Stacey Solomon had easy birth

Stacey Solomon says giving birth was like just 'popping out for the day'.
The 22-year-old reality TV star and her fiance Aaron Barham welcomed son Leighton into the world on 5 May and Stacey was amazed by how 'easy' her labour was this time round.
Stacey - who also has four-year-old Zach from a previous relationship - said: 'I know I've lost a lot of weight already, but with Leighton they told me my placenta weighed more than he did - he was 7lbs 7oz - so, when he was born, I lost about a stone almost immediately. It was a really easy labour - I felt like I'd popped out for the day and came home with a baby!'
Since giving birth, Stacey has been 'craving' healthy food and vegetables so has had no problems shedding the weight she gained in her pregnancy.
She told the new issue of Closer magazine: 'I love spinach. I really crave it and eat it nearly every day, so that's really helped with losing my baby weight. Anything green and I'll wolf it down!
'When I was pregnant with Zach, I gained 3st and it took me a lot longer to lose it, too, but I don't know why.'
'I love food too much to ever deprive myself and I hate seeing new mums obsess over dieting and exercise after giving birth. It's not the most important thing - especially when you have a baby to take care of. I'm only 22, I've got a good metabolism and I'm eating healthily. I've still got a bit of a mum tum, which I'd like to tone up, and my hips are quite wide, but it doesn't bother me. I like my body. It does the job!'
