Stacey Solomon has revealed that her eldest son, Zachary, will be heading to secondary school after two years of being taught at home.
Zachary, 11, has been home schooled for the past two years but will once again be putting on a uniform and heading through the school gates as a new term begins this week.
Marking the occasion, as Zachary and his brother Leighton, seven, return home from holidays with their respective dads, Stacey has shared an adorable family selfie — complete with boyfriend Joe Swash, 38, and their newborn son, Rex, who is just three months old.
The 29 year old took to Instagram to announce the news to her 2.1million followers, writing: "The boys are back in town.
"I’ve loved having some one on one time with Rex over the last 2 weeks but I can’t tell you how happy my heart is that all of my boys are back home and on the sofa giving me the best cuddles I could wish for!
"Summer is nearly over This one is an emotional one for me because after 2 years of homeschooling Zachary is off to Secondary School and I just can’t believe how quickly it’s come around.
"I’m going to make the most of the last few days of the holidays before my baby becomes a big boy! (He will always be my baby)"
Referencing the cute image she posted of the fivesome, the Loose Women panellist added: "P.S Rex’s face cracks me up!"
She also asked fans for tips before sending Zachary off to school, finishing her post: "P.P.S is anyone else’s babies off to secondary school? Or recently started? What’s your best advise, hacks, tips?"
Her adorable post comes just hours after Stacey bravely opened up on her mental health, detailing her struggle with postnatal depression after giving birth to Zachary.

She once again took to Instagram to write: "When I had Zachary 11 years ago i really struggled with the way that I felt. [sic]
"I only realised Years later when I was pregnant with Leighton and crying to my midwife because i was so anxious about giving birth and not loving him straight away (among lots of other things), that I had post natal depression. [sic]"
"I honestly believe that this time around with Rex if The perinatal mental health services and mental health helplines & charities weren’t available I would be struggling to deal with my feelings.
"Depression and anxiety don’t discriminate. I feel so passionate about raising awareness and trying to get more funds to much needed mental health services. So this is something that really means a lot to me."
However, she was then forced to call out a follower who took advantage of the post, hinting they could make Stacey "happy" through sexual activity.
The fan commented underneath Stacey's lengthy and honest post: "I can make you happy inside and out," alongside suggestive tongue and aubergine emojis.
Stacey furiously hit back: "You put out a post about Post natal depression and mental health and see this comment… WTF is wrong with people?"
Former The X Factor finalist Stacey is not the only celebrity mum anxious about her child starting school, with This Morning host Holly Willoughby announcing that her youngest son, Chester, four, would be starting primary school on Monday.
Posting a photo of three pairs of school shoes belonging to her children Harry, 10, Belle, eight, and Chester, Holly opened up to her fans about her youngest reaching the milestone.
Holly wrote to her 5.7million Instagram followers: “Back to school…who else’s front door looks like this. She added: “Big day for Chester tomorrow, 1st day of school…
“Good-luck to anyone else starting their school journey…can’t believe he’s at this stage already," the doting mum continued.
Holly, who is also set to return to This Morning alongside co-host Phillip Schofield after their summer break on Monday, received more than 78,000 likes on her post, with other mums speaking about their children also starting or going back to school next week in the comments section.
