The mum-of-three started the day by sharing a video of her and Rex beaming at the camera. It's captioned: "Good morning birthday pickle."

🤍 Never let the world change your smile. Instead use your smile to change the world 🤍 I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you to each and every one of you for always being so bloody lovely. So kind and supportive. For sending messages that build people up and make them feel like they have THE best group of friends EVER. You are angels and you have no idea what difference you make to someone who sometimes need to hear your kind words. There will always be someone out there trying to bring you down. Don’t give them the power to take your smile away. The only keeper of your happiness is you. So keep it far away from harm 🤍 you deserve to be happy 🤍
Plenty of presents
Stacey wrote that it took him two hours to open his presents as "he's loving playing with each one".
The family had Mickey Mouse-shaped sandwiches, biscuits with Rex's name on them and chocolate dipped strawberries.
Stacey, who is a prolific crafter on Instagram, also assembled a balloon arch from green, gold and white balloons and built a home-made donut wall for the day.
It comes after a difficult week for the family after Joe Swash shared the sad news that his Nanny Fran had died, writing: "I miss you so much already."
