The star admitted that three weeks after welcoming baby Belle, she had finally washed her hair!

Stacey combed her just-washed locks as she spoke to the camera, sharing why she felt "emotional" as she turned to address her little girl, as you can see in the clip below…

Although the star appears to be in good spirits, in the past she's talked openly about her experience of post-natal depression and how she struggled after welcoming two of her children.

Speaking on an episode of Bryony Gordon's podcast Mad World back in 2021, Stacey revealed that she had a tough time after the delivery of her firstborn child, Zachary.

She explained: "Even now... I have moments with Zachy where I think 'Oh, I wish I loved you from the very minute'

"Not that I didn't, I'm sure I did, I just didn't feel it, and I didn't get it. And it brings me tremendous guilt. Especially when I love my other children, when they're born and I love them, and think 'this is amazing'... I immediately feel like 'wow, I was terrible when I had Zack'."

The former X Factor contestant added: "At least it made me prepared for every other time I've given birth, I was prepared to feel that way. And I knew it would pass. Which is just the most comforting feeling."
