Former I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! Joe Swash has revealed that he and his wife Stacey Solomon are planning to foster a child once their kids grow up.

The couple welcomed their third child together earlier this year, while Stacey has two older sons from a previous relationship. Joe also has a son from a previous relationship.

Although they've ruled out having any more biological children together, Joe has said that he and Stacey do want to open up their home to a child in need when the time is right.

Recently speaking on The Netmums Podcast, the ex-EastEnders actor explained: "Fostering is something that me and Stacey have talked about and would love to do. We'd love to foster, we'd love to give something back, you know?

"It is something that we definitely want to do, when our kids get old enough that they're not as reliant on us.

"Touch wood, we’re both healthy enough and fit enough. We'll have to wait until the time comes, but we're open to the option."

Joe went on to reveal how fostering is something he's been passionate about for a while because his mum has been a foster carer for 15 years.

"My mum sort of knew she had so much more to give and so much more love to give. And there are so many kids out there that really need that love and support," he said.

"So, we were really behind my mum. We are super proud of what she's done and what she's achieved. She’s an incredible, strong, independent woman. We’re super proud of her."

Joe also sweetly shared how he doesn't make a "distinction" between his kids and Stacey's kids, adding: "They’re all our kids. We’re just one big family and we all love each other, that’s the most important thing."
