Stacey Solomon’s dad had ‘lucky’ escape in car accident just one day after grandson was born

Stacey Solomon welcomed her first child with partner Joe Swash last week, but the next day the TV star received the news that her dad had been involved in a car accident.

Stacey’s dad David revealed that he had been in a car accident just one day after the birth of his grandson on social media, where he shared pictures and a video of the scary ordeal.

The wedding photographer shared a picture of the back of his car that was crashed into, and wrote alongside it: ‘Please don’t look at your phones whilst driving this happened to me a few days ago and we were so lucky.’

He also shared a video of the moment it happened, as he had a dashboard camera recording.

Suggesting that the accident was caused by the other driver because he was looking at his phone, he wrote: ‘Don’t look at your phone 📱 #driving #car #accident #family #fines #license #no this is what happened to me a few days ago still sore #hospital #injury.’

The scary news comes just a few days after Stacey confessed to fans how devastated she was by not being pregnant anymore, as she shared a snap of Joe kissing her postpartum belly.

I’ve lost it today. I really miss my bump and baby being inside me. I don’t feel I appreciated it enough while I was pregnant and now it’s over. Joe and I didn’t have one picture of him with my bump. The thought of not having that memory has been really getting me down so today, Joe and my Dad helped me get a picture of what’s left of my bump to cheer me up. I love them so much. It’s not the same but it still means the world to me. For the record, for all of the people who asked me how excited I was to get my pre baby body back? Was I hoping to “snap back”? Am I going to train? Etc etc. I hate these questions. They’re pointless. And not important or relevant. No one knows how they’re going to feel and what we look like after birth is the very least of our worries. The truth is I’m devastated that my belly is shrinking by the day. I wish it could stay around for a little longer. I feel empty and hollow. Not to mention like I’ve been punched in the vagina. 💙

We’re wishing David a speedy recovery.
