The 31-year-old had previously revealed on Instagram that her two eldest sons, Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight, had asked to stay with their respective fathers for longer than initially intended.
The Loose Women panellist wrote on her Instagram story: "I'm really missing the big pickles today. They wanted to stay longer at their dads and because they are doing school from home they can.
"I do get sad when they don't want to come home, but I know how happy it will make their dads and I never want to stop them from having the chance to make memories with their family.
"But oh my gosh I miss them. It's lovely for a couple of days, less mess, less noise, but then the house just feels so empty and Rex looks for them everywhere."
Responding to her comments, one troll told Stacey: "It must be very sad having three different dads for your boys. Always apart.
"Oh well, I suppose you are happy about it."
But Stacey wasn't about to take that sort of snide remark lying down.
Taking a screenshot of the cruel comments, Stacey replied: "Whoa there Wilma, it's far too early for that kind of judgement and of course I am happy about it!
"They are the best thing that ever happened to me, no matter how they happened to me."
She added in a caption: "Never let anyone make you feel like you're not good enough just because things happened to work out differently from the 'norm'.
"Keep doing you the best way you know how. Unconditional love from anywhere in different shapes and sizes is all they'll ever need."
Stacey has been happily dating presenter Joe Swash, with the 38-year-old proposing to Stacey on Christmas Eve after four years together.
And as a thoughtful gift, Joe gifted Stacey some of the white flowers used in his romantic woodland proposal.
"So this just got delivered on the doorstop," she wrote. "Joe bought some of the flowers from the florist that put the flowers up for our engagement so that I could have a piece of the day forever."
