STACEY Solomon revealed the emotional hidden meaning behind new dog Teddy's name to fans.
The Loose Women star recently welcomed an adorable pet pooch into the family home after the death of their beloved dog Theo a few weeks ago.
The six-month-old cocker spaniel became a new tenant at Pickle Cottage to keep their other dog Peanut company.
And in a sweet message Stacey, 32, explained how they'd given the new dog its name.
She wrote: "We called him teddy because Teddy can be short for 'Theodore' so we thought it was a special tribute to Theo."
In the post titled All about Teddy the mum-of-four 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."
Explaining why he'd been rescued, she said sadly: "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."
An emotional Stacey introduced her new dog to her fans on Instagram yesterday.
Stacey, who welcomed baby Rose last autumn, beamed as she clung to the new pooch Teddy, and her other dog Peanut.
Stacey 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."
