The 29-year-old, who has shared plenty of candid posts with her 1.8 million followers since she arrival of her newborn baby, updated fans with another heartfelt caption.

While enjoying some family fun time, the former X-Factor star, who has welcomed baby Rex with boyfriend Joe Swash, expressed some breast milk using a pump.

Beside the sweet photo, the Loose Women panellist, who is also mum to 11-year-old Zachary, opened up about feeling some serious parent-guilt, writing: ‘Knowing that my boys don’t bat an eyelid that I’m sat playing with them whilst milking myself, or that I have to whack my boob out every hour makes me extremely proud. Trying to get a bit of one on one time with my big baby today in between feeds.’

Stacey went on to explain her concern that she isn’t able to spend as much time with her older sons since Rex was born, adding: ‘Feel like I’ve neglected the boys over the last few weeks trying to get into a feeding pattern. I haven’t managed to get into one yet (IS THAT NORMAL??). 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.’

The telly personality also confessed that she is yet to venture far from home since giving birth last month, adding: ‘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… 🙏🏼.’
