Emotional Stacey Solomon takes picture of Rex from his hospital bed after operation and A&E dash

EMOTIONAL Stacey Solomon took a picture of two-year-old son Rex from his hospital bed following his operation and A&E dash.

The pair stayed at the hospital overnight after the toddler suffered a nasty accident at home – going in for the surgery early this morning.

The 31-year-old star has been keeping followers updated from the hospital room while waiting for Rex to come back, and was relieved with his return.

Sharing a photo of her and Rex holding hands, Stacey wrote: "I got my pickle back. Love you all to the moon and back".

She also added a string of crying emojis.

In the photo, her little boy is still in his hospital gown and has a medical bracelet around his wrist.


He needed to have the op to get proper stitches put into his injured lip, as the "awkward" position of the cut made butterfly stitches "too fiddly".

Stacey and Rex originally waited for hours at the hospital yesterday to get the stitches, but the hospital were forced to send Rex home due to a lack of beds.

The pregnant TV favourite then received a call to bring Rex in last night, where they stayed over so that he could be seen first thing.

Earlier in the day, Stacey had revealed that fiance Joe Swash had broken down in tears after Rex's accident.


She told fans at the time: "We had a nightmare yesterday. Rex fell over in the garden and we were like, 'Up you get.' Then we looked and it was not an 'up you get' situation.

"He hurt his lip so we took him into A&E and he had some little butterfly strips put on."

She added: "I'm going back today to get him proper stitches, because it's in a really awkward place.

"But he was so good and he didn't make a sound. He was just like: 'Yeah, fix it,' to the doctor. But he was so good."

Stacey then turned the phone to Joe, saying: "Joe on the other hand…"

Joe replied, shaking his head: "Honestly, when the kids are hurt I panic like nobody's business."

Stacey added: "He had to leave the room and he was crying. Bless your soul. I'll be looking after Joe today more than Rex – I love you."

Stacey announced that she was pregnant earlier this month in a sweet video montage that documented her and Joe's pregnancy journey.

She revealed they'd suffered heartbreaking miscarriages and believed they'd never be blessed with another child.

In addition to Rex, Stacey is mum to 13-year-old Zachary, and nine-year-old Leighton, and Joe is dad to 13-year-old Harry from previous relationships.
