Stacey Solomon fears Rex hasn't ‘socialised enough’ as pandemic stopped him going to toddler groups in March

STACEY Solomon has revealed she fears her son Rex hasn't socialised enough because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The one-year-old hasn't been to toddler groups since March, and Stacey admitted he and other kids like him will be playing catch up when they eventually return.

She responded to a fan who expressed concern that her daughter's social skills have been affected by the pandemic.

Stacey reassured her that she wasn't alone, and that she had some of the same worries.

She wrote: "Honestly Rex hasn't been to one group, swimming, tiny tots, ANYTHING since March either.

"When they are able to go they all catch up and make up for lost time. I promise. By now I'd love Rex to be in nursery and socialising with children his age but I know when he does go he will adapt and most of the children there will be in exactly the same boat! You're doing AMAZING."

Last night Stacey took her two eldest sons out shopping to B&M in their pyjamas to "get them out the house" during Tier 4 restrictions.

The mum-of-three had Zachary, 12, and Leighton, 8, tag along with her to do the evening grocery shop.

Taking to her Instagram story, the 31-year-old shared a video of her boys dancing excitedly outside the door.

The Loose Women star explained getting them out the house helped partner Joe Swash put their youngest son Rex to bed.

She wrote: "Taking these two out for the nightly shop to get them out of the house and give Joe an actual hope of getting the baby to sleep."

An hour later, she photographed the boys smiling outside of the shop, explaining they'd picked up some presents for themselves.


"When you go in for dog food and sugar and you come out with a Ferris wheel and a metre of Pringles," she wrote on the snap of the pair in their matching pyjamas. "Thanks B&M."

The exhausted mum proved the shopping trick helped keep her kids happy, showing them snoozing on the sofa shortly after.

"I'm going to unpack the shopping and do some wrapping while I have the chance," she joked, showing the boys peacefully asleep.

It isn't the first time Stacey has been caught out shopping in her cosies, as she was spotted in her slippers stocking up on Christmas decorations at the garden centre earlier this month.

Busy Stacey wrapped up in a fluffy dressing gown and her pyjamas for the trip to Summer Hills Garden Centre in Basildon.

A source told The Sun: "Stacey did the school run in her pyjamas, and then popped to the garden centre to pick up a few things."

Not shy about wearing the bed clothes in public, the singer hit back at trolls who shamed her choice of outfit.

She wrote: "Back from the school run and for those telling me how sorry they feel for the boys having a mum who takes them to school in her pyjamas.

"Don't worry they were my posh pyjamas.

"There was definitely a time when people wore pyjamas to go out, I remember the pyjamas trend.

"You'd wear pyjamas with a pair of heels and it was a going out out outfit. I don't even get out of the car."
