Stacey Solomon reveals "guilt" over parenting decision

She's a mum to her two sons

Stacey Solomon has revealed she regrets getting her son circumcised when he was a baby.

The TV fave is a doting mum to her two sons Zachary, 10, and six-year-old Leighton.

Stacey, 28, revealed she made the decision because it was "part of my culture" and something she was told "is better for the child".

Speaking on Friday's Loose Women, the star said: "I had my son circumcised.

"I had this exact discussion with everyone who thought there was something wrong with it.

"But it was part of my culture, something I was told is better for the child, cleaner."

She continued: "As I got older my cultural views doesn't make it any different to what it actually is.

"I started feeling guilty about what I had done and there is nothing I can do now."

Stacey often opens up about her parenting decisions.

Last week, Stacey revealed she doesn't allow her boys to go online because it "scares" her that "they could be talking to anyone".

She told the Express: "I don’t allow my kids to go online.

"It scares me to think they could be talking to anyone. When you meet someone online, you don’t know who they are, where they’re from or what their intentions are."

She continued: “They’ll probably grow up and be like, ‘My mum was so strict’.

"But what can you do? My parents were super-strict with me and I hated it as a teenager but I certainly don’t hate it looking back now.

“In fact, I’m so glad they were the way they were."

Earlier this month, Stacey opened up about the possibility of expanding her brood.

She said she's so broody her "ovaries hurt" but she's still not ready to have a baby with boyfriend Joe Swash.

In recent magazine interviews, she said the time just isn't right.

"Realistically I wouldn't have a baby right now, but I am always broody," she told Closer.

She added in a chat with Reveal about why she's so broody: "It's not even about Joe. It's just the stage of life I am at. I'm not really ready to have a baby now anyway."
