Stacey Solomon emotional as her son Rex, two, undergoes operation after accident

Stacey Solomon shared an emotional message with fellow parents this week as her young son Rex headed into surgery for a procedure.

The toddler, two, fell on Sunday while playing in the garden of the family's Essex home, which is affectionately dubbed Pickle Cottage by Loose Women star Stacey.

While Stacey initially thought it was just a small cut, she quickly realised she needed to bring Rex to the hospital, where medical staff stitched up the wound.

Sharing a picture of Rex in his hospital gown, Stacey addressed her worries ahead of his trip to the operating theatre.

"He's gone in," she said. "Thinking of all the mummies, daddies and carers and extremely brave pickles who have to do this all of the time.

"It's not nice at all. You're amazing, honestly, you really are."

Previously opening up about Rex's wound, Stacey revealed the toddler was rushed to the emergency department when they realised the severity of the cut.

"But we looked and realised it was not an 'up you get situation,'" she said.

"He hurt his lip so we took him to A&E and he got some butterfly stitches put on. I'm going back today to get some proper stitches because it's in a really awkward place."

Thankfully, it seems the routine procedure will help the wound to heal, as Stacey and little Rex return home to Pickle Cottage to rest.

Just days previously, the former X Factor star revealed she was pregnant with her fourth child, sharing the happy news over Instagram.

"We are growing another pickle," she said at the time. "We've never felt so grateful… I have no words. We didn't think we would get the chance.
