Stacey Soloman has been dating Joe Swash now for several months, and the former X Factor star admitted last month that their relationship was going “really, really well” - even hinting there may be wedding bellsfor the couple.

Speaking to Lorraine in May, Stacey revealed she feels “lucky” to be with the former EastEnders actor. She said: “He’s normal, he’s just so normal and down to earth and lovely and reminds me of me, and my family, and reminds me of home.”

Stacey and Joe – who both previously won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2010 and 2008 respectively – have children from previous relationships, but Stacey has now revealed that she doesn’t think she will have any more.

During her Loose Women panellist debut on Monday 13, Stacey said: “I really, really would love more children. Selfishly, I want more children.”

However, the mum-of-two sadly added: “But society, again, makes me feel as though [I can't].”

The 26 year old is proud mum to Zachary, eight and Leighton, four – who she had from two different relationships, and sadly admitted on the ITV chat show that she feels as though she “can’t have another child with somebody else”.

Stacey became pregnant with Zachary when she was 17 with then-boyfriend Dean Cox, and told fellow Loose Women panellists that she felt she couldn’t keep the baby due to stigma around how old you should be when having a child.

Candidly speaking about how she went to an abortion clinic, Stacey then revealed how she couldn’t go through with it and made the “best decision” by keeping the baby.

However the yummy mummy added: “I spent a lot of my childhood walking around with a baby and a pram, and I know what it feels like to have people looking at you.

“Now that my life is really quite open, I can imagine the comments.”

We say ignore what everyone else thinks, and do what makes you happy Stacey!

Do you agree that it’s wrong to have multiple children by different partners?
