Mum-of-five Stacey has confessed to feeling 'emotional' to fans as she helped four-year-old Rex get ready to start school next week.
Rex, who she shares with husband Joe Swash, will start 'big school' in September and Stacey discussed sending her youngest son off as she got his new uniform ready.
As Stacey labelled Rex's uniform with his name, she wrote on an Instagram Story: "New level unlocked big boy school. I can't even describe how emotional this makes me.
"I can't believe in just a few days Rexy will be in big school he's still my baby. And Leighton is off to seniors omg, send help."
In another Instagram Story, Stacey revealed she had bought a new clothes stand to replace Rex's old one.
She told her 6 million social media followers: "I bought my first one four years ago when Rex was a baby and I finally had to upgrade to big boy."
The emotional moments came coming for Stacey as she then discovered a snap of Rex's baby grows from when he was a tiny tot. The now four year old was born in May 2019 and is Stacey's first child with husband Joe, who she now has daughters Belle,1, and Rose, six months, with.
Sharing the throwback snap, Stacey wrote: "I've gone down a rabbit hole. It feels like yesterday I was putting babygrows on Rex's stand. This was his first ever one. I can't cope."
In the last snap, Stacey showed herself doing a job that all parents can relate to as she shared a snap of herself ironing on name badges on all of Rex's new clothes.
Stacey is a mum of five including son Rex as she has sons Leighton, 11, and Zachary, 15, from previous relationships while Joe is dad to son Harry, 16.
In another parenting confession, Stacey has confessed to something a little less relatable. The TV star admitted she kept her sons’ foreskins and put them in special memory boxes. The 33-year-old is currently the host of Sort Your Life Out, a BBC show that helps families make over their spaces and declutter.
Despite appearing on the show, Solomon has admitted that she struggles to let certain things go – much to the horror of her co-host and professional organiser Dilly Carter.
In a recent interview with The Mirror, she confessed: "I've got [the kids'] umbilical cords…I think I’ve got the boys’ foreskins somewhere." Yep, it's an odd one.
She then added: "Dilly absolutely rips me to shreds over that, she’s like, 'What is wrong with you?!'"
She also revealed where she keeps the odd keepsakes from her sons, as she said: "They've all got each individual memory boxes. So I hold on to them in their memory boxes alongside little trinkets."
