He continued: "You know, I'm like on the plane with five kids, and it happens quite a lot that people look angry about it."
The actor added: "I'm always like 'Come on, mate, I'm the one with the five kids and I don't want these kids to be crying either'. Anyone who has kids has been in that situation though."
Joe's comments come after he, Stacey and their children returned from a family holiday to Turkey.
The Loose Women panellist kept fans up-to-date on their trip, posting lots of sweet holiday snaps to her Instagram.
Stacey also posted an emotional tribute to her eldest son Zach, 15, thanking him for being like a 'third parent' while on holiday.
The presenter wrote: "🤍 Biggest Brother Love 🤍 Just had to share this because it really makes me so proud. Me and Joe were watching through these videos on the way home & saying how much harder holidays would be without Zach! 😭
"He’s like a third parent who’s much more fun than us, nothing is ever too much, and we have a lot to contend with but he takes it all in his stride "
