There are a lot of people out there that have to suffer the pain of an overbearing in-law.
It looks like our Stacey Solomon might be experiencing a few… difficulties.
The former X Factor contestant admitted that she was really worried over meeting her fiance Joe Swash’s mother because of how close they both are.
On Monday’s Loose Women show, she chatted with the panel about ‘clingy’ parents, and then revealed that her EastEnders actor beau KISSES his mum Kiffy on the lips.
Stacey, 27, and 34-year-old Joe have been together since 2015 and she often discusses their relationship with her panellists.
The Essex gal is mother is eight-year-old Zachary, with her ex Dean Cox, and also has a four-year-old son called Leighton with her former partner Aaron Barham.
She hopes that one day her sons will rely on her.
Expanding more on her concerns she said: “When I first met Joe, I remember he kisses his mum on the lips and I thought it’s going to be one of those relationships where I have to fight to the death for my man!”
“But they’re just really close and sometimes my parents come to me for emotional support and I love that and I hope that one day my kids will come to me and I just wanna drape them!”
Joe has previously spoken to the Express about his relationship with his mum and sister and admitted that he became really protective of them after his father’s death.
He was only 11 when he died and even watched it happen.
He explained: “I witnessed what happened and I struggled to deal with it. I still find it difficult to see people crying. Suddenly I was the only man in the house and I became very protective of my mum and my sisters. I feel I stepped into my dad’s shoes.”
