Stacey Solomon 'feels emotional' as she fulfils childhood dream by adding rope swing to 2.5 acre garden

STACEY Solomon has opened up about "feeling emotional" as she fulfilled a childhood dream by installing a swing in her garden.

The 31-year-old, who recently purchased her "forever home" with husband-to-be Joe Swash, took to Instagram to share the exciting moment they put up the swing.

Stacey showed fans how the swing, which had been engraved with the words "love you to the moon and back", had been attached to a large willow tree in their 2.5 acre garden.

The mum-of-three detailed that she had been "so excited" for the garden toy, which was custom made for "darling boys" Zach, 13, Leighton, 8, and Rex, 1.

"We love you to the moon and back and always will," Stacey wrote to her sons alongside teary-eyed emojis as she filmed the new swing.

In another video, which showed Stacey and youngest child Rex testing it out, she joked she may have been "enjoying it more" than her children.


"As a little girl I would have done anything for a swing in the garden, I feel so emotional," the singer added. "I don't know who's enjoying it more."

The Loose Women panellist went on to post an adorable snap of her tot smiling as he sat on the swing seat as part of the "special" moment.

It comes shortly after Stacey completed her first renovation in her new home – less than one week after moving in.

Known for being a DIY guru, and regularly wowing her followers with her before and after snaps, she wasted no time in getting stuck in with her latest project.


The mum-of-three had already shared some of her visions for the property with fans, including shake-ups in the bathrooms and across the acres of land.

And after getting the wheels into motion to fix up the property's outdoor swimming pool yesterday, she turned her attention to the gorgeous stain-glassed conservatory.

Stacey today revealed that she has already transformed the floor in the space – brightening up the entire look by replacing the brown tiles with airy wood-effect laminate.

She also turned her attention to the bedroom, adding personal touches to the space including her feather-clad "Lion King mirror".


"It got a bit battered in transit. I need to dig my glue gun and stick the needs back on and fluff him up with the hairdryer," she told fans. "But I love him in here."

Loose Women star Stacey was once gain in a reflective mood after the mirror was fitted.

She posted: "Today was such a manic surreal day. And I'm just sat here thinking about how none of it would have happened if it wasn't for you all.

"Thank you will never be enough. And I'll never take for granted the moments and memories you've given me and our family."

Stacey shocked her followers with the surprise move earlier this month, having kept her family's plans under wrap in case it didn't go through.

She has been excitedly sharing glimpses at the lavish property all week, but admitted that she was scared of looking as though she is "showing off".

The Essex abode comes with 2.5 acres of land, including a large swimming pool and sweet Wendy house for her children to play in outdoors.

Stacey previously detailed that her new "forever home" is "further from the city and closer to their family" in Essex – and that it needs some "love and TLC", with the star known for her clever interior makeovers.
