Stacey Solomon looks more smitten than ever! The Loose Women panellist, who recently welcomed her third son, took to her Instagram Stories to share a lovely new photo with her newborn baby, Rex. The snap sees the proud mother look adoringly at her little tot. Alongside the post, she wrote: "I love him so much." It's been three weeks since Stacey and her boyfriend, Joe Swash, announced the arrival of their first child together. At the time, Joe wrote: "This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world. We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come. Mummy and baby are well and resting."

I haven't managed to get into one yet (IS THAT NORMAL??)"

The former X Factor finalist continued: "I've now got to the point where I can’t expect them to entertain themselves any longer. The fact that they've been so amazing and understanding has made it a lot easier for me but also meant the guilt has set in a little stronger because they're just so bloomin good. I really do need to get out of the house at some point in the near future too before I go stir crazy but honestly, the thought of having to wear actual clothes and interact with other humans is really daunting. When did anyone else leave the house after birth? Is 3 weeks too long? Send help..."
