Stacey Solomon reveals sister Jemma ‘stole’ her baby name before birth of daughter

Stacey Solomon and sister Jemma Solomon have an incredibly close bond, with Jemma even being honoured with the role of birth partner for her younger sibling.

However, there is one matter that is a point of contention for the sisters – baby names.

Stacey previously revealed she's careful not to reveal her favourites out of fear Jemma will take them.

"We have this sort of name rivalry. I really don’t want my sister to use any of the names," Stacey revealed on Heart Breakfast radio while pregnant with Rex, now two.

"Anyone else can in the world just not her. Cause we can’t have cousins that have the same name.

"One of her children, I won’t mention which one, has got a name that I really wanted. And I said it out loud before. School boy error."

Jemma, 33, has three children, Darcy Willow, Mila Luna and Hudson James with husband Lee, 36 and one of them does in fact have one of Stacey's favourite name incorporated into their moniker.

"My sister used one of my names as a middle name of her child," Stacey further revealed on Loose Women.

"She didn't know it was one I really wanted but I plan a lot of these things out in my head before they happen and I did have a list of top five that I had before this pregnancy."

This means that her possible favourites were Willow, Luna or James are now out the question for her new daughter, who's name is yet to be announced.

Luckily it's all love between the sisters with Stacey adding, "I bear no grudge toward my sister. What. So. Ever."

"But I do get why people don't say the names they want for their children because once somebody has said it in your close circle, you can't use it.

"Some of us might take a bit longer to get pregnant than others Coleen [Nolan, fellow panellist], in which case my sister should have waited! I'm joking, I love you Jemma!'

Stacey, 32, has children Leighton and Zachary from previous relationships and shares Rex and the new baby girl with Joe.

While she’s so far kept schtum on the name of her bundle of joy, Stacey’s dad David appeared to drop a huge hint.

David shared a sweet snap of Stacey just moments after giving birth to her baby girl. He wrote on Instagram, “Proud Daddy Moment well Done to my beautiful Daughter you done amazing. (Joe was good too) How gorgeous to see number 9 on your Birthday being there was very special welcome to the world picklelet. I'm sure you will be so loved and protected.”

The post was flooded with well wishes from Stacey’s fans – including one who suggested a sweet moniker for the newborn.

They wrote underneath the snap: “Beautiful baby congratulations. Would be fun if she was called Lily…”

David appeared to agree, as he was spotted ‘liking’ the comment.
