Joe Swash opens up on Stacey Solomon struggles and ‘ups and downs’ in lockdown

Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have a seemingly perfect family life, with their gorgeous pristine home that they share with their children.

However, just like every other relationship, Joe and Stacey's has its "ups and down", admits the actor.

The 38-year-old former EastEnders star has opened up about his and his beau's home life during lockdown, and says it's been tough juggling four kids together.

Joe's typically frantic work schedule screeched to a halt following his Dancing on Ice win at the start of the year, and COVID-19's taken a toll on his usually busy lifestyle.

This in turn has given him plenty of time to spend with the family and he says it's made his and Stacey's relationship "stronger than ever".

Speaking to The Sun Online as he launches webuyanygift.com, he said: "At the beginning of lockdown, it was a slight learning process about how we are going to do this.

"We had our moments, we had our ups and downs, but we found our groove and we work well as a team.

"We've got kids so we made it work. I think we're definitely stronger on the other side of it thankfully."

As well as youngest son Rex, one, whom he shares with Stacey, Joe is also a dad to 13-year-old Harry from a previous relationship.

Stacey also has two sons Leighton and Zach from previous relationships.

And it's looking likely that Rex might not be the last addition to their lovely family as Joe's suggested he and Stacey could be trying for another.

He jokes: "I think we'll maybe get to a five aside team!

"We love our family and our kids are so precious to us so if we can have another one, if we're lucky enough to have another one, then I'm sure we'll both be very tempted."

Their house is currently full of boys but if they were to have another child, regardless of gender, Joe's insisted it'll be their last.

"I think regardless of what the next one will be, will be the last one.

"My family is complete already. If we have anything, it's just adding to perfection."

He added: "Rex is such a little stunner. He's beautiful and he has me in stitches, every day he's coming up with something new. It's so nice, it's brilliant.

"Every family is different and every family has their own dramas going on and they're all dealing with their own issues."

Speaking about Stacey, he added: "You'd think that the boys would overrule Stacey, but no. She is a force to be reckoned with.

"She is definitely in charge when it comes to making decisions. We definitely know who's boss in this house."
