Joe Swash reveals he's bought son Rex a DOG BED to nap in

One-year-old Rex likes to nap in dog beds rather than a cot

TV's Joe Swash has revealed that he has bought his son Rex a dog bed to nap in.

The star decided to splash out on a cosy pet bed because he and partner Stacey Solomon had discovered one-year-old Rex curled up with their pooch one too many times.

Dancing On Ice star Joe shared a series of videos on Instagram Stories showing him and his son Harry browsing a pet store for the perfect sleeping spot for Rex.

Harry – Joe's 13-year-old from a former relationship – was stunned that his dad was going through with it.

"Are you seriously about to get your son a dog bed?" he asked.

His dad replied: "Rex is really partial to falling asleep in little Theo's bed so I’m going to buy him his very own dog bed."

After wandering the aisles, the pair settled on a fluffy grey bed for the tot.

"I just can't believe you are about to put my brother in a dog bed!" Harry exclaimed.

But Joe explained: "Well I'd rather he go in his own dog bed than Theo's!"

Joe and Stacey started dating in 2016, having preciously met on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

In 2019 they announced that they were expecting a baby together and Rex arrived in May that year.

Loose Women star Stacey is also mum to sons Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight, from former relationships.

Stacey has shared the ups and downs of parenting with her fans on social media since giving birth to Rex, documenting everything from the joy of motherhood to breast-feeding and sleep difficulties and struggles with anxiety.
