Stacey Solomon has hinted she might consider being a full-time mum in the future. The 34 year old telly favourite, known for her roles on 'Loose Women' and as a mum to Zachary, 16, Leighton, 12, Rex, five, two-year-old Rose, and 15-month-old Belle with her other half Joe Swash, has expressed her confidence in her parenting skills, saying she's a "phenomenal" mum whether she's working or at home.

Chatting on the 'Glad We Had This Chat' podcast with Caroline Hirons, Stacey declared: "I'm a phenomenal mum. I'm done with mum guilt. If you're the mum who loves to be out at work, and I'm the mum who's like, oh, I love playing at home. They're both good mums. I don't understand why one is better than the other in my opinion."

She continued to explore the idea of changing roles over time: "Whatever phase of life I'm at, I might be this mum right now. But in two years time, if, let's say, I've decided to stay at home and never work again, I might be like, I want to go back to work. Does that make me a bad mum? No, no, it makes me a human that my children can see that I am still a human being. Not just mum."

"I'm not a mythical creature with no feelings and no ambitions."

When quizzed on the possibility of expanding her brood, the 'Loose Women' star didn't give a clear-cut response but did mention that her youngest, Belle, wasn't planned.

She revealed: "Oh, no. I have. I have and I haven't [thought about more kids.] But even we were shocked at Belle because we weren't planning to have another baby. We were definitely planning a break."

"Rex and Rose were only a couple of years apart and Rose was like six months old. But yeah, well, apparently you only need to have sex once and you'll get pregnant."
