Stacey Solomon has revealed her ‘ultimate goal’ is to become a stay-at-home mum and take a step back from her hugely successful TV career.

After appearing on The X Factor in 2009, Stacey went on to win I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! the following year.

In 2016 she began appearing as a panellist on Loose Women and has since gone on to present Sort Your Life Out and Bake Off: The Professionals, while also being one of the stars of Celebrity Gogglebox.

However, the 34-year-old has now said she’s planning on spending more time at home with her family.

Stacey is mother to eldest son Zachary, 16, from her relationship with former boyfriend Dean Cox, a second son Leighton, 12, fathered by her ex-fiancé Aaron Barnham, and Rex, five, daughter Rose, two, and Belle, 15 months, with her now husband, former EastEnders actor Joe Swash.

She’s now said she wants to try and take on work she can mostly do from home apart from the occasional ‘passion project’.

With her eldest son about to leave school and become an adult, Stacey said she felt like she was at a ‘pivotal’ moment in her life, and she didn’t want to ‘miss what I potentially feel like I missed with my older children’ with her younger ones.

Speaking on the Glad We Had This Chat podcast, Stacey said she wanted to have more time to spend with all of her kids, which was leading her to reconsider her work commitments.

‘Each year I have a team meeting with my agent and everyone on the team to say, “What’s your plan, what’s your goals, blah, blah, blah”,’ she explained.

‘And this year when they asked me my five-year goals, I was like “I want to be a stay-at-home mum”.

‘That is like my dream, my ultimate dream. I just want to be with my kids.’

She added: ‘I mean it is conflicting, because I also want to fulfil my dreams and my goals and the things that I’m passionate about, because if I don’t have that, will I feel unfulfilled?

Stacey went on to share that what she was currently trying to do was ‘make sure everything that I work on I can work on 90% of the time at home’.

‘And then just do passion projects outside of the house, and then try and be around for them more.’

Saying that ‘all I’m going to do with the singing career’ would be performing for her grandmother once a year, Stacey said her TV work would ‘also going to be a small circle’, provided she was ‘lucky enough to carry on doing it’.

It seems Stacey has already started stepping back from her TV work after reducing her Loose Women appearances.

After taking maternity leave in 2022, Stacey has only been seen on the show a handful of times, with her co-star Linda Robson recently saying she was ‘too busy’ to return as a regular.

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV1.
