Stacey Solomon paid a sweet tribute to her son on his 14th birthday.
The 32-year-old mother of four took to Instagram on Monday to post an emotional message for her eldest child as she recalled becoming a teenage mom in 2008.
The Loose Women star described how being pregnant with Zachary had given her “purpose” as she uploaded a series of adorable home videos.
Her post read, “Happy Birthday Zachary. It definitely wasn’t a coincidence. The truth is that you changed my whole life.
“I could never have understood the light and love you would bring. What they said about us at 17, what they didn’t know, was that you were my beginning, my reason, my only purpose, to stand up and do my absolute best.”
She continued, “And you’ve been by my side ever since. It would never have happened without you. Zachary, I am so proud of the man you are becoming and the kind, caring, amazing person you are. We did it, Zachy.
“14 years my darling to the moon and back forever and ever.”
Stacey’s fiancé, Joe Swash, was among those who hit the post’s comments section. He wrote: “Happy birthday son. Thank you for being such a special man. We love you.”
Zachary’s father was Stacey’s childhood sweetheart, Dean Cox. Four years later, she welcomed son Leighton to her ex-fiancé Aaron Barnham.
She also shares son Rex, two, and daughter Rose, five months, with Joe, while the former EastEnders man has son Harry, 14, from his engagement to Emma Sophocleous.
Stacey shared other heartwarming messages for her son in her stories. In connection with her new post, she called her son a “real angel of life.”
She added, “The truth is that every year on Zachy’s birthday I spend most of the day getting upset.
“When I got pregnant at 17, I never imagined that a real angel would be born into my life. He pushed me to do my best, never give up and always support me in everything.
“Zachary, it wasn’t a coincidence. You are so special and every year with you has been the greatest privilege I could have ever imagined.”
The mother-son duo ended the day off by watching episodes of Friends together and eating personalized chocolates.
Stacey uploaded another black and white picture of the couple’s legs stretched out on the coffee table while their pooch lay next to them.
She wrote: “Everyone is asleep. Me and Zach watch old episodes of Friends and eat his birthday chocolate. Thank you for all your lovely birthday messages.
“We’ve read them all. It made Zachy’s night better. I love you.”
