Nadia Sawalha slammed by fans over Stacey Solomon baby announcement

Some fans accused Nadia Sawalha of stealingStacey Solomon’s thunder after she announced the news of her daughter's birth.

Stacey, 32, gave birth to a baby girl on October 4, but didn’t announce the news to her 4.7 million followers until October 6. She gave birth to her daughter on her 32nd birthday and described her arrival as the best gift.

Loose Women star Nadia, who is close friends with Stacey, also revealed the happy news of the little girl's birth on her Instagram, soon after Stacey posted the birth announcement.

However, for some fans, Nadia's post showed up before Stacey's on their feeds.

Sharing a photo of Stacey at her baby shower with fiance Joe Swash, Nadia wrote: “Awwwwww…..she’s here !!! Congratulations @staceysolomon and @realjoeswashy!! The baby girl you both longed for is in your arms ! And on your birthday too Stace !!”

“Thrilled to bits for you all ! Can’t wait for a snuggle and a sniff of that milky neck !!! Big hugs and kisses to you your boys , and now your DAUGHTER TOO ! Welcome to the world little one,” Nadia continued.

While many people were over the moon to hear that Stacey had given birth, some criticised Nadia for sharing the news so soon.

One person commented on her Instagram post: “Stacey’s job to announce it surely,” as someone else wrote: “Aww she’s not announced it herself yet.”

A third person said: “Faaaaarrrrr too soon to post this in my opinion… it was within minutes that you told everybody the news…to the point that your story came before staceys so I heard it from you!!! Not nice, especially due to the absolutely beautiful videos she showed of the birth that she has shared with everybody.”

Stacey shared beautiful videos documenting her daughter's birth at home at Pickle Cottage.

Alongside a photo of her daughter in an adorable pink floral print babygrow, the 32 year old wrote: “She’s Here. Born at Pickle Cottage on mummy’s birthday. Our little girl… Happy birthday my darling daughter… We all love you more than you could ever imagine.

"Your brothers, your daddy and I are so in love. Thank you for the most incredible 9 months. Now we cannot wait for the rest of our lives with you.”

Stacey and Joe have since been inundated with congratulations from their family, friends and fans.

Stacey also shared a sweet update to her Loose Women family after welcoming her fourth child.

The star shared a gorgeous snap of herself with her little girl resting on her chest as presenter Christine Lampard, 42, read out her message on Wednesday’s show.

In her update, the star described her baby as "strong-minded" and said she can't wait to give her "aunties" cuddles.

Christine explained: "Stacey says: 'Girls, we love you, missing you all so much but loving these cuddles so much, too. She's already a strong-minded, wilful woman just like her aunties. She can't wait to cuddle you all.'

"So yes, a very happy household there…"
