Stacey Solomon has shared an honest portrayal of motherhood, after welcoming her first son with Joe Swash earlier than planned last week.

The 29-year-old was praised by fans after she explained the first few days with their newborn havent been rosy and glossy.

Taking to Instagram, the Loose Women star – who has yet to reveal her babys name – shared a snap of herself grinning as she held her little one.

Today is a smiley day, she began to her 1.7million followers.. Its been an interesting week. But it feels like the fog is lifting and Im coming out of the fuzz. Im so grateful to have our baby boy with us and be surrounded by my incredible family – my biggest privilege.

But it doesnt mean its been all rosey and glossy. Hormone surges + really struggling to breastfeed + no sleep what so ever + engorged boobs + cracked nipples + absolutely anything as minuscule as somebody kissing my babies head = total meltdown. Ive found myself spontaneously uncontrollably sobbing into my mums arms, at least twice every day.

Stacey – who also has two sons from a previous relationship – revealed this leaves her feeling guilty.

Then I feel guilty that Im not “enjoying every second” like everyone tells you too because it passes by so quickly (and it does, my eldest is 11 and I feel like I just blinked and that happened), she continued.

But sometimes Im just not in control of my emotions, and I cant feel guilty about having sad points its counterproductive.

Im really feeling happy today which is amazing, but Im ready to accept any sobbing or sadness that sneaks up on me at any point. If it doesnt hallelujah, but if it does Im no less of a mother for feeling that way. And to anyone else feeling or who has felt that way, dont ever let those feelings make you feel that you werent good enough, you were and you are. Its ok not to be ok.

The X Factor star ended her message by thanking medical health professionals around her for all their help.

Also I want to say thank you to the amazing NHS services that we have received over the last 7 days… Queens Hospital Romford, all of the nurses, midwives and paediatricians, she added.

Our community midwives, and the breastfeeding specialist who literally MILKED me for hours trying to bring my milk down from under my chest and armpits, and the Perinatal Parent Infant Mental Health Services in our area who have been so attentive and always there if we need them.

Thinking of all of those who dont have a support system around them. If you need someone to talk to there are people out there… please dont hesitate to reach out.

And her post was instantly flooded with praise by fans, thanking her for being so honest about life with a newborn.

Absolutely love you … your so down to earth and you keep it real, one commented. Your an amazing mother wishing you and your family all the best with your beautiful new little prince xxxx (sic).

Absolutely yes to this. Its so hard no matter how you do it, how many times you do it, who you are, another said. Love that youre speaking so honestly about this and double love that youre feeling better.

Oh my love! Showing it as it is and being honest is the biggest gift you can give to the people that love you, an Instagram user wrote.

While a follower added: Amazingly sensitive and written from the heart. You set a wonderful example to others. You are a lovely genuine gem, a rare commodity in this crazy world x.

007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.

Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.

"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.

"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.

Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.

Sir Elton hits out at Russia for ‘cruel’ Rocketman censorship

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic..

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic Rocketman.

The critically acclaimed film charts the British singer's rise to fame, and its scenes of kissing and sex between men, as well as drug use, contributed to it earning a 15 certificate in the UK.

But in a bid to play down the sexuality of Sir Elton, played by actor Taron Egerton, for a conservative Russian audience, an estimated five minutes of footage was reportedly removed ahead of its debut in Moscow.

Taron Egerton on Sir Elton: 'I adore him'

The Moscow Times quoted a Russian film critic who had seen the film at its world premiere in Cannes on 16 May as saying "all scenes with kissing, sex and oral sex between men have been cut", as well as a photo displayed during the end credits featuring Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish.

Sir Elton, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, released a joint statement with the makers of the film to accuse censors of being "cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people".

"We reject in the strongest possible terms the decision to pander to local laws and censor Rocketman for the Russian market, a move we were unaware of until today," they said.

"That the local distributor has edited out certain scenes, denying the audience the opportunity to see the film as it was intended, is a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.
