Stacey Solomon was ‘so sad’ after her youngest son Rex decided he wanted his hair cut for the first time earlier this week.

The pregnant TV personality, 31, fought back tears as the two-year-old sat like an angel to have his long strawberry-blond curls chopped off.

Stacey, who is pregnant with hers and fiance Joe Swash’s first baby daughter, regularly shares candid family moments with her loyal Instagram followers, and Rex’s first haircut was no exception.

Her 4.6 million fans on the social media platform turned in on Thursday evening as the former X Factor star shared updates of Rex’s hair trim and how it came about.

Rex is the only son of both Stacey and Joe Swash, 39, born in May 2019, but will soon become a big brother to a baby girl, as Stacey is pregnant and expecting a new arrival in the coming weeks.


She’s also a mum to 13 year old Leighton and nine year old Zachary, both of whom are from past relationships.

Former EastEnders actor Joe also has a son, 11 year old Harry, from a past relationship.

All of the Loose Women panellist’s sons have longer hair, and the mum has publicly stated she’s never pressured them to cut their locks, opting to let them decide whether or not they want a trim.

However, cheeky toddler Rex – who Stacey lovingly refers to as Pickle – asked his mum if he could also get his hair done after the family’s hairdresser Penny was giving Stacey a trim.

The mum’s decision to have her own hair cut was a last-minute one, as she’d originally popped out to try out her new clothing range with InTheStyle and taken her sons along for the day.

Penny was at the brand’s shoot location, styling Stacey’s tresses when the busy mum asked for a quick fringe trim.

Explaining how Rex’s first haircut came to be, Stacey wrote: “Aw. While we were here I needed to trim my hair at the front, Rex saw and asked to have his hair cut.”

Before any decisions were made, the star consulted with her actor fiancé, who gave it the all-clear: “I called Joe Joe and we decided to give him his first trim”.

Hairdresser Penny has been cutting TV star Joe’s hair for a whopping 11 years and Stacey’s go-to girl for the last five years, so she knew her son was in safe hands.


The pregnancy hormones got the better of Stacey, who started getting upset during Rex’s first trim.

She explained that: “I felt really emotional but Penny who is cutting it has been cutting Joe's hair for 11 years and mine for 5 so it felt a little bit special.”

Thankfully, the toddler didn’t want all of his gorgeous locks cut off, as Stacey reassured fans: “It was just a trim, I’m not ready to give him a buzz cut yet.

“But I feel so sad for some reason like he’s really growing up.”


The star joked she was “like a psychopath” as she’d saved her son’s gorgeous light-strawberry-blonde locks as a memento.

Despite her own stresses, Rex had a great experience having his first chop, as according to Stacey he “actually loved sitting having it done so much”, adding that he “loves his hair being brushed”.
