He captioned the shot: ‘In this picture is my whole world. My two boys’.

On Instagram, one user said: ‘What about Stacey?’

Stacey wrote: ‘Mood. I’m jealous. I can’t wait to sleep like this’.

Struggles: After admitting that she feels ‘ridiculously teary’ since leaving the hospital, Stacey showcased her dazzling smile and posed for the snap, holding her bundle of joy

Last month, Joe announced that Stacey had given birth to their first child ‘a lot earlier than planned,’ and then confirmed they were parents to a son.

The presenter shared a heartwarming image on Instagram on Friday as she revealed candid details of her struggles with hormones and breastfeeding. 

After admitting that she felt ‘ridiculously teary’ since leaving the hospital, Stacey showcased her dazzling smile as she posed for the snap, holding her bundle of joy.

The Loose Women star captioned the emotional post: ‘Today is a smiley day. it’s been an interesting week. But it feels like the fog is lifting and I’m coming out of the fuzz.’

‘I’m so grateful to have our baby boy with us and be surrounded by my incredible family – my biggest privilege. But it doesn’t mean it’s been all rosey and glossy.’

Candid details: She revealed ‘Hormone surges + really struggling to breastfeed + no sleep what so ever + engorged boobs + cracked nipples’

‘Hormone surges + really struggling to breastfeed + no sleep what so ever + engorged boobs + cracked nipples + absolutely anything as minuscule as somebody kissing my babies head = total meltdown.’ 

She added: ‘I’ve found myself spontaneously uncontrollably sobbing into my mums arms, at least twice every day. Then I feel guilty that I’m not “enjoying every second” like everyone tells you too because it passes by so quickly (and it does, my eldest is 11 and I feel like I just blinked and that happened).’ 

‘But sometimes I’m just not in control of my emotions, and I can’t feel guilty about having sad points it’s counter productive. I’m really feeling happy today which is amazing, but I’m ready to accept any sobbing or sadness that sneaks up on me at any point. ‘

‘If it doesn’t hallelujah, but if it does I’m no less of a mother for feeling that way. And to anyone else feeling or who has felt that way, don’t ever let those feelings make you feel that you weren’t good enough, you were and you are. It’s OK not to be OK.’

Stacey continued: ‘Also I want to say thank you to the amazing NHS services that we have received over the last seven days… Queens Hospital Romford, all of the nurses, midwives and paediatricians.’

‘Our community midwives, and the breastfeeding specialist who literally MILKED me for hours trying to bring my milk down from under my chest and armpits, and the Perinatal Parent Infant Mental Health Services in our area who have been so attentive and always there if we need them. 

‘Thinking of all of those who don’t have a support system around them. If you need someone to talk to there are people out there… please don’t hesitate to reach out.’

Speaking via phone, she said: ‘She is so good, it was amazing, such a lovely birth and I was so privileged to be a part of it. It was amazing.’

On the singer having a quick labour, Stacey’s sibling added: ‘Yeah, she did. It was amazing, I feel like he flew out of her.

‘She was saying it was hours, but I got into work at 8, he was born 10:01, so I thought: “That was pretty quick!” He just came so quick I couldn’t help.’

Jemma went on to praise Stacey’s partner and baby daddy, Joe, she continued: ‘There were tears of joy, Joe was so good, he didn’t know what to do, he was saying: “Am I doing it right? Am I doing it OK?”

‘It was so lovely to be a part of it – it was beautiful. I’d love to do it again!’

However, when grilled about the baby name, Jemma joked that she didn’t know and urged her sister to hurry up.

She said: ‘I don’t know the name. I don’t think they have picked one. I don’t think it will be long because we can’t call it “baby” for too long. But I would love to know too, so Stacey can you hurry up!’
