Stacey Solomon has told how she feels “guilty” about having three children with three different fathers.

The 29-year-old is mum to 11-year-old Zachary and 7-year-old Leighton.

She announced earlier this year that she is expecting her third child – her first with her partner, Joe Swash.

Addressing the “stigma” about having children with different partners, she told Closer [via Huffington Post]: 

“I’ve definitely felt pressure from people – people I don’t know, and even people I do know.

“Even those close to me have had their opinions on it, and that can hurt.”

She added that her sons are very loved by both their fathers and Joe, who she praised as “another positive male role model” in their lives.

She added:

“And that can only be good for them. They are so content and confident and happy.”

Stacey and Joe announced in February this year that they were expecting their first child together.

The former X factor winner posted a photo of an ultrasound scan on Instagram, telling her followers how overwhelmed she was by the news.

She recently shared a glimpse into her baby shower, which looked absolutely stunning.

She captioned the photo series:

“I think this is my favourite picture ever. I know there’s a lots of baby shower spam going on right now but I can’t help myself.

“I feel on top of the world. I am so privileged to have such an incredible family and friends. I will be forever grateful for the memories from today.

“Love you all to the moon and stars and back again. Also thank you to all of the lovely messages and well wishes from everyone on here.

I’ve been trying to reply but I can’t keep up and I keep getting emotional in between.”
