Stacey Solomon reveals her son left her crying tears of joy in heartwarming post

Stacey Solomon shared an adorable picture of her son Leighton helping get ready for a date night.

In the heartwarming image, the Loose Women panellist is grinning at the camera while six-year-old Leighton is seen zipping up her sparkly black evening dress in the mirror.

‘He’s had my back and melted my heart from day one,’ Stacey wrote, adding, ‘had a little cry after I took this for no reason whatsoever other than the overwhelming love I have for my babies’.

Leighton was ‘Helping mummy get ready for a very rare night out with @realjoeswashy raising awareness & money for @standup2canceruk @cr_uk with @champneysspas’.

And going by the comments left by Stacey’s Instagram followers, it looks like Leighton melted a few more hearts while he was at it.

‘That’s a perfect reason for a good cry!’ said one. ‘Hope you had a great night out!’

‘Such a beautiful photograph and can so see the emotion in your eyes. That’s a pic to treasure,’ said another.

Stacey is currently pregnant with her third child, her first with boyfriend Joe Swash.

She recently shared her first ‘bump’ picture, which showed her dog Theo guarding her bare belly.

‘She is an amazing doggy. And I love her to the moon and back!’ Stacey commented.

The pregnant star also has an 11-year-old son called Zachary with former partner Aaron Barnham. She recently revealed that she almost left him in a supermarket soon after he was born, in a ‘spectacular’ (but relatable) ‘parenting fail’.

‘I was queuing at the till when I suddenly felt sure I’d had another basket or something,’ she recalled, ‘That “something” of course was Zach!’

Stacey and Joe announced that Stacey was ‘growing a baby’ on Instagram last month, when Joe shared a sweet picture of Stacey taking a nap to his account and Stacey followed up by posting a sonogram image.

Joe also has an 11-year-old son, Harry, with his ex-partner Emma Sophocleous.
