An emotional Stacey Solomon broke down in tears during yesterday’s episode of Loose Women, as the panel surprised her with series of treats in honour of her 30th birthday.
The mum-of-three dabbed her eyes with a huge bunch of tissues as a string of video tributes from her loved ones were played, including sweet appearances from her three sons, Zachary, 11, Leighton, seven and four-month-old Rex.
Her eldest popped on the screen to say, “Happy birthday mum. I can’t believe you’re 30, you’re just so young. It goes so fast doesn’t it?” while Leighton added “Happy birthday mum. Have a great birthday. Lots of love.”
As her partner Joe Swash flashed up to send his own kind words, little Rex beamed adorably at the camera.
Also featured in the thoughtful montage were Stacey’s mum Fiona, dad David, step-mum Karen, 92-year-old grandma, brother Josh and sister Jemma.
The lucky X-Factor star was then presented with a huge, unicorn birthday cake and a pink unicorn dressing gown.
To top it all off, Stacey’s favourite Nineties boy band 911 even made an appearance on the show to serenade her.
Opening up about life as a 30-year-old and explaining her urge to cry, Stacey said, “I’m excited. I’m glad to be alive. But I feel weird to be 30. There’s definitely some weird emotions going on.
“I found myself crying a lot. I don’t know if that’s the baby or what, but I’ve found myself getting really emotional about things thinking: ‘I haven’t got long left, I’m 30’”
