JOE Swash has shared a rare picture of his eldest 13-year-old son Harry with his step-children Zachary and Leighton.
The proud father-of-two – who is also step-dad to Stacey Soloman's sons Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine – took to Instagram to show off their blended family enjoying a day out together.
Former EastEnders star posted a family photo after completing a water obstacle course at Aqua Bounce UK in London.
Joe wrote: "Amazing fun at @aquabounceuk xxx"
Stacey replied: "Good timing because the bath is almost ready for you to move back into position 😂😂😂 love you boys 🖤🖤"
The pair are advocates for blended families, but Joe previously admitted that adjusting to a blended family can be a "long process" with ups and downs.
"Even sometimes, when you think you’ve got the balance right, something will happen and you’ll have to start again from zero,” Joe told Lifestyle Daily last year.
“The best thing we’ve learnt over the years is communication,” Stacey added.
“Trying to be as open and honest as possible with the kids. It’s amazing to see them grow.”
Stacey shares Leighton, nine, with ex-fiance Aaron Barnham and Zachary, 13, with Dean Cox.
Joe is dad to 13-year-old Harry from his previous relationship with ex-fiancée Emma Sophocleous, 35.
The couple – who got engaged in December 2020 – already have one son together Rex, two and are expecting a girl in the Autumn.
Last week, Joe revealed that he didn't want to postpone his wedding to Stacey, but that she was determined to wait.
Taking to Instagram for an intimate Q&A with fans, Joe revealed he would "marry her tomorrow" if he could.
TV star was asked by fans whether or not they would be getting married before their baby girl arrives in around two months time.
"Are you and Stace getting married before the baby arrives?" the follower asked him, to which he replied with one of their engagement photos.
"I would marry her tomorrow," he began the sweet post. "But we both wanted to wait until next year, that way all of the kids can be there."
Joe sweetly concluded the answer to the personal question, adding: "Couldn't not have our flower girl there could we."
The star also revealed that he and Stacey are yet to pick a name for their baby girl.
"Hopefully when she's here we will just know," Joe added ahead of the birth.
