Stacey Solomon is adjusting well to life as a new mother, especially since she has an adorable helping hand from her middle son, Leighton. The Loose Women panellist revealed the special bond the seven-year-old has already formed with his baby brother Rex, who was born in May, in a sweet Instagram post, in which she paid a special tribute to her "baby boy".
Sharing an adorable image of Leighton carrying Rex in a baby carrier, Stacey gushed; "Rex you have no idea how much your brother loves you. I definitely worried about Leighton feeling pushed out when I got pregnant with Rex. He's been the baby of the family for so long and he's thoroughly enjoyed it. Turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about! He's taken the role of big brother in his stride and it actually hurts my heart (in a nice way)!"
How cute is this?
Revealing Leighton insisted on accompanying her and Rex to a special photoshoot so he could keep a watchful eye over his younger sibling, Stacey added: "Today I had to go into town to finish a special project I am involved in for one of my favourite charities and a person very close to my heart. Leighton decided he wanted to come with and help me look after Rex because at the moment I can't be apart from him. And oh my goodness baby boy (you'll always be my baby, even when it gets really embarrassing) I couldn't have had better help. I love you to the moon and back and I know how lucky I am to have you."

Stacey's followers were quick to praise her, with many agreeing that Leighton's relationship with Rex isn't surprising considering the "role model" they have for a mum. One fan said: "Your boys are so awesome cos they had a wonderful role model babe." Another added: "He was so amazing and an absolute credit to you. Made my heart burst!!!!" While a third said: "Please be proud of yourself and not just your boys. You are doing amazing. Please know that."
