Stacey Solomon proudly showed off her new born baby Leighton this week, as she spoke of her speedy delivery.

The I’m A Celebrity... winner, who posed for a Sun newspaper photo shoot, gave her fans their first glimpse of the youngster on Tuesday.

Speaking to the Sun, she said Leighton arrived after a relatively swift two and a half hour labour.

“I was back home and in my own bed that evening,” she said. “It was as if I’d just gone to the shops and come back with a baby.’

Stacey has previously spoken of the excruciating 37 hours it took for her first child, Zachary, to be born.

The singer gave birth to 7lbs 7oz Leighton at Queen’s Hospital in Romford, at 12:30pm on May 5.
