Stacey Solomon reveals 'pressure' over stigma of children having different dads

Stacey Solomon has admitted that she sometimes feels ‘guilty’ about having children with different fathers.

The singer had her first child Zachary, 11, with her childhood boyfriend Dean Cox at the young age of 17 and had Leighton, seven, with ex-fiancé Aaron Barnham.

The 30-year-old said: ‘There’s a stigma about having babies with different partners. I’ve definitely felt pressure from people – people I don’t know, and even people I do know.’

Stacey is now dating Joe Swash, who she met on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2016.

The television personality gave birth to her and Joe’s first child in May of this year and Joe took to her Instagram and made us all well up with tears.

He wrote: ‘This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world. We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come. Mummy and baby are well and resting.

‘We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we’ve received over the last 8 months,’ he added.

‘I’m lost for words to describe how I’m feeling. So for now, I’m going to spend the next few days and the rest of my life falling more in love with these two humans. I didn’t think it possible but, today I witnessed the impossible. My partner, My love, my life, you are a super human. I am forever in awe. Joe X [sic]’

Although Stacey – who wowed England with her X Factor performance of Louis Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World – shares three children with three different men, the kids are as happy as can be and Stacey is finally proud of herself.

‘Life is so much more complicated with kids from different dads, for sure,’ she continued, speaking to Closer.

‘There are definitely dynamics I’ve had to work around, and it’s not as straightforward as a conventional family.

‘But it’s wonderful at the same time – I’m so glad I moved forward from those relationships because it wouldn’t have been right to stay in them.’
