Stacey Solomon: Joe Swash admits he’d have ‘separated’ from her if they didn’t have Rex

Stacey Solomon, 30, and Joe Swash, 37, welcomed their first child, Rex, back in May. During the Loose Women panelist’s latest podcast, titled Here We Go Again, the couple candidly opened up on their relationship after the birth of their little one.

Joe admitted he “resented” Stacey, and said he believes they would have “separated” if it wasn’t for their son.

The Dancing On Ice 2020 contestant made the statement after he said he found it “difficult” when Stacey wouldn’t let anyone, even him, to touch Rex after he was born.

Joe said: “I did resent you. But it’s weird, because in any other situation, I would have probably of gone, ‘We just need to take some time apart, we need to have a little separation,’ that’s how bad it was.

“I think because it’s a baby, it makes everything acceptable.”

He continued: “There’s a real reason behind it. If it was just a normal, every day, this is how we are feeling then fine we would have to think about where we were in a relationship.

“Because we had our baby, our family, it all becomes acceptable.”

Joe said he managed to cope in the situation by spending time away from the household to think.

“I used to go to my mum’s a lot, I never used to do discuss it with my mum, it was the drive, just being in the car,” he spilled.

“That little drive, about 45 minutes, would be enough for me to recharge my batteries and have me time.”

Despite the difficult period, the pair got through it and Joe said he “takes his hat off” to Stacey for raising their family.

He praised: “You went through all the hard work, honestly, all I had to do was bite my tongue a little bit and realise it wasn’t the real you screaming and shouting.”

“Our kid is amazing, he’s the happiest, smiliest baby, honestly, I have ever met in my life,” Joe added.

Also within the podcast, Stacey explained why she was so protective of Rex in the beginning, which resulted in Joe “struggling”.

She said: “After I had Rex, I felt because he was early and tiny and I struggled to feed, I didn’t want anything to harm him and this overwhelming sense of needing to protect him just took over my life.

“What that meant was nobody was allowed near him including you, which wasn’t anything against you. I didn’t want anyone kissing him, didn’t want any germs near him.”

She added: “I felt like something bad was going to happen if I didn’t keep him completely cocooned.”

Joe told his side of the story and said he “resented” his other-half “slightly” for not letting him be near their son.

He added: “There were times where I felt I was bonding with someone else’s child, I would go, ‘Can I feed him?’ ‘No.’ ‘Can I have him?’ ‘No’.”

Stacey has two other children, Zachary, 11, and Leighton, seven, from two different previous relationships.

Joe is father to son Harry, 12, from a previous relationship.
