Stacey Solomon was left in tears after her son Rex finally came out of surgery.
The Loose Women star, 31, had an anxious wait in hospital on Thursday while her youngest boy, two, had to have an operation on his mouth.
Last weekend, Rex suffered what she called a "nightmare" fall and had to have stitches, and he's been in and out of hospital over the last few days.
Earlier on they had cuddled in Rex's hospital bed as he waited to go into surgery, and she returned a few hours later to share her joy that he was awake after his op.
She shared a photo of herself holding tightly on to Rex's hand.

The toddler was still in his hospital gown and wearing his bracelet as he recovered from the surgery.
"I got my pickle back," Stacey captioned the photo, adding big eyes and crying emojis.
"Love you all to the moon and back," she finished the post alongside a string of tearful emojis.
She added in another post: "Everything went so well. We will be back home soon."

Stacey also thanked the hospital, where she revealed she had given birth to her children.
The TV star said: "From giving birth here to fixing the pickles, your staff and everyone who works so hard in your trust have always been so amazing."
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."
Before Rex had gone in for his operation she seemed understandably worried.

"He's gone in," Stacey told her Instagram followers. "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," she went on, adding sad face and black love heart emojis.
"You're amazing, honestly, you really are."
Rex suffered a fall in the garden of Pickle Cottage in Sunday, and Stacey originally thought it was nothing.

"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."
She admitted it had been difficult to make Rex keep his temporary stitches in while he waited for surgery.
His accident came just days after Stacey announced that she is expecting her fourth child
