Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have opened up about their plans for a potential sixth child.
The two television stars - Solomon rising to fame after appearing on The X Factor and Swash for his role in BBC soap Eastenders - announced they'd welcomed their fifth child in February earlier this year.
Swash spoke about adopting a child into their family on Netmums podcast, explaining it's something he and Solomon 'definitely want to do' when their youngest is a bit more grown up and when 'the time comes'.
He explained there's never been 'a distinction between [his] kids and Stacey's kids' and they're all 'one big family'.
The dad added: "As long as the house is full of love and we all love each other exactly the same."
Swash - who's mum fostered children and is a foster carer of 15 years - echoed a comment Solomon made on Instagram, joking the pair are taking 'every precaution possible to make sure' they don't conceive a sixth child.
He joked: "Before you know it you've got six!"
The dad noted he's 'pretty sure that this is it', and despite loving kids and the baby and toddler stage, they 'can't go there again'.
"It is a little bit sad but I think this will be it," he resolves.
Solomon previously spoke out about the idea of adoption and not 'lov[ing] being pregnant' in an interview with Hello! in 2019.
She said: "I have days where I think getting pregnant is the best thing we’ve ever done and then I have moments where I think I’m ruining the lovely dynamic I have with my boys.
"I don’t know if I could go through pregnancy again. If I could I would have an entire pack of children, and I’d adopt and I’d love to foster, too.
"But right now we’re just happy and feel so, so privileged to be in this position."
Both Solomon and Swash have praised one another for bringing up five children while juggling their careers at the same time.
Swash shared a sweet video of Solomon last month, branding the mum a 'superwoman'.
In a text to Solomon, the dad said: "Took this video of you before you went to work. Girls are having a sleep and can't stop watching it. Love u bub. Go and smash it today like you smash everything. Just look at you.
"You're our f***ing superwoman. I'm gonna do better with the washing I promise. You won't even know we've worn clothes."
