On 5 May was Stacey Solomon's son Leighton's eighth birthday. No child would choose to spend their birthday in lockdown, without friends to play with or a proper party.
However, Stacey being Stacey she put a lot of effort into making her son's special day a memorable one too. The Loose Women star put on a celebration at her stunning Essex home alongside partner Joe Swash, son Zachary, 12 and 11-month-old Rex.
The star started by surprising her son with a corner of the house all decorated in honour of his birthday.
With blue, purple and green balloons adorning the wall in an arch shape, and many free to play with in the living room, Leighton was given cards and presents from family members.
Even little Rex gave him a card which prompted his big brother to give him a hug.

Stacey captioned the footage of her three boys celebrating, writing: "They melt me" alongside a heart emoji.
She then continued: "Happy birthday pickle we love you to the moon and stars and back again".
The next treat for the birthday boy, whose father is her ex fiance Aaron Barnham, was a slip-and-slide in the garden. The kids, including Rex, gleefully slid on the lawn, however because they did not have the right equipment the ingenious mother used a baby matt and a garden hose.
Posting on Instagram, she wrote: "Leighton wanted a slip and slide so we used a baby matt, washing up liquid and the hose, it needed a good clean anyway".
For his cake Leighton wanted a Pokémon theme, which Stacey certainly delivered on. However, although it is a cheesecake it does not sound like the most decadent offering owing to the fact that the mother of three had to use radishes to decorate it.

She then continued: "Yep he's got radish and chocolate cheesecake for his birthday its all I had. Isolation cake", alongside a string of emojis.
After the very interesting cake, then Stacey spoilt Leighton with a Daim bar milkshake which actually did look delicious.
