March 14, 2023

STACEY Solomon told fans she feels like she's been doing a rubbish job parenting of late as she grapples with life as a mum-of-five.

The popular TV star, who welcomed fifth child Belle in February, felt like a superhero yesterday after bossing a day with the kids – but she admitted it's not always the case.

She wrote on Instagram: "Proud. Feeling like I smashed it today. Don’t mind if I sound big headed but I felt like a superhuman today. For some reason lately I’ve found it easy to tell myself that I’m failing or doing a rubbish job & I never tell myself how well I'm doing.

"Three 3 & under & two teenagers is wonderful but it’s not easy. Joe did a night feed for me last night & then went to work So we did the school runs and then afterwards I managed to make it for the first time EVER to Rhyme time at the library with Rex, Rose & Belle."

Stacey relished being around other new mums before returning home to play, cook and then took Rex swimming.

She continued: "Now we are home & I’m ready to collapse on the sofa & start the cluster feeds. Sorry for the essay. but basically Just a little reminder that you’re doing amazing, even when you feel like you’re not. You’re so incredible don’t forget to tell yourself that sometimes."

Speaking to her 5.6m followers, Stacey said: "Public service announcement for anyone who has ever felt like 'oh my gosh, it looks like they've got their s*** together and I really haven't'.

"Please don't feel like that. You're doing an incredible job.

"I know it looks like I've just gone straight back to normal as if I never gave birth, it feels like that if I'm honest, but it's only because of the whole sleep when she sleeps, make sure you take time to rest and recover, don't do anything too quickly, goes all out the window when you've got a one-year-old!

"So I just want you to know, don't underestimate the fact that it's incredible this age gap, three, one and zero, I'm so grateful to have three young babies that can grow up together.

"I can assure you, 100 per cent of the time I feel absolutely f***ed. You're not alone. "
