Explaining what happened after her little one tripped, she told her Instagram followers: "We looked and realised it was not an 'up you get situation.

"He hurt his lip so we took him to A&E and he got some butterfly stitches put on.

"I'm going back today to get some proper stitches because it's in a really awkward place.”

Stacey later updated her followers: “The ward called and they're really lovely and they've got a bed.

“So they want us to come in tonight to make sure the stitches get done first thing in the morning with him.

"So I'm going to write a list, pack a bag, maybe have a shower, feed all the kids, and feed him up as much as I can before midnight.

“Hopefully it will get done quickly in the morning and we'll be back home. But happy, happy Monday!"

Stacey then uploaded a photo of her laptop and a to-do list, as she said: "I'm in Rex's room packing his bag and downloading Moana ... and some Friends episodes for me.”

The 31-year-old made sure to pack a big cuddly rabbit for the overnight stay, as well as a bag of snacks to keep them going.

In another post, Stacey added she was also bringing fluffy slippers, an eye mask, toiletries, spare clothes and a pillow.

This comes after Stacey told fans Rex's accident had left her fiancé Joe in tears.

She told followers: "He hurt his lip so we took him into A&E and he had some little butterfly strips put on."

"I'm going back today to get him proper stitches, because it's in a really awkward place.

"But he was so good and he didn't make a sound. He was just like: 'Yeah, fix it,' to the doctor. But he was so good."

Stacey then turned the phone to 39-year-old Joe, saying: "Joe on the other hand..."

Joe replied: "Honestly, when the kids are hurt I panic like nobody's business.”

She added: "He had to leave the room and he was crying. Bless your soul. I'll be looking after Joe today more than Rex - I love you."

Meanwhile, Stacey and Joe are expecting their second child together.

Stacey is already mum to Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine, while she and Joe share two-year-old Rex.
