STACEY Solomon twinned with her baby son Rex after admitting she’s been battling anxiety since giving birth.
The telly star, 29 – who welcomed Rex, her son with Joe Swash, in May – wore matching animal print trousers as she and her baby boy posed on cushions that were shaped like giant jigsaw pieces.
And she confessed she and Rex even went out looking alike.
She wrote on Instagram: “Matching with my pickle before he grows up and realises how uncool it is!
“Not embarrassed to say we actually left the house and went out like this.
“I love how he is almost smiling in these pictures too! If you’re wondering what the lumps in my top are just above my waist line, they’re my boobs haha They live there now happy Saturday everyone!”
It comes after Stacey revealed she’s “struggling with crazy thoughts” and getting help from mental health charity.
She recently wrote: “Couldn’t keep my mind still today. It was wondering off into some strange places.
“After spending the morning googling every which way to switch my brain off i came to the conclusion that because lavender was mentioned in almost every “keep calm remedy” that I needed to visit a lavender farm.
“I don’t know what I thought would happen. Maybe I’d roll around in it and breath it in so deeply that my thoughts slept for a while.
“The lavender didn’t get rid of my anxiety but it was beautiful and for the hour I spent picking it I definitely thought less about anything scary and more about how to cut the right bits and survive the killer bees.
“So, in conclusion I probably didn’t need to force Joe to drive me 45 miles to our “closest” lavender field but I’m glad I did.
“It got us all out of the house.
“It was breathtakingly beautiful and it took me away, even if just for a couple of hours, from the dread.
“If anyone reading this feels the same, getting out and occupying your mind might help, it does with me sometimes.
“Also if you need it, there’s lots of people out there to talk to. @mindcharity @pandas_uk or look up PNMH teams in your area, I’m not ashamed to say I speak to someone from my local team regularly.”
Stacey also said she was counting her leg hair to keep her distracted.
She shared a string of pictures of the countryside, tagging the first one: “Cray cray.”

After spending the afternoon in the fields, she wrote: “Picking this stuff is like meditation I swear!
“It’s actually hard to think about anything other than which flower you want, where to cut it and how to avoid the masses of giant bumble bees.
“High recommended to anyone struggling to stop those crazy thoughts taking over.”
Last week Stacey left the house for the first time in four weeks since giving birth to Rex.
The previously admitted that she was scared to go outside with her “vulnerable” newborn in case it was too “dirty”.

But she was forced to push herself to go out for a walk while her boyfriend Joe Swash was away filming in Italy.
Unfortunately for the 37-year-old ex-EastEnder, Rex shared his his first smile while he was away.
He wrote on Instagram: “How is my luck. I had 2 go away for work and Rex has his first smile, gutted.”
After he’d finally got back, Stacey told fans: “Daddy’s home – love the summer but I’m so glad daddy’s home and it’s cooled down now and we can all relax!
“P.S any advise on how to keep them cool in this heat would be much appreciated.”
