Stacey Solomon has shared a touching message to her fiancé Joe Swash on Father's Day, where she remembered Joe's late dad.

The 39 year old former EastEnders actor Joe's dad Ricky Swash died when Joe was just 11 years old from a heart condition called Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.

Loose Women star Stacey, 31, told Joe his dad Ricky would be "so proud of the father that you are" in a heartfelt open letter on Sunday 20 June.

Stacey, who is pregnant with her and Joe's second child, shared a sweet picture montage on her Instagram story to sing Joe's praises on the special day.


The TV star couple went on a sweet family fishing trip with their son Rex, two, and Stacey's son Zachary.

She posted photographs from their special day on her Instagram story, in a sweet collage alongside the open letter.

The photos show a smiling selfie between pregnant Stacey and Joe, as well as a picture of their grinning son Rex.

Meanwhile, a third photo sees Joe smiling next to his 13 year old stepson Zachary as the pair proudly show off the fish they had caught.


Next to the collection of images, Stacey wrote a heartfelt letter to Joe, which read: "Dear Daddy, Joe Joe…

"We know you didn't get the chance to make as many memories with your daddy as you should have done…

"We know being a daddy is your most important, and special role in life, that you put everything into…"

Stacey, who recently shared her joy as her son Rex returned home from hospital, added: "I know your daddy looks down own you every day and is so proud of the father you are.

"The father, the father figure and the role model we are just so lucky to have.

"Thank you for being there for ALL of our boys. Always and Forever," followed by a black heart emoji.

Stacey treated Joe to a family fishing trip on Father's Day, which included her, Joe, Rex and Zachary enjoying a little boat trip on the river and Stacey testing out her fishing skills.
