STACEY Solomon has revealed how she broke down in tears after son Zachary asked boyfriend Joe Swash if he was his son now.
The pair have been together since 2015 and share a child together, but today the Loose Women star, 30, shared a tender family moment.
On the show Stacey revealed the touching moment when her eldest child told Joe that he thinks of him as a “second dad”.
Stacey has sons Leighton, seven, and Zach, 11, from previous relationships as well seven-month-old baby Rex with Joe, 38 – he also has son, Harry, from a previous relationship with ex-fiance Emma Sophocleous.
On Loose Women this lunchtime Stacey revealed how she “lost it” and broke down when her son Zach asked Joe whether he “loved all his kids the same”.
Stacey told how Zach and Joe go to a local cafe in the morning before school one day a week, and that today Zach was very keen for Joe to take him today.

“I was in the car on the way here and I got a call from Joe and he said, ‘I know why he was so excited to go to the cafe this morning’.”
She explained that Zach had sat Joe down and said: “So Joe, you know it’s nice having, two sort of dads. Am I like another son to you?”
“Joe was like ‘yeah of course, I love you all the same’,” she added.
“And he was obviously asking if we love all of our children the same and it was just so nice. Well I lost it. I was in the back of the cab and I lost it.” – she then mimicked crying, to show how touched she had been.
She went on to insist that although Zach’s dad is “fantastic”, she’s “so lucky” that her son has found another “father figure” in her partner.
Stacey and Joe live together with her two sons and their baby Rex.
