Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have finally met baby Rex! Stacey Solomon brought her adorable young son on Loose Women on Wednesday, and Holly and Phil cooed over the four-month-old during a video link for the show. The This Morning presenters thought little Rex was just beautiful as he made his second ever television appearance. Phil said: "Can we have a close-up of that baby please? We haven't had enough of the baby, we need a close-up!" Holly gushed: "He is so cute... Oh my gosh, he's just amazing! Congratulations!" She added: "We need more babies, just everywhere! They're the best."

Chatting about their own 'loose royal baby', Andrea McLean said: "Stacey is back and she's brought baby Rex with her! Thank you for bringing in our mascot, how are you feeling today?" Stacey replied: "Do you know what? I'm really excited but I'm a little bit nervous to be back, it's been a while!" Fans of the show were also delighted to see Rex, with one writing: "Yay! Love @StaceySolomon and baby Rex, love watching their lives on insta."

Rex appeared on Loose Women

Stacey regularly opens up about motherhood with a newborn baby on Instagram, and recently opened up about feeding little Rex, explaining: "I'm feeling very proud of myself. I have somehow trained my arm to bend in ways that I never thought possible so I can feed Rex. I can use my right arm. I can online shop, I can change the TV channel, the world's my oyster!" She captioned the post: "The way his hand creeps up as if to say 'I can do it better Mum!'"

She added to Rex: "You are so lucky, little man."
