Stacey Solomon has admitted she feared she’d be branded a “rubbish mum” by trolls over a video which showed her son Rex climbing onto the kitchen table.
The Loose Women star, 31, was filming an Instagram video at home in which she was showing off her new wicker lampshades from Ikea.
While she was holding one of the items up for the camera, Rex, who was seated at the table, was seen pulling himself up until he was crawling on the top.
Stacey put down the shade and exclaimed: “Oh my God!”
She shared the clip eventually and admitted she was initially reluctant to post it over fears she’d be targeted by mummy-shaming trolls.
She wrote: “I wasn’t going to post this because I just thought omg the trolls will be out in full force to tell me I’m a rubbish mum.
“So I recorded a different one and then thought NO. Just NO. If you have a toddler and they’re not climbing on everything and giving you regular mini heart attacks then you don’t have a toddler.
“There’s just no point being on here and pretending everything is perfect. So rage away Susan rage away.”
The admission came hours after her partner Joe Swash, who is Rex’s dad, admitted he’d love for them to have another baby.
During an appearance on Loose Women, Joe, 38, mulled over the possibility of becoming a dad again.
He said: “You know what it is.
“Because our Rex is growing up so fast and he is walking around and he is talking to us.
“The baby bit goes so fast. I just, I think I’ve got one more in me ladies.”
