Stacey Solomon has shared her two-year-old son Rex's surname for the first time.

The 31-year-old Loose Women panellist posted a pic on her Instagram Story from Rex's hospital bed, as the little one continues his recovery from a nasty accident that required stitches to his mouth and lip area.

Stacey, who is pregnant with her fourth child, has now posted a pic of her son as she reveals that he is on the mend and will be heading home soon.

Most tellingly in the snap is that for the first time, Rex has his surname on display as it is written on his hospital wrist band.

Stacey shares him with fiance Joe Swash and on the wrist band it shows that their son has a double-barrelled surname.

This means he is officially named Rex Toby Francis Solomon-Swash.

The former X Factor star also paid a gushing tribute to the NHS and its staff who helped her and Rex over the past few days, as she announced that they will be heading back home soon.

She posted a pic of her cuddling her son on her Instagram Story and captioned the snap: "Everything went so well. We will be back home soon.

"Thank you for your lovely kind messages. Thank you to everyone here @bhrut_nhs from giving birth here to fixing the pickles your staff and everyone who works so hard in your trust have always been so amazing."

Stacey continued: "And I know first hand how busy and hard worked you all are. So grateful to our NHS always and forever…

"Thank you for all that you do. You’re so incredible. And we are so lucky to have you."

While Rex was in surgery, Stacey had been keeping herself busy by having a jacket potato for lunch and watching films.

She had decorated Rex's hospital room with a fake plant and some blankets to make herself feel more at home.

The mum-of-three told her fans: "Honestly, I can't tell you what a fake plant and a blanket do to a room.

"It makes me feel so much less worried when I bring home things with me to these places.

"Thank you all for being so lovely."
