Stacey Solomon has opened up about her unfortunate breastfeeding mishap that accidentally saw her go "naked from the boob down".

The star, 33, gave birth to her fifth child and third with husband Joe Swash, a daughter called Belle, in early February.

Posting a video to her Instagram Stories, she revealed that she hadn't thought about the practicalities of being a new mum when she got dressed on Thursday morning.

She told the camera that she thought she "looked really good" in her jumper dress, but "didn't think" about how she was going to feed her little girl while out and about.

Solomon, who was with Swash at the time, revealed that she saw the funny side of the moment and that her other half was "on lookout duty".

She explained: "I'm sat outside toddler dancing class, naked from the boob down because you can't breastfeed in a jumper dress."

The star added: "I don't know what I was thinking when I got ready this morning.

"Not one brain cell in my head went 'you're not going to be able to feed in that' I just put it on and thought, 'you look really good!'"

Solomon continued: "Belle won't wait, she was already losing it when we got in the car so I thought, 'I'm just gonna have to feed her and hope that none of the mums come over and look in.'

"Top half I look fine, I can wave from a distance but the bottom half, if they look down they will see my hairy legs under the steering wheel!"

The mother-of-five then wrote: "PSA – don't wear a jumper dress if you want to breastfeed with dignity... Luckily Joe met us for music class so he's outside on lookout duty."

Earlier this week, she revealed that she had felt like she had "smashed" motherhood after a smooth day of raising her five children.

She also shares son Rex, three, and daughter Rose, one, with Swash – and has sons Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, from previous relationships.
