Stacey Solomon gushes over lookalike son Leighton on his tenth birthday

Stacey Solomon was a proud mum on Thursday as she celebrated her lookalike son Leighton’s tenth birthday.

The 32 year old beamed as she posted a cute photo of the birthday boy on Instagram Stories with the reflective caption: “10 today. Why does it go so fast?”

Leighton – who shares the same surname as his mum – was seen in the picture sporting a yellow football shirt and goalkeeping gloves whilst showing off a wide grin standing beside a towering red and gold Arsenal birthday cake, in honour of his favourite team, decorated with the words: “Leighton is 10”.

Stacey uploaded an amusing clip along with the photo of Leighton singing Happy Birthday to himself as he was filmed walking up to his impressive birthday cake, followed by a black-and-white snap of the 10 year old enjoying a slice after the celebrations with mum.

Stacey’s gushing post over her second eldest son comes after she revealed that her swimming pool renovation wouldn’t be completed in time for her Leighton’s birthday like she’d hoped.

When asked by a fan if the pool would be ready for the birthday boy’s special day, the Loose Women host replied: “Nope. There is a delay with the cover and also the tiling took longer, so it will be ready to fill next week but only if the safety cover arrives because I just won’t fill it before then.

“But Leighton is so excited and we just said we will have his party next week or the week after.”

Stacey shares son Leighton with ex fiancé Aaron Barnham, whom she split from in 2014 after five years together and three years being engaged.

The TV star shot to fame prior to Leighton being born in 2009, when she appeared on The X Factor and was just a mum-of-one at the time to eldest son Zachary, now 14, whom she shares with ex boyfriend Dean Cox.

Now engaged to Joe Swash with four children, Stacey has been focused on making sure her family garden and pool is renovated into the perfect space for her children to grow and play in.

She revealed during her return to Loose Women on Friday that she aims for Leighton to celebrate his birthday once the job is finished next week as she said: “Leighton is so excited and we just said we will have his party next week or the week after."
