Stacey Solomon pays tribute to eldest son in sweet Instagram message

She shared an emotional post about motherhood

Loose Women star Stacey Solomon has paid a special tribute to her son Zachary on his 11th birthday, and in it she opened up about becoming a mum at a young age.

The 29-year-old star wrote her son a special birthday message on Instagram, saying that she can’t “remember” life without him.

Stacey revealed that her and Zachary have “been through it all” after she had him when she was 18 years old.

She also shared an old photo of her cradling Zachary in the hospital right after he was born.

The star, who also has six-year-old Leighton, began by writing: “Zachary, I can not remember life without you. I can not believe you’ve been in my life for 11 years today. I remember and cherish every second of it. We’ve been through it all together.”

Stacey recalled how she got through college with Zachary and would drop him off at the college creche while she studied.

She also thanked her son for being her motivation to apply for the X Factor.

Her determination saw her reach the semi-finals of the show in 2009.

The I’m A Celebrity winner continued in her post: “…to the Xfactor where you were the drive for every push I needed to give myself to go as far as I could. To the jungle where knowing you were only a stone throw away and before long I’d be able to squeeze and cuddle you and hope that I’d done you proud.”

Stacey added that Zachary is growing up to be a “kind and funny” boy and the “best” big brother to Leighton.

She concluded: “You have no idea what you’ve done for me and brought to my life and you probably never will. I hope I can raise and guide you the way that you deserve to be and you continue to be a shining light in the world beaming with happiness. Happy Birthday Zachary! Here’s to the next 11 years of memory making! I love you to the moon and stars and back again. 💜.”

Zachary, I can not remember life without you. I can not believe you’ve been in my life for 11 years today. I remember and cherish every second of it. We’ve been through it all together. Graduating college where you would come with me every day and be such a good little bubba in the college crèche while I studied, to the Xfactor where you where the drive for every push I needed to give myself to go as far as I could. To the jungle where knowing you were only a stone throw away and before long I’d be able to squeeze and cuddle you and hope that I’d done you proud. To becoming a big brother. And might I say the best big brother that’s ever lived. Kind, caring, loving, Leighton is a very lucky young man. To blossoming into the, incredibly thoughtful, compassionate, empathetic, strong, funny, happy, human you are today. You have no idea what you’ve done for me and brought to my life and you probably never will. I hope I can raise and guide you the way that you deserve to be and you continue to be a shining light in the world beaming with happiness. Happy Birthday Zachary! Here’s to the next 11 years of memory making! I love you to the moon and stars and back again. 💜
