The mum-of-two made the revelations on Loose Women
Stacey Solomon has revealed she is would ‘really, really love’ to have more children. Are you paying attention, Joe Swash!?
The mum-of-stwo – who has been dating former EastEnders star Joe since last November – made the revelation when she joined Loose Women as a guest panellist on Monday.
Asked if she would consider having another child with lovely Joe, Stace confessed: ‘I really, really would love more children. Selfishly, I want more children.’
But the star – who fell pregnant with her first child at the age of 17 – also revealed the sad reason that holds her back from adding to her family, saying: ‘I have children from two relatioships, and I kinda feel like I can’t have another child with someone else.’
‘Because of what people will think?’ host Ruth Langsford asked?
‘Yeah,’ Stacey replied. ‘I spent a lot of my childhood walking around with a baby and a pram, and I know what it feels like to have people looking at you.’
She added: ‘Now that my life is really quite open, I can imagine the comments.’
But the Loose Women had Stacey’s back, encouraging her to ignore what ‘society’ thinks.
‘Those people that make those comments aren’t worth knowing or worth caring about,’ Coleen Nolan told her to cheers from the audience.
Nadia Sawalha wisely added: ‘Those that mind don’t matter, and those that matter don’t mind.’
And Coleen had the last word, saying: ‘We all want to be aunties!’
But although she’s keen to pop out another sprog, Stace confessed that she wouldn’t enjoy physically being pregnant again.
‘People feel like they can just rub your belly!’ she said, recalling from a previous pregnancy: ‘I’d be on the train and random people would just be like, ‘oh, let me have a feel [of your belly]’. It was traumatic!’
Stacey’s desire for a baby cam up during a conversation about the ideal age to have a baby after a scientist enraged women by telling them to have children at 25, with Stacey weighing in on the topic.
‘I do not agree with the mentality of ‘women shouldn’t be 40 when they have their children, girls shouldn’t be 16 when they have their children’,’ she said.
‘I am so sick of people telling me when is best to have your children. Everyone’s situation is different, everyone’s life is different. You have to treat each individual case as it is.’
