Stacey Solomon ‘devastated’ as she reveals she feels ‘empty and hollow’ without baby bump

Stacey Solomon has revealed that she feels ‘devastated’ at her shrinking baby bump.

The Loose Women panellist gave birth to her third child late last week, a month earlier than expected, and has now spoken out about feeling like she didn’t appreciate her pregnancy enough.

The mum-of-three, who welcomed her newborn with partner of four years Joe Swash, took to her Instagram page to share her devastation at the fact that her stomach is shrinking now that her baby has been born.

‘I’ve lost it today,’ wrote the 29-year-old. ‘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.

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. 💙
