Stacey Solomon gushed over boyfriend Joe Swash as she made a return to Loose Women on Friday as the show celebrated 20 years on screen.
Stacey, 29, brought along her gorgeous baby son Rex for her appearance on the ITV show, with him joining her in the studio.
The baby boy, who was born in May, was as good as gold as Stacey talked to her fellow panellists, as he smiled away, leaving the audience cooing over him.
As Rex sat on her lap, Stacey gushed over how good a father her boyfriend, former EastEnders star Joe Swash, is.
Getting emotional, Stacey said: “Poor Joe, bless him, he’s had the wrath of me. It’s been really intense. He’s such a brilliant dad.”
Speaking to Rex, the mum-of-three said: “You are such a lucky little man. I’ll have to stop there or I’ll cry."
Stacey – who is often praised for showing off her postpartum body – also joked that she’s been suffering from serious ‘FOMO’ during her time away from Loose Women.
Opening up on having a third child, Stacey admitted she feels like she is raising her first child all over again.
She said: “I feel like I went back to zero like I’ve never done it before.
“I remember bringing him home and thinking, “How am I going to keep him alive?”
She added of Rex: "He’s brilliant. My other two were every different. I think the third one has to get used to being left alone."
Viewers couldn’t help but take to social media to gush over the tot, with one person writing: “@loosewomen Ah Rex is so cute, his lovely smile has made my day. Loving today's show.”
Another said: “Bloody crying @loosewomen with @StaceySolomon on with baby Rex, he is so cute and adorable! Can’t wait to meet my baby.”
A third commented: “#LooseWomen awww baby rex so adorable that smile looks just like @realjoeswash and im nt normally a baby fan can see hes a really chilled out baby! @StaceySolomon.” [sic]
A fourth viewer gushed: “My hormones can not handle baby Rex on Loose Women right now. He is the sweetest baby oh my gosh.”
It has been an emotional week for Stacey, as her oldest son Zachary started secondary school, after being homeschooled for the past two years.
Along snaps of Zachary in his school uniform, Stacey wrote on Instagram: “ And so it begins… A whole new world. The beginning of adolescence. Will the gut wrench ever ease?
"Zachary what can I say… (I promised I wouldn’t be too gushy in case your friends see this) So here goes… I’ve had the most amazing two years with you.
"Home education has been all that I imagined and so much more. It wasn’t always easy but it was always rewarding.
"I know that you can do anything you put your mind to, and you’ve put your mind to going to secondary school so I know you’ll be brilliant.
"I’m nervous, excited and everything in between but I know this is what you need and as much as I’d love to spend all of my time with you, I know I have to let you go.
"Good luck my darling! I love you more than you’ll ever know. He’s as prepared as is physically possible and I still feel like I’ve forgotten something.
"Rucksack with every piece of stationary imaginable, lunch, snack, uniform on by the book and his shiny, clean @clarkskids shoes (AD)… (I remember getting my first pair)
"I’m sure if he’s anything like me he will come back with hardly anything, scuffs on his shoes and scabby knees but as long as he comes back happy that’s all I pray for!"
