All parents can relate to Stacey Solomon's holiday photo with her sons

Sound familiar?

Stacey Solomon has posted a gorgeous photo of herself on holiday with her sons Zachary and Leighton and while all seemed picture-perfect, the Loose Women panellist revealed the lengths it took to take the snap. She wrote on Instagram: "Sunsets and silliness. When you look pretty calm and happy, but the truth is u had to grab your babies and put them into an armlock to get this picture, it's one of about a thousand!"

She asked her fans: "Is anyone else' kids totally OVER photos? I just wanted a sunset holiday memory pic and it became a WWE sequence. To rub salt into the wound I just looked at my sisters sunset pic with her two daughters and it's AMAZING."

Stacey's followers were quick to respond with similar anecdotes, with one explaining: "Stace it's a beautiful pic! Boys aren't into selfies like girls so your sister would've got it easy! I have a daughter who loves selfies but my 12 year old "Godphew" has to be bribed! A kiss cost me a doughnut at the weekend! Lol." Another replied: "My son is 12 & he hates having a picture taken. We go on holidays on Fri & he's been warned that I want lots if pictures."

The TV star home-schools her two boys

The former X Factor singer and her children are enjoying the summer off before they resume home-schooling. Stacey, 28, has previously revealed some of the hurtful comments she's received from online trolls. During an episode of Loose Women, she said: "There were a few comments after I said I was homeschooling the boys about how dumb I am and how dumb they would turn out. I already have an insecurity which is people say that I am really thick because of my accent and my personality."

But the doting mum went on to say: "I know I am not dumb and I know I am not stupid and I shouldn't be allowing anyone else to make me feel that way. I always made sure I did well in my exams, passing 13 GCSEs. In fact, I never failed an exam in my life." Regarding her children's new way of learning, Stacey added: "At the moment they are responding to it really well and they are learning a lot more in a much more positive way."
