Stacey Solomon's attempt to take passport photo of baby Belle proves hilarious

Stacey Solomon shared a brilliantly relatable newborn mum stress on Tuesday as she struggled to get her baby daughter Belle’s passport photo taken.

The Loose Women presenter, 33, announced she had welcomed her new little girl in a home birth on February 11, making her a mum of five.

She and partner Joe Swash, 40, are also doting parents to three-year-old son Rex and one-year-old daughter Rose., while Stacey is mum to Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, from previous relationships.

Joe also has 15-year-old son Harry, who he shares with former partner Emma Sophocleous.

Bringing her 5.6 million Instagram followers with her through the day-to-day business of parenting an expanding brood and being mum to a new baby all over again, Stacey has already offered pictures, weigh-ins and chatted about breastfeeding.

She’s also shared her woe over trying – and she reckoned, failing – to achieve a ‘newborn fresh’ bun hairstyle.

However, the recent passport photo debacle was perhaps the most hilarious and heart-warming of all.

Posting a clip from inside a photobooth to her Instagram stories, Stacey was heard laughing as she said: ‘Send help – I’m trying to get Belle’s passport picture done. It’s not going well.’

The camera panned between to photo options, one which showed her new daughter screaming.

Stacey added in the caption: ‘I am actually full-on sweating in this booth. It’s IMPOSSIBLE.’

‘And we have her passport appointment tomorrow. Send help,’ she added, alongside laugh-crying emoji.

Just a few hours later though, the former X Factor singer returned to social media to reveal the solution she had found to the problem – and in a wholesome twist, it was her dad.

‘Thank goodness for Dave,’ she wrote in the caption of a gorgeous photo of her dad with a camera around his neck, smiling down at his newest grandchild.

‘I didn’t want to take it at home because I thought it would be easier to do in the post office where they can check it. I was wrong.’

The TV star had previously asked for help from the social media hive mind as she tried to attempt a bun for her hair.

‘Thought I’d scrape my hair back into a bun today because I keep seeing people doing it. I seen Molly-Mae do it and she looks so beautiful, I call it newborn fresh.

‘Like, you’ve got a newborn so you chuck it into a bun and just look really pretty, natural, and it pulls all your face back.’

The star went on to say that when she attempted to pull it off, she looked like Matilda’s Miss Trunchbull and questioned: ‘Why? Why do I not look like newborn fresh, like Molly?’

‘Why doesn’t it suit me? Is it my face? I just need to know,’ she pondered further.

Stacey then captured the footage: ‘Can you send me a newborn slick hair tutorial please @mollymae?’

Molly has also recently became mum to a daughter, with her little girl Bambi who she shares with partner and Love Island co-star Tommy Fury.
