Pictured frolicking on a beach on her first family holiday since baby Rex was born in May, Stacey is seen squirting sun cream at sons Leighton and Zachary while holding Rex.

Stacey, wearing swimsuit in the picture, said in her caption: "Anyone else experience the daily struggle of suncream?

"Joe found it hilarious today that I was chasing the boys around the beach trying to make sure they were topped up and rubbed in all over. Im always worrying if I’ve missed a spot somewhere! They don’t make it easy but hopefully there’ll be a payoff when they’re older and they realise I did all I could to protect their skin from harmful UVA/B rays and keep them safe in the sun! It’s so important. Thanks @bootsuk for #BootsSoltanand it’s full 5* protection # AD #Bootsuk"

Many of her two million followers were quick to shower her with compliments.

"I love your posts! So honest! I had my first baby 2 weeks after Rex and I relate to you a lot! Good on you in your bikini I didn’t dare wear mine last month on holiday!" one wrote.

Another said: “Love how you’re embracing your postpartum body.”

Love how you’re embracing your postpartum body.

"How incredibly amazing do you look? I was still trying to remember my name for months after having my baby ..... running around a beach? I could barely run up the stairs!"

Did my first full day back at work today 😬😭 so this is an appreciation post for all of those mothers who have to leave their babies and go back to work. I felt really emotional today but the reality for me was that I was able to bring Rex with me, to a job that I absolutely love, doing something I really enjoy. I sat for a long time today just thinking about how lucky I am. And I couldn’t help but spend a lot of time thinking about women with really tough jobs, ones they may not even like doing. Jobs that aren’t understanding. The jobs that don’t allow you the chance to continue to work and also allow you to include your child in some way. Those people who don’t have understanding, companionate colleagues and bosses. Those that are doing all they can to survive and don’t have a choice as to weather they ”want” to go back to work or not. I remember having Zachary and going back to college when he was this age, then I’d be straight to the fish and chip shop after college and I’d only see him before I dropped him off in the college crèche and then when I got home about 10 after my shift. I’m so lucky that thats not the case this time around (enter 1st child mum guilt 😂) But I know that that scenario and so many others are lots of people’s current reality so basically I’m in awe of you all. Your f*ing incredible. You’re raising super humans and doing a great job! P.S Rex isn’t in this project I just stole a sneaky pic of the two of us while we were both there, and I was fully made up and dressed in actual clothes 😂 P.P.S a little insta vs reality in the swipe 😂 PHOTO BY THE INCREDIBLY TALENTED @pedonomou

Earlier this month, Stacey took baby Rex to work for the first time.

Alongside two snaps of herself with Rex, the mum-of-three said she felt "lucky" to be able to bring the tot to a job she "absolutely" loves doing, and reflected on how difficult it must be for working mums with "really tough" jobs that don’t accommodate their duties as mothers.

"Did my first full day back at work today. So, this is an appreciation post for all of those mothers who have to leave their babies and go back to work," she said.
