Stacey took to Instagram to update fans on her postpartum recovery in a searingly honest post, but she admitted that motherhood hadn’t always been smooth sailing.
Stacey Solomon shared an update with fans after the birth of her baby girl, Rose Opal Esmè Solomon-Swash.
The Loose Women panellist, 32, posted a video to her Instagram stories after allowing followers to ask her questions.
Stacey said she was ‘really happy’, but admitted she hadn’t felt the same way after the birth of her other children.
“I feel really happy, which is so nice, but it also makes me feel a little bit guilty,” Stacey admitted.
“I haven’t always been happy after I’ve given birth.”
Despite her previous struggles with motherhood, Stacey confessed that she was elated following Rose’s birth.
“I feel like I’ve got that feeling that everyone talks about where you’re in a bubble and nothing else matters.”
Rose is Stacey’s fourth child.
She has two children from previous relationships, 13 year old Zachary and eight year old Leighton.
The star shares one other child, Rex Toby Francis Swash, with current fiancé Joe Swash.
Joe and Stacey first met in 2010 on the set for I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!, where Stacey was victorious and Joe hosted the spin-off show, Extra Camp.
It wasn’t until 2016, however, that the pair finally got together and made their relationship public.
The couple announced their engagement in December 2020 and planned to get married in the summer of 2021, but have since postponed their wedding to July 2022.
Stacey shared that she was expecting Rose in June 2021, after suffering a number of miscarraiges.
Posting a picture of a negative pregnancy test earlier this year, Stacey said: “For a really long time we have been trying for another pickle.”
“It didn’t work out and this was our news quite a few times… We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys. It is our biggest privilege in life and we are so grateful to be parents so we stopped trying and counted ourselves so so so blessed already…”
Joe and Stacey welcomed Rose to their family on 4 October 2021, which coincided with Stacey’s 32nd birthday.
