Joe has his son from a previous relationship.

His girlfriend of two-and-a-half years, Stacey Solomon, has two sons from previous relationships and Joe shares a close bond with her boys, Zachary, ten, and Leighton, six.

Stacey has previously expressed her desire to have a child with Joe.

The Loose Women star told Closer magazine last month: “I would love children with Joe and we have discussed it, but we want to make sure that our family is completely settled and in a good place before we think about extending it.”

Stacey has also spoke about wanting to tie the knot with Joe in the future.

During a previous episode of Loose Women, Stacey said: “I think you do have to compromise, because I would want Joe to compromise on everything when it comes to our wedding!

“Luckily he doesn’t mind, we’ve spoken about it and he really wouldn’t want to get involved at all so I would get to run the ship.”
