Stacey Solomon melts hearts with honest post sharing her fears

Stacey Solomon has written an honest post about being a mum.

Loose Women legend Stacey Solomon has written an honest post about being a mum to three children – one being a newborn.

The 29 year old took to Instagram to share a touching story about her fears son Leighton, seven, would potentially feel left out at the arrival of little Rex – as he would no longer be the baby in the family.

But Stacey was left pleasantly surprised at just how much her young son loves the little tot, as she expressed her pride in a sweet post

Rex you have no idea how much your brother loves you,” she wrote.

“I definitely worried about Leighton feeling pushed out when I got pregnant with Rex

He’s been the baby of the family for so long and he’s thoroughly enjoyed it. Turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about!

He’s taken the role of big brother in his stride and it actually hurts my heart (in a nice way)!

“Today I had to go into town to finish a special project I am involved in for one of my favourite charities and a person very close to my heart.

Leighton decided he wanted to come with and help me look after Rex because at the moment I can’t be apart from him.

And oh my goodness baby boy (you’ll always be my baby, even when it gets really embarrassing) I couldn’t have had better help. I love you to the moon and back and I know how lucky I am to have you.”

Last week Stacey opened up on a different side to motherhood, as she candidly admitted she worries her boobs will “explode”.

She took to social media to reveal that having a newborn was beginning to take its toll in an honest Instagram snap.

She wrote: “Joe totally stole my baby last night to let me get some sleep and I think my boobs are going to explode.”
