Stacey Solomon admits she and husband Joe Swash ‘struggle to be good parents’

Stacey Solomon talks about running off ‘mum guilt’

Stacey Solomon has candidly revealed that she is “struggling” to be a good parent to the five kids she already has, and is now taking “every precaution” to make sure she doesn’t fall pregnant again.

The Loose Women star made the candid disclosure to her 5.7 million Instagram followers as she dyed her hair live online.

“We could not have any more kids,” she declared adamantly, explaining: “At this point we are struggling to say the least to be good parents, and try and work and do everything else in between.”

While she gave the idea a defiant “No” for “right now”, she admitted that she’d consider fostering further children when their brood has grown up and moved out of their Essex home, Pickle Cottage.

Explaining that she and Joe had a heart-to-heart during a romantic holiday, she explained they’d feared the thought of living alone together, musing: “Oh god, one day this will be us, just us two!”

Joe’s mum is a foster carer, and Stacey is keen to follow in her footsteps in the future, explaining: “Not right now [but] when we are older and all the kids are grown up and moved out, that would be our dream.”

She continued: “We’ve got such a massive family – the house is never quiet and we are never on our own.

“And we did say, ‘Oh it will be sad when it’s just us two and all the kids are gone’, so I think I would love to [foster].”

Stacey had been responding to queries by fans who thought that, as she and Joe were enjoying a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it mini break together for just 36 hours, that she might fall pregnant again.

She was quick to correct them, exclaiming: “For those of you messaging me saying ‘Is this baby number six?’, no, no no! Don’t worry, we’re taking every precaution possible to make sure that doesn’t happen!”

Stacey already has sons Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, from previous relationships, while she shares four-year-old son Rex, and daughters Rose, 22 months, and Belle, five months, with husband Joe.

Meanwhile, Joe also has a son from a previous relationship, 16-year-old Harry, whose mum is Emma Sophocleous.

Though Stacey acknowledges the house is often extremely busy, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

The loved-up Loose Women star was making the most of her break with Joe in a gap from her hectic work commitments, but her sons weren’t too keen on seeing the couple kiss.

Stacey later joked on camera that they’d been embarrassed, confronting the pair with the words: “You disgust me!”

The couple had first met way back in 2010 when former X Factor star Stacey on I’m A Celebrity…. Get Me Out Of Here!

She’d ended up winning the series that year, while former EastEnders star Joe had been presenting the spin-off show when he first came into contact with the Queen of the Jungle.

12 years on, they married in a stunning ceremony surrounded by their loved ones at Pickle Cottage.
