Stacey Solomon emotional as sons start new schools: ‘My heart is aching’

Stacey Solomon has admitted her "heart is aching" as two of her children hit massive milestones at the same time.

In an emotional post, the Loose Women panellist revealed that her son Leighton is starting high school at the same time her little one Rex who is headed off to Primary School.

Opening up about her boys' "new adventures," the proud mum some adorable snaps of her eleven-year-old with his arms around his four-year-old brother as the pair proudly tried on their new uniforms.

The doting mum captioned the images: "Time is a thief. And Just Like That, a whole new adventure begins, and an old era ends…

"My darling boys, as you go out into a whole new world, Primary & Secondary school, I hope you remember that you are strong, kind, intelligent, caring, young men with all of the love here at home you will ever need."

Offering her sons some life advice, Stacey continued: "Be yourselves, don't change for anyone. Stay true to who you are and enjoy those first days, because take it from mum who knows, you'll blink and it'll be the last days.

"Good luck and have so much fun. To the moon and back Rex & Leighton. We love you. P.S. a huge hug to every parent or carer out there not finding days like this easy for many different reasons. I'm with you. My heart is aching."

Stacey is mum to Zachary, 15 and Leighton, 11 from previous relationships and shares Rex, four, 23-month-old Rose, and six-month-old Belle with husband Joe Swash.

The former X Factor star recently opened up to OK! about the reality of becoming a teenage mother after having her oldest son Zachary at 17 years old.

"Me and my mum laugh about this now because before I had Zachary I was all over the place," she admitted.

"I was such an unorganised mess. I was so scatty and would forget my instruments for school and all my homework and stuff, and I just lived this really ridiculously awkward life of losing stuff."

The now mum of five told us she knew that she needed to overhaul her chaotic lifestyle, or she wouldn't be able to cope.

"I honestly put it down to having Zach at a really young age and having so many commitments," said Stacey, who welcomed daughter Belle to her brood in February.

"I was still at college doing my A levels, as well as working on the side. As soon as I had Zachary, I realised I couldn't live my life in a scatty way anymore.

"I had a human to look after, I had to work out where my milk vouchers were and how I would keep them going for the whole week. How would I get him into nursery then get to college, then get to work, and who was going to do childcare?

"Everything became like a military operation, and if I wasn't organised, I would not have got through the day."
