Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash first met on the set for ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ in 2016 – the year that she was crowned Queen of the Jungle. The 38-year-old former ‘EastEnders’ actor started dating the singer after they bonded on ITV hits spin-off show ‘Extra Camp’. Recently, the pair have spoken out about their family life and how they worked to accommodate each other’s children from previous relationships. Before the birth of their son Rex, the ‘Loose Women’ star, 30, confessed that she had no plans to have any more children.
Solomon, who rose to fame on ‘The X Factor’, admitted that if she had any more children she would worry that her sons would feel left out.
The singer feared it might be “difficult” for Zachary, who she had with childhood sweetheart Dean Cox, and Leighton, with her ex-fiance Aaron Barnham.
She said: “You worry about, 'If the father of my next child lives with me, do the other kids then feel bad about being left out?' It's a difficult dynamic.”
Solomon felt there was a stigma attached to having children with different partners and was concerned that a third would lead to further scrutiny.
She told the Mirror in 2017: “A lot of people make you feel bad about having different children to different people.
“It doesn't seem that bad, but it's hard for people to digest and they think it's unfair on the kids."
