Stacey Solomon shares glimpse of filled pool as excited son Rex wants to swim

Stacey Solomon has been keeping her 5.2million Instagram followers up to to date with the progress of her huge new outdoor swimming pool at her £1.2million Essex mansion, Pickle Cottage.

The pool is finally filled, and Stacey took to her Instagram stories to share the excitement of her three year old son, who has been desperately waiting for the pool to be finished, and Stacey even showed him helping to fill it with a hose while wearing a life jacket.

Mum Stacey's video showed an excited Rex sat on the edge of the pool wearing a grey sweatsuit and a life jacket, before the clip cut to a video of him sat with his brother Leighton, who had his arm around his younger brother’s shoulders.

The caption read: “Good morning from a very excited Rex & Leighton”.


“The pool has has been filling up over the last couple of days. (It’s been like watching paint dry TBH). I’ve had to take Rex over every day and open it up to have a look. This was before work yesterday”.

The next story showed the pool workers checking the pool, as Stacey enjoyed a cup of tea.

She wrote: “…and today it’s finally at the top” with three crying face emojis.

Letting her followers know what was left to do before the final pool reveal, she wrote: “So now just some levels, pump testing, and the heating goes on.


“It will take a couple of days to warm up. I know this is the longest tap to tidy of all time, but we are almost there now. Honestly soooooo close, I can’t believe it”.

Stacey has been showing off the transformation of her Pickle Cottage home as it undergoes renovations, with her Instagram followers hooked on her every move – and her fans have been particularly interested with the progress of her pool transformation.

Former The X Factor star and I’m A Celebrity winner Stacey is a dab-hand at DIY, having done much of the work on her home, including creating her children’s bedrooms, and making her fiancé Joe Swash a ‘man cave’ for his 40th birthday.

Joe and Stacey share two children together, Rex, three, and Rose, seven months.

Stacey is also mother to two sons, Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10 from previous relationships, and is also stepmother to Joe’s son Harry, 14.

Stacey recently confirmed that she and Joe would be getting married in eight weeks, with the wedding set to take place in the woods in the garden of their home.

She shared videos of the woods ‘growing wild’ to her Instagram stories, writing: “8 weeks to go… the wild woods”, before adding: “I can’t wait to walk through here with the boys & Rose and meet Joe in my wedding dress”.
