Stacey Solomon has admitted she's battling 'gut-wrenching mum guilt' since giving birth to her third child Rex.
In a candid post to Instagram, the mum confessed that she'd been struggling with her emotions, and has been trying to keep busy as a distraction.
Rex is Stacey’s first child with her boyfriend Joe Swash, and she has two other sons Zacheray and Leighton from previous relationships.
In a heartfelt post, she began, ‘I feel like I shouldn’t really have these feelings because I’m nearly eight weeks in and I am so incredibly lucky to have amazing children, a wonderful partner, loves loving, caring, & supportive family and I’m almost a bit embarrassed to say…
‘That truth be told, I’m having a bit of a gut wrenching day. One of those days that physically hurts your tummy. I have absolutely no idea why. Mum guilt has kicked in full swing. Nothing in particular triggers the feeling. It’s just there.'
The former X Factor star continued, ‘Tried to keep busy and organise the hell out of the house which has helped for short moments (but also felt guilty about it). So making a conscious effort to try to accept it and let the feelings come and go.
‘I found this picture from a few days ago when I caught a rare snap of us both smiling at the same time (and when I’d miraculously found the energy to have fun with my make up drawer).
‘I’ve been looking at it all day to remind myself that these feelings WILL pass and every day will be different. Thinking of anyone else having a struggle today or any day for that matter.’
