Stacey Solomon brands working mums ‘f***ing incredible’ as she returns to job – Mirror Online
Stacey Solomon praised working mums as she returned to her job for the first time since welcoming baby Rex – branding them “f***ing incredible”.
The Loose Women presenter went back to work for her first full day today, telling fans she’s working on a new secret project.
The 29-year-old, who recently welcomed son Rex with boyfriend Joe Swash, said she was thrilled to be able to take him with her.
Sharing a tale about what her life was like when she welcomed eldest son Zachary, 11, Stacey, who is also mum to seven-year-old Leighton, said she felt sympathy for mothers who aren’t in the same position as she is now.
Stacey praised working mums as she shared a gorgeous picture of herself posing with her little one alongside another more ‘real’ snap of her sitting on the floor while she breastfed him.
She said: “Did my first full day back at work today so this is an appreciation post for all of those mothers who have to leave their babies and go back to work.
“I felt really emotional today but the reality for me was that I was able to bring Rex with me, to a job that I absolutely love, doing something I really enjoy.
“I sat for a long time today just thinking about how lucky I am. And I couldn’t help but spend a lot of time thinking about women with really tough jobs, ones they may not even like doing. Jobs that aren’t understanding. The jobs that don’t allow you the chance to continue to work and also allow you to include your child in some way.
“Those people who don’t have understanding, companionate colleagues and bosses. Those that are doing all they can to survive and don’t have a choice as to weather they ”want” to go back to work or not.
“I remember having Zachary and going back to college when he was this age, then I’d be straight to the fish and chip shop after college and I’d only see him before I dropped him off in the college crèche and then when I got home about 10 after my shift. I’m so lucky that thats not the case this time around (enter 1st child mum guilt)
“But I know that that scenario and so many others are lots of people’s current reality so basically I’m in awe of you all. Your f*ing incredible. You’re raising super humans and doing a great job! P.S Rex isn’t in this project I just stole a sneaky pic of the two of us while we were both there, and I was fully made up and dressed in actual clothes P.P.S a little insta vs reality in the swipe”
