The television personality explained all her sons get a special chair for their birthdays and Rex’s favourite place to sit is the egg shaped chair in the garden.

The media star then revealed the selection of presents she had bought for the tot, including his own toy phone and TV remote, were to stop him from ‘stealing’ theirs.     

Stacey wrapped the gifts in brown paper and string and told followers that she does not use sellotape so as to do her bit for the environment.

Stacey told her followers she was making Rex’s birthday cake herself but, encountered trouble with the icing when her electric whisk broke. 

She hilariously revealed she attempted to use a potato masher to complete the job before giving up and using shop bought icing.

But her problems did not stop there, in the next story, Stacey said she was ‘laughing so she didn’t cry’ at the finished result.
