Stacey Solomon explains why she leaves Joe Swash's son out of family photos

Stacey Solomon explains why she leaves Joe Swash's son out of family photos

Stacey has faced backlash after leaving her stepson out of Instagram post of her 'whole world'

It can be difficult to scroll through Instagram without seeing a post from Stacey Solomon and her adorable army of ‘little pickles’.

But she’s been the target of some confusion from fans for ‘missing out’ an important person from her social media snaps.

Stacey, 33, has been married to former EastEnders star Joe Swash, 41, since their gorgeous ceremony at home (Pickle Cottage, obvs) last July.

Together they share son Rex, three, Rose, one, and baby daughter Belle, born in February this year.

And the 33-year-old, who rose to fame following her appearance The X Factor in 2009, is also mum to Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, from previous relationships.

Joe is also dad to son Harry, 16, who he shares with ex Emma Sophocleous.

However, the teen very rarely appears on social media.

Stacey Solomon recently posted the snap with her 'whole world'.

People have slammed Stacey for not including Harry in a family pic after she recently posted a cute mirror selfie with her ‘whole world’.

After a busy working week, the lovable mum wrote on Instagram: “So happy to be back from Scotland. Had a lovely lazy morning with this lot!”

All dressed up to celebrate one of her sisters’ birthdays, Stacey shared the sweetest snaps of the younger children as well as some lovely group photos of the family.

However, one user commented: “Is it just me or does Joe’s other boy never in photos.”

Another wrote: “Was thinking the same thing.”

While a third added: “I always think that, he’s never on any of the family photos.”

Stacey and Joe got married in July 2022.

It seems as though there is a very good reason for this as Stacey has previously spoken about respecting Harry’s mum’s wishes.

In 2019, Stacey opened up on her Instagram Stories, saying: “I get these comments quite a lot, asking about all of our children in my photos.

“Unfortunately it’s not something I’m able to do, otherwise I’d do it all the time. All the kids are a massive part of our lives, obviously, and we love them all equally and adore them and, behind the scenes, they’re very much on every stocking, in every book, in every photo.

“But publicly that’s not something that I can do and I totally respect that. We respect everyone’s wishes, we’re a blended family and sometimes that’s a bit more complicated than it seems.”

Fans have also come to her defence, with one writing: “His mother doesn’t want him in photos so Stacey respects that.”

Joe does occasionally feature Harry on his Instagram, such as a heart-warming video of the pair ice skating back in December 2021.
