Joe Swash and girlfriend Stacey Solomon: How long have they been together?

And Joe told OK! magazine: "She's lovely, she's an amazing person... I'm really lucky."

When did Stacey and Joe have baby Rex?

The couple announced they were expecting their first baby together in February 2019, with Joe writing on Instagram: "Have been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company... So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she’s just been growing a baby.

"I can’t begin to describe how happy we are to be able to share this wonderful news. We’ve been so blessed with 3 incredible children that we’ve had the privilege of raising and we are forever grateful to have the chance to become parents to another wonderful child. It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now."

They welcomed baby Rex in May, and Joe announced the news on Stacey's Instagram.

He wrote: "This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world. We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come. Mummy and baby are well and resting. We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we’ve received over the last 8 months.

I can’t believe I’m about to say this... For 10 incredible years I’ve been lucky enough to host my favourite show on telly. Being a part of the I’m a Celebrity After Show has been everything I could have dreamed of and more. But I’ve come to the decision that this year I’m going to have to leave my jungle family and stay home with my wonderful real family. I don’t want to miss a second with Stacey and our amazing boys so 3 months in Australia just seems too make to bare this year. I’m so grateful for everything the jungle has given me and for all of the people who have took me under their wing and given me memories to last a lifetime. I’ve made some unbelievable friends in fact family in oz and I’ll miss you all terribly. @antanddec thank you boys for showing me how it’s done and keeping me on my toes I’ll be watching every night missin ya both! Well It’s not goodbye forever but just for now. Thanks for the memories @imacelebrity it’s been emotional. Signing off for now and all i have left to say is... “Olly, Olly, Olly, tits in the trolley, balls in a biscuit tin. Sitting on the grass, with your finger up your arse, playing with your ding a ling a ling!”
