Stacey Solomon rushed her son Rex to hospital after the two-year-old suffered a 'nightmare' fall at home.

The Loose Women star, who is pregnant with her fourth child, said her toddler son needed medical attention after injuring his mouth.

Stacey said Rex fell over in the garden on Sunday and initially she told him to get up.

"But we looked and realised it was not an 'up you get situation'", she told her Instagram followers.

"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 put in because it's in a really awkward place," added Stacey.

The mum said Rex was 'so good' and 'didn't make a sound' after hurting himself.

"Joe on the other hand, did not enjoy it," laughed Stacey.

The TV star said Joe was so upset he had to leave the room.

"I'm going to be looking after Joe today more than Rex," she joked.

Stacey blamed the incident on her social media absence over the weekend as she concentrated on taking care of her family rather than her usual posting on the site.

Rex's accident came just after the mum had enjoyed a few nights away from her kids on a relaxing spa break with her sister.
