Loose Women presenter Stacey Solomon, 30, has said her long-term boyfriend Joe Swash, 38, doesn't feel "very comfortable" disciplining her sons, Leighton, eight, and Zachary, 12, when she is around, as she said she always thinks of it as her "job". The Instagram sensation said it can be a "really hard dynamic".
Joe doesn't feel very comfortable.
Stacey and Joe, who have been in a relationship since 2016, welcomed their first baby together, Rex, one, in May last year.
The former X Factor star explained how she or Joe will step in to discipline each other's children when the other is not around at the time.
Speaking on Loose Women earlier this week, Stacey shared: "That's another thing though with blended families as well, isn't it?
"Because Joe doesn't feel very comfortable disciplining my boys."

Stacey went on to open up about why she feels it is her "job" to take control of the situation if both parents are there.
"If I'm around I always think that's my job. Joe needs to have that friendly relationship.
"If he's on his own with the boys then I expect him to discipline if they do something wrong, but outside of that he doesn't."
The mother-of-three then stressed how it all depends on the household.
