Pregnant Stacey Solomon 'taking a step back from work' after son Rex's accident

Stacey Solomon has said she is ‘grateful to be working’ as rumours circulate about the star taking some time out ahead of giving birth.

The mum-of-three was up and at ’em as shared a new picture of herself cradling her baby bump and getting ready for the day ahead.

She has been Cornwall recently to finish filming her upcoming TV project and confessed at the time she was missing her family.

The Loose Women star, wearing a grey dress, posed in the mirror and smiled at her unborn daughter as she took a selfie.

‘I hope you’re all ok this morning. It’s the last day of filming in Cornwall today. It’s so beautiful here and I’m so grateful to be working. But I can honestly say I hate being without the boys…I miss waking up to them and their skid marks…’

To her baby girl she said: ‘It’s just me and you princess. I’m so glad I have you here with me little one.’

On Tuesday she updated fans after doing the school run before getting back to the day job as a member of the Loose Women panel.

She shared a snap from the garden of the new home she shares with fiance Joe Swash and her sons Zach, 13, Leighton, nine and Rex, two.

She joked she had ‘serious road rage’ on the drive to school and blamed her ‘hormones’.

‘I don’t know what came over me this morning,’ Stacey said.

‘Rex fell asleep on the way back so I’m taking full advantage and having a tea and a sit in the sunshine. Happy Tuesday.’

Her comments come as claims surface that she is ‘taking a step back’ from work to focus on her family and her health after Rex was hospitalised last month.

Rex, who she shares with fiancé Joe Swash, suffered a nasty fall while playing in the garden and needed stitches, with the mum-of-three spending ‘sleepless nights’ by his side on the ward.

A source told OK!: ‘Stacey is really taking a step back from work. The little accident that Rex had gave them a shock and while Stacey tries to do everything and please everyone, she knows she needs to put her health and her family first.

‘This baby is more important than anything. They’ve gone to Cornwall for a little break and some chill time.

‘Stacey is making sure she looks after herself.’

The TV star’s representative declined to comment when contacted by

Explaining Rex’s accident, the former X Factor star said it had been a ‘nightmare’ that left Joe in tears.

On her Instagram Stories she explained at the time: ‘We had a nightmare yesterday. Rex fell over in the garden and we were like, “Up you get”. Then we looked and it was not an “up you get” situation.

‘He hurt his lip so we took him into A&E and he had some little butterfly strips put on. I’m going back today to get him proper stitches, because it’s in a really awkward place.’

She added: ‘But he was so good and he didn’t make a sound. He was just like: “Yeah, fix it,” to the doctor. But he was so good.’

Joe confessed: ‘Honestly, when the kids are hurt I panic like nobody’s business.’

Stacey revealed: ‘He had to leave the room and he was crying. Bless your soul. I’ll be looking after Joe today more than Rex – I love you.’
