Stacey Solomon says it's '100 times harder' as she makes change to 'crazy' Paris trip amid 'mum guilt'

Stacey Solomon has admitted her 'crazy' trip to Paris has been made a '100 times harder' as she made a last-minute decision over fear of 'mum guilt'. The Sort Your Life Out host revealed last week that she had her first big work trip since giving birth to her second daughter, Belle, in February.

She confirmed at the time that she was heading for the French capital for her "craziest job ever" and would be taking her baby girl with her. "I'm going to Paris! I really can't stress to you enough how I never get jobs like this," the 33-year-old excitedly told her fans in a video posted to her Instagram Story.

Stacey then explained that while she is trying to stop breastfeeding she hasn't "figured it out" yet, so is taking Belle on the work trip. "I'm taking Belle with me because I haven't worked out the breastfeeding thing yet. I'm trying to wean her off a little bit, which is sad, but I just can't do it all," she said.

But in an update after jumping on the Eurostar and spending a day in Paris, Stacey updated her loyal followers. In a video on her Instagram Story, Stacey could be seen taking the weight off as she laid alongside a snoozing two-month-old Belle as well as Rose, one, who wasn't originally going on the whistle-stop trip.

"Bonjour! From me and the girls in Paris," she typed alongside the clip as she said: "We got here really early this morning, and did a couple of little bits I'd come here to do. And then I took them out and about on little walks and stuff."

The Loose Women star then went on to explain: "I actually wasn't planning on taking baby Rose with us, but I'm working with L'Oreal and they're so lovely," the TV favourite continued. I've come over to meet their team, because obviously it's L'Oreal Paris, and their colourist to do a masterclass. And they were like 'Rose is more than welcome to come too'.

"So I just thought, I can't not take her now, otherwise I'd have serious mum guilt," she admitted with a laugh. "I mean it is like 100 times harder with the both of them but it's been really lovely."

The proud mum-of-five, who also shares three-year-old Rex with her husband Joe Swash and has two older sons Zachary and Leighton from previous relationships, also sung her eldest daughter's praises for being "so helpful", as she gushed over her being "such a helpful little human".

"She always tries to like, if baby Belle's crying, she always tries to give her a dummy and a pat on the head. It's just the cutest thing ever." Stacey then shared a video which she captioned: "Rose in Paris," seemingly in a nod to the popular Netflix series Emily in Paris.

"Rose in Paris has been the best. It's an absolute vibe I tell ya," the former X Factor finalist added as Rose was seen walking down a number of steps in front of the Eiffel Tower. "She LOVES the stairs but my arm doesn't from abandoning the buggy and holding Belle," the star added.
