Stacey Solomon praises Joe Swash for dating her when she had two kids

Stacey Solomon has opened up about her relationship with Joe Swash

Stacey Solomon has praised Joe Swash for being so caring at the start of their relationship.

Solomon was a mum of two when she met the presenter, but that didn’t dampen their relationship.

The presenter said Joe has become an incredible role model for her boys and their other children.

Solomon said Joe Swash was so positive about the boys when they started dating.

“I just can’t. Keep seeing this trend. I’m not usually a trend girl but this one really speaks to my heart… I cry every time I see someone’s,” Solomon said, referring to the dating someone with kids trend.

She decided to join in on the trend and make her own video, but it reduced her to tears.

“I think it just reminded me how small the boys were when I met Joe & what a massive positive, special influence Joe’s been on their lives,” she wrote.

Stacey posted videos of her boys and Joe together but said she doesn’t have as many now that her boys are older.

She praised Joe for being such a huge inspiration and an incredible influence on her sons, Zachary and Leighton.

“Also now they’re teenagers we don’t get as many videos which also made me cry,” she wrote.

The mum-of-five added, “You’re the best male role model our boys could wish for. We are so lucky to have found you. To the moon and stars and back again bub. No steps, No halves, just family.”

Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon started dating in 2016 after they met on ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’.

The pair have three children together, daughters Belle and Rose, and son Rex.

Joe is also a dad to son Harry and stepdad to Stacey’s sons Zachary and Leighton.
