Stacey Solomon praises eldest son in heartwarming tribute calling him a ‘third parent’

Stacey Solomon praises eldest son in heartwarming tribute calling him a ‘third parent’

The mum-of-five gushed about how much her eldest son Zach helps out with the kids.

Stacey Solomon shared a wonderful tribute to her eldest son for helping her out with his siblings.

The mum-of-five, 33, recently enjoyed a family holiday in Turkey and she’s kept her fans up to date with a bunch of new snaps.

In a post shared late on Monday (14 August), the former X Factor contestant took some time to highlight how often her eldest child lends a helping hand, especially since he’s only 15 and is two and a bit years younger than his mum when she had him.

“Biggest Brother Love,” the post begins. “Just had to share this because it really makes me so proud. Me and Joe were watching through these videos on the way home & saying how much harder holidays would be without Zach!"

She continue: “He’s like a third parent who’s much more fun than us, nothing is ever too much, and we have a lot to contend with but he takes it all in his stride.”

Stacey was only 20-years-old when she competed on The X Factor in 2009. Just two years earlier, she gave birth to her son aged 18.

They went on a family holiday to a resort in Turkey.

“It’s honestly hard to believe that I had Zach just two years older than he is now & he’s a better person than I ever was at that age! Zach Your love and time for your brothers and sisters is just our favourite thing to watch. Thank you for everything.”

"Before anyone starts. We love all of my children the same amount. But at different times in our lives they all show their unique, special personalities & it just is so amazing to see & celebrate."

Stacey is also mum to Leighton, 11, Rex, four, Rose, one, and five-month old Belle and Joe is dad to Harry, 16, from previous relationships.

Stacey and Joe have six kids between them.

The Loose Women star kept the details of the holiday under wraps due to privacy, but she eventually revealed the deets just before heading home.

Stacey wrote on Instagram: “Our last day in paradise… The last ten days have been heaven and I don’t want it all to end. Spending time with my family is just the best thing in world. And this place was just MAGICAL.

“Thank you for the memories @regnumcarya too the moon and back family. Ad we got a discount from our travel agent @trendingtravel on this hotel.”
