-old Leighton from previous relationships.

Congratulations again to Joe and Stacey, and we can’t wait to hear what they decide to call their very cute baby boy.
