Stacey Solomon inundated with support as she marks family milestone

Stacey Solomon is a doting mum to five children and on Friday, she and Joe Swash treated the children to their first foreign holiday since the pandemic, as well as the first for Rose and Belle.

The Loose Women star shared a carousel of images showing the family posing together at Heathrow Airport, before they posed together again once their reached their destination of Abu Dhabi. There was even a sweet image of young Rex in the cockpit of the plane alongside the captain. The youngster looked to enjoy his time in the cabin, with Stacey even joking he'd fly them "home".

In her caption, the singer posted: "Here We Go. Off on our very first adventure together… Rose & Belle's first plane ride and ours as a family since before covid when Rex was a few months old.

"We are all so excited to make some special memories. I think I was most nervous about the journey there but we've made it safe & sound and still sane."

She concluded: "A massive thank you to the lovely passengers who were so chatty & sweet to us & the kids and also thank you to kindest air stewards who played with Rex & Rose so nicely & made them feel so comfortable @etihad you have the most amazing staff and captain Rexy can't wait to fly us home."

Stacey always makes sure to keep her fans updated on her adventures, and she stunned them earlier in the week when Rose helped look after her baby sister, Belle.

In a cute video, one-year-old Rose had the time of her life with Belle as Stacey watched one. Belle was strapped into a comfy looking egg-shaped bouncy chair with Rose stroking her head and then placing the dummy in her mouth.

Stacey has previously revealed how the boys help dress their younger siblings.

Speaking to Rob Beckett and Josh Widdecombe on their podcast Parenting Hell, she said of her sons Zachary and Leighton: "They are amazing boys. Where there is that big age gap they will help me. So Zac will get Rex dressed, sometimes Leighton will get Rose dressed and they will help me get them all into the car. They are incredible kids to be fair. I am lucky with that."

Stacey even jested: "They are like my childcare! My live-in nanny."
