Stacey Solomon has admitted that she’s currently in the middle of a ‘non-romantic era’ with her husband Joe Swash.
Joe had already won the reality series in 2008 before going on to present spin-off show Get Me Out of Here Now!, where he met Stacey backstage.
In 2016, the couple announced they were together before welcoming their first child in 2019 and becoming engaged during the pandemic, in December 2020.
The famous pair have since had two more children and were married in July 2022 in a small, private ceremony at their home, Pickle Cottage, in Essex.
A year on from tying the knot, however, Stacey has admitted that dedicating so much time to parenting has gotten in the way of their intimacy.
‘I think me and Joe are in our non-romantic era. It is important just to get time for us, but we’re at that stage in our life where that’s not really possible.’
Speaking to OK Magazine, she continued: ‘We recently went to a friend’s wedding and had a lovely night together, but outside of that it’s once or twice a year.’
Stacey also admitted that after third child Belle – Stacey’s fifth overall, and Joe’s fourth – was born in February, they won’t be having anymore kids.
‘We don’t want any more – we cannot cope with it. We wanted all these kids and we’re so grateful to have them. So we will get romantic – but in 20 years’ time.’
Joe has one son, Harry, from a previous relationship, while Stacey has two boys, Zachary and Leighton – and she says that five children is enough for her.
‘Having five kids and two dogs, I get through so much. When you’ve got a big family, it’s relentless,’ she added, talking about her busy home life.
On Sunday, Stacey said she was ‘forever grateful’ to share loving moments with her family after sharing photos her and her son Rex enjoying a swim.
