Stacey Solomon has once again proven herself to be the most relatable celebrity.
The X Factor alum, 33, has given fans a glimpse inside her morning routine at her beloved Pickle Cottage, which she shares with husband Joe Swash, 41, and their children: Zachary, 15, Leighton, 12, Rex, four, Rose, one, and five-month-old Belle.
It would be an understatement to say the video is realistic, as the Loose Women panellist takes a refreshing approach to the perfectly curated, glitzy morning routines we’re so used to seeing from influencers.
The video starts with Stacey saying: ‘Spend the morning with me, getting ready for work. I love watching other people’s ones of these.
‘Everyone always starts by turning their alarm off, but I don’t know how they do that magic without having another phone? I don’t have another phone so, you’re just gonna have to take my word for it!’
See, a relatable queen from the get-go.
After tying up her hair and changing into workout clothes while her children sleep, the presenter heads downstairs to let her dogs out.
Oh, this is at 5am, by the way!
‘As I get more into this, I realise just how boring I actually am,’ she comments.
Stacey then films herself heading to the garage for a run on the treadmill and some stretches.
‘If the kids are asleep, I’ll go down the garage and try and do some gym. Ran for my absolute life like I was being chased by the police just because I knew I was filming it and I wanted to look fitter than I actually am,’ she jokes.
‘Can honestly say, it just made me wanna throw up.’
Stacey then hops in the shower and films a short clip washing her hair, saying: ‘I tried to do one of those, in the shower, pretty videos, but I just look like a freak.’
As she brushes her teeth, she quips: ‘Then I brush my teeth with my toothbrush from the Stone Ages because I forgot to charge my electric one.’
Amazingly, as Stacey gets dressed and oils her hair, she points out that it’s still only 5:45am!
It’s understandable why the Sort Your Life Out host gets up so early for time to herself, however, as her brood soon awakens.
Son Rex is the first one up for cuddles in the kitchen while Stacey does some printing, making space in her voiceover for a cheeky dig at Joe.
‘Had to print off Joe’s scripts because 10 years of a relationship won’t teach you how to use a printer,’ she says.
The star then sets up breakfast for her children and includes a sweet clip of her little ones tucking into cereal.
‘At this point, I’ve run out of things to say, but I do love watching my kids eat for some reason,’ she adds. ‘It gives me great joy.’
‘And now it’s time for a mandatory mum guilt cuddle, all the cuddles I can squeeze in before I leave for work,’ Stacey says as she cosies up to her kids to say goodbye.
The routine video ends with her handing baby Belle over to her dad before leaving the house, with Joe pulling a less-than-excitable facial expression.
As Stacey shared the video to Instagram – where she boasts 5.7million followers – she clarified in her caption that ‘each day is different.’
Taking to the comments, her fans were truly obsessed with how down-to-earth she is.
‘You are so lovely … so refreshing to see just a lovely girl just being her normal self’, one person commented.
Another wrote: ‘You crack me up, this is by far the best morning video ever! Screw everyone else’s, you are so real and I love that about you 👊🏼😘’
‘The BEST GRWM reel I’ve ever seen! Please do more of these!’, one follower begged.
‘You are so normal and that is why we love you Stace! ❤️’, a fan added.
Oh Stacey, what a treasure you are.
