Loose Women stars share adorable photos of themselves meeting Stacey Solomon’s baby son: ‘Magical!’

Stacey Solomon has shared a sweet snap of her Loose Women co-stars meeting her newborn son for the first time.

Stacey gave birth to her son, reportedly called Rex, on May 23 – her first child with partner Joe Swash, 37.

And her Loose Women ‘aunties’ couldn’t wait to meet him. Nadia Sawalha and Jane Moore popped round to Stacey’s house while she is on maternity leave from the ITV show.

As Nadia, 54, rocked the baby in her arms looking thrilled, Stacey wrote on her Instagram stories: ‘Look who’s aunties came to visit.

‘He loved his cuddles and mummy loved the catch up.’

Jane also got in on the action and was pictured grinning and cradling the baby. Stacey wrote, “Aunts @janepmoore cuddles… He has no idea how loved he is!”

Nadia has also shared the pictures on her own Instagram account, alongside a caption revealing how special it was to meet Stacey’s son.

She wrote, ‘ @janepmoore and I got to hold @staceysolomon and @realjoeswashy beautiful baby boy this afternoon and it was magical !! He is beyond beautiful ! And we’re so proud of Stacy!

‘We can all remember those early days and how tough they are so it was lovely to shoot the breeze have a gossip and tell her how great she’s doing ! And of course to tell baba that his loose aunties are going to spoil him rotten !!’

Stacey, 29, has always been candid about how pregnancy affected her body – before and after – and often shares ‘real’ pictures on Instagram.

She was praised for posting a picture of herself straight after giving birth, looking exhausted (but happy) and wearing a blood spattered gown.

Today is a smiley day 😬 it’s been an interesting week. But it feels like the fog is lifting and I’m coming out of the fuzz. I’m so grateful to have our baby boy with us and be surrounded by my incredible family – my biggest privilege. But it doesn’t mean it’s been all rosey and glossy. Hormone surges + really struggling to breastfeed + no sleep what so ever + engorged boobs + cracked nipples + absolutely anything as minuscule as somebody kissing my babies head = total meltdown. I’ve found myself spontaneously uncontrollably sobbing into my mums arms, at least twice every day. Then I feel guilty that I’m not “enjoying every second” like everyone tells you too because it passes by so quickly (and it does, my eldest is 11 and I feel like I just blinked and that happened). But sometimes I’m just not in control of my emotions, and I can’t feel guilty about having sad points it’s counter productive. I’m really feeling happy today which is amazing, but I’m ready to accept any sobbing or sadness that sneaks up on me at any point. If it doesn’t hallelujah, but if it does I’m no less of a mother for feeling that way. And to anyone else feeling or who has felt that way, don’t ever let those feelings make you feel that you weren’t good enough, you were and you are. Its ok not to be ok. Also I want to say thank you to the amazing NHS services that we have received over the last 7 days… Queens Hospital Romford, all of the nurses, midwives and paediatricians. Our community midwives, and the breastfeeding specialist who literally MILKED me for hours trying to bring my milk down from under my chest and armpits, and the Perinatal Parent Infant Mental Health Services in our area who have been so attentive and always there if we need them. 💙 Thinking of all of those who don’t have a support system around them. If you need someone to talk to there are people out there… please don’t hesitate to reach out. @pandas_uk @mindcharity 💙

‘I didn’t breastfeed Leighton and I don’t remember 11 years ago with Zach so it came as a bit of a shock to me when my feeding experience wasn’t blissful breast time and expressing pints of milk in between.

‘We still haven’t mastered it yet and we might never master it – that’s ok too.

Stacey and Joe haven’t revealed the name of their baby yet but the former X Factor star let slip the name ‘Rexi’ in a recent Instagram video.
