Stacey Solomon has returned to social media after being in an ‘engagement bubble’ – and was keen to show off her dazzling diamond ring.
Well, who can blame her?
Joe Swash proposed to the Loose Women star after four years together on Christmas Eve, and since then, keen Instagrammer Stacey has taken a break from social media.
However, on New Year’s Eve, the 31-year-old returned to Instagram with a sweet montage of family videos from the week.
In the black and white montage, set to a rendition of the Beatles’ All You Need Is Love, Stacey was seen cuddling her three children Zachary, 12, Leighton, eight, and one-year-old Rex, as well as her fiancé.
The kids were also seen ripping open Christmas presents.
Stacey wrote over the montage: ‘OMG I’ve missed you all so much… but I have been in an engagement/Christmas bubble. All I’ve done is play with my babies and eat.
‘We’ve been so lazy. We haven’t left the house.
‘I hope your Christmas was as good as it could be. It was such a strange one wasn’t it. But it’s a new year tomorrow. Hopefully with new hope and better days. Love you all. Missed you far too much.’
The former X Factor star then chatted directly to the camera, telling her followers she had nothing in the house organised.
Stacey joked: ‘I’ve done nothing but eat and sleep and practise hand gestures that show off my ring.’
In a fit of giggles, she then showed off her three favourite hand gestures for showing off her engagement ring – the chin scratch, ‘shocked’, and, her personal favourite, ‘have you got a headache?’
Joe, 38, popped the question with a stunning cushion cut diamond ring, and Stacey revealed that there were personal touches that gave her ‘goosebumps’.
Showing off the jewellery from every angle, Stacey wrote: ‘Sometimes I take it off just to look inside it. Because inside it are two Australian opals.
‘Opal is my birthstone and Australia is where we fell in love. It gives me goosebumps every time I look at them.’
Joe and Stacey first met in Australia as the EastEnder actor passed on the title of jungle royalty when Stacey won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2010.
However, they didn’t start dating until 2016.
In 2019, the couple welcomed their first child together, Rex; Stacey is mum to Zachary and Leighton fro two previous relationships, while Joe is dad to son Harry, 13, from his relationship with Emma Sophocleous.
Joe popped the question while on the family’s daily walk in the woods, with the actor arranging a display of roses in the clearing where he planned to propose.
Stacey confirmed she said yes by posting a picture of her engagement ring and writing: ‘To the moon and back bub. I have no words.’Credit: Original article published here.
