Stacey Solomon has ruled out having more children because she and husband Joe Swash are struggling to be good parents to their blended family of six.
The 33-year-old Loose Women panelist opened up to her 5.7million social media followers during a live Instagram concert on Wednesday as she dyed her hair.
The mother-of-five has ruled out expanding her family at the moment, but said it would be a “dream to take care of” when she and Joe are older and their children are grown.
Stacey explained: “Me and Joe talked about this when we were away for the night. We couldn’t have any more children.
“At this point we’re having a hard time, to say the least, being good parents and working and everything else in between.” So no, not at the moment.’
‘We might not have any more children’: Stacey Solomon has ruled out having any more children as she and husband Joe Swash are ‘struggling to be good parents to their blended family of six’.

Stacey is a mother to sons Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, from previous relationships, as well as sons Rex, four, Rose, 22 months, and Baby Belle, five months, who she shares with Joe.
Joe, who tied the knot with Stacey at their home Pickle Cottage last year, also has 16-year-old son Harry with his former partner Emma Sophocleous.
Stacey continued, “But when we’re older.” Because when we walked away, we kind of thought, ‘Oh god, one day this will be us, just the two of us,’ and we have such a big family that it’s in the house is never still and we are never alone.
“And we said, ‘Oh, it’s going to be sad when it’s just the two of us and all the kids are gone,’ so I think I’d love to do that.
“Joe’s mother is going into foster care and I would like to one day become a foster child too when we are older and all the children are grown and moved out. That would be our dream.”
Stacey previously admitted that she is taking every precaution to avoid becoming pregnant again.
The TV personality said in an Instagram video: “I have to say me and Joe had the best time together.”
“I think sometimes when you’re in the thick of things and we all have kids and I’m working and then he’s working and then we’re tag-teaming, it all gets a little tense.”

“So yeah, those little 36 hours together just made me love him so much. ‘Not that I didn’t love him before!’
Then Joe showed up and Stacey told him she “forgot” how funny he was because they were both so busy with everyday life.
She continued: “We’re on a short vacation and we really love each other.” We kissed yesterday and the boys were like, “Urgh! You disgust me!”
‘Oh, for those of you who text me that this is baby number six – no, no, no!’ Don’t worry, we’re taking every possible precaution to make sure that doesn’t happen!’
