On Tuesday it was announced that Loose Women star Stacey Solomon had welcomed her fourth baby on her 32nd birthday, at her family home in Essex.
The star posted to her 5 million followers that she and partner Joe Swash had welcomed their little girl at Pickle Cottage where they live with their four combined children.
But Stacey isn't the first celeb who has opted for a home birth as opposed to checking into a maternity ward, former The Only Way is Essex star turned star of The Mummy Diaries Samantha Faiers also welcomed her second child at home back in 2017.
Sam Faiers had complications during her first home birth with baby Paul, but successfully gave birth to daughter Rosie at home and took to Instagram a few months later to share her home birthing tips with her followers.
The star shared: "I had such an amazing home birth with Rosie. The most precious indescribable time of your life, bringing a baby into the world."
Stacey's fellow Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha has also shared her experience of a home birth.
Nadia's two daughters, who are 18 and 14, both were born at the family home. Speaking on her YouTube channel, Nadia shared that the first birth was "very difficult".
She continued: "When she landed on the floor there was a beat when neither of us knew if she was alive", explaining "If I had gone into hospital with this birth, I would have had a cesarean and I did not want that".
Nadia compared the birth of her second daughter, stating: "Ironically, Kiki's birth was one of the most heartwarmingly complete sharing experiences I have had in my life, that we couldn’t have had in hospital".
Her Majesty also gave birth at home – giving birth to all four of her children in the comfort of the royal palaces. Queen Elizabeth II was also the first monarch in history to deliver a baby without the Home Secretary present, and also the first to have her husband accompany her at childbirth.
The Queen's firstborn, and heir to the throne Charles was born via a C-section in the Buhl Room at Buckingham Palace. The room, which was usually used as a guest room, was converted into a 'mini hospital' whilst The Queen endured a 30 hour labour pre caesarean.
Her Royal Highness went on to welcome Anne at Clarence House, and all three sons at Buckingham Palace.
Other famous mums who chose home births include Davina McCall, who gave birth to all three of her teenage children at home with the same midwife!
The TV presenter revealed she had a "totally natural birth" after giving birth to her first born back in 2001.
On her second birth, Davina shared: "I was on the loo, to labour for a bit, because the loo’s a comfortable place.
"I had to crawl on all fours to the pool because the head was literally crowning. Tilly was born minutes later. It was mega."
