Stacey Solomon has remembered the babies she miscarried by lighting a candle for Baby Loss Awareness Week, 11 days after welcoming her first daughter Rose.

The Loose Women panellist, 32, took to Instagram to send love to others who’ve experienced baby loss.

Sharing a photo of a lit flame on her story, the former X Factor star wrote: ‘Went downstairs to light a candle with the boys tonight.

‘Thinking of all of the one in four of us. Tonight and always. I’m so sorry. Lots and lots of love.’

The mum-of-four her opened up about her miscarriages earlier this year after announcing her pregnancy.

In June, Stacey shared that she and fiancé Joe Swash, 39, had been trying for a ‘little pickle’ for a while, but it wasn’t an easy road by any means.

Bravely opening up about her losses, she wrote: ‘We’ve experienced it a few times in the last year and a bit and it’s such a sinking feeling (a year is not a long time when I read so many others experiences) so many of you have been trying for years and years.

‘Keep going if you can and if you want to.

‘But honestly it’s heartbreaking. Love you all to the moon and back.’

Baby Loss Awareness Week occurred from 9-15 October this year, aiming to bring together anyone affected by pregnancy and baby loss and make them feel less alone.

Stacey and former EastEnders actor Joe welcomed baby girl Rose almost two weeks ago on Stacey’s 32nd birthday.

Breaking the news, the TV star said their family ‘cannot wait’ for the rest of their lives with her.

Stacey also has older sons Zach, 13, and Leighton, nine, as well as two-year-old Rex with fiancé Joe, while the soap star is dad to son Harry, 13, with ex Emma Sophocleous.

Little Rose remained nameless for a few days, as the couple struggled to decide on a name.

Waiting until the right one came along, they decided on Rose Opal Esmé Solomon-Swash after previously asking her fans for suggestions.

Loose Women co-stars Nadia Sawalha and Jane Moore also paid Stacey a visit this week to meet her newborn.

Nadia commented that her friend looked ‘amazing’ adding: ‘She’s so happy and Joe was just buzzing around and looking after Rex, it was really a privilege.’
