Loose Women star Stacey Solomon and ex-EastEnders actor Joe Swash share six children between them. Their youngest, a daughter named Belle, turned one-year-old this month.
Stacey Solomon was reduced to tears as she admired the first birthday cake she made for her youngest child – and as her husband told her they would have no more.
The 34-year-old Loose Women star is proud wife of former EastEnders actor husband Joe Swash, 41, and is matriarch of their blended family. The TV star has a 15-year-old son named Zachary who she shares with ex-boyfriend Dean Cox, and an 11-year-old son named Leighton who she shares with ex-fiancé Aaron Barnham.
Together with Joe, she is also the mother of four-year-old son Rex, two-year-old daughter Rose, and youngest daughter Belle, who turned one this week. Joe also has a 16-year-old son of his own, named Harry, from a previous relationship with ex-fiancée Emma Sophocleous. Stacey and Joe celebrated Belle’s first birthday – with the talk show star making a heart shaped cake for her youngest child. She proudly showed off the results of her baking on social media.
Sharing a video on Instagram, Stacey wrote: “Belle’s 1st Birthday Cake. Made by mummy, with so much love beautiful Belle. Honestly I’ve never felt so emotional making a cake. I’ve made every single one of my baby’s first birthday cakes. And if Joes reaction at the end is anything to go by this is probably the last one, why does it all go so so quickly?”
The video showed her mixing the cake ingredients together and adding the mix to a baking tin. She then cooked the cake, allowed it to cool, the decorated it with pink icing and added Belle’s name to the top. The video ended with Stacey wiping away tears while Joe could be hears saying: “There you go. One years old. Well done, mum. We can’t have any more kids. I can’t tell people I’ve got seven kids!”
Stacey went on to explain to her fans and social media followers that she was battling her emotions as she prepared to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday. She wrote in an Instagram Stories post: “Feeling a bit emotional. I always make the kids first birthday cake. And knowing this might be my last child’s first birthday cake is actually making me cry. I started yesterday and I’m just finishing off today. I actually don’t want it to end.”
Another post had a caption stating: “I think this is my best cake yet. I feel like my ping bags new this could be the last one. Especially if Joe’s reaction at the end of this is anything to go by.” Joe and Stacey seem to have been arguing over the possibility of more children in recent weeks. Last month, Joe made Stacey feel broody as he cradled the baby of one of his siblings. While Stacey hinted she did want to have more children when she was hosting an online Q&A with fans.
