Stacey Solomon has revealed there’s a hidden tribute to her late dog Theo in the name of her new pet puppy. 

The Loose Women host announced in December that Theo had died over Christmas leaving her ‘utterly heartbroken’.

However, the family now have a new pet to shower with love and affection as Stacey and fiance Joe Swash recently adopted a rescue dog.

They’ve named the working Teddy and, apparently, it’s actually a tribute to his big brother Theo.

Answering questions about the pup, a working Cocker Spaniel, in her Instagram stories, Stacey revealed: ‘We called him teddy because Teddy can be short for “Theodore” so we thought it was a special tribute to Theo.’

She added: ‘We didn’t pick him out but we said we would take any dog suitable for young children and another dog.

‘We didn’t mind what breed, colour, coat anything as long as he would be happy and it was right. And along came Teddy.

‘I have no idea why or how anyone could not want him or he wouldn’t be “good” enough. But apparently he is no where near the size he should be for his breed and that was one of the main reasons why he wasn’t kept by the breeder [sic].’

Stacey, 32, introduced Teddy to the world on Monday alongside a cute photo of her cradling the pooch as well as her other dog Peanut at her home named Pickle Cottage.

The TV presenter wrote: ‘Welcome Home Teddy. Last night we rescued a dog. But today I’m not sure who has rescued who.

‘We miss you so much Theo. I hope you’re looking down from heaven smiling, knowing that peanut will no longer be so very lonely and that a doggy who really needed a family now has one. To the moon and back, always.’

It’s light relief for the Solomon-Swash family who had a difficult Christmas mourning Theo’s death.

Stacey explained that Theo, who she had for 11 years, died in her arms surrounded by the family, including their four children.

‘Our hearts are utterly broken. She was just the best dog in the world who adored the boys and Rose. I can’t even begin to explain how lost I feel without her,’ she said.

Showing clips of the Pomeranian snuggled in bed, lying in the grass and playing with the kids, Stacey added that she was ‘grateful to have filmed so many beautiful memories’.
