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.
Fans including other celebrities called it ‘powerful’ and ‘totally beautiful’.
Stacey, who has two sons from a previous relationship, has also opened up about the struggles of breast feeding
Uploading a picture of herself looking down the lens of the camera while the newborn fed, she said, ‘Trying to smile. This is my face every time he latches on.
‘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.
