JOE Swash has been trolled for describing his oldest son and newborn his “whole world”.
The former EastEnders actor and partner Stacey Solomon welcomed their first child together on May 23, but Joe came under fire for leaving Stacey and her brood out when he gushed over his children.
The 37-year-old actor and presenter shared a black and white photo of his son Harry – from his previous relationship with Emma Sophocleous – cradling the newborn.
He captioned the Instagram post: “In this picture is my whole world. My two boys.”
But fans were quick to hit out at the I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp! host for leaving out his partner, and her two children Leighton and Zachary, who are from a previous relationship, in the upload.
One commented: “What about Stacey?”
A second Instagrammer added: “What about Stacey and her children, aren’t you meant to be a family?”
A third slammed: “Poor Stacey what about her?”
But Joe’s fans were quick to jump to his defence.
A separate follower wrote: “Love how hes getting stick for this. Would you criticise Stacey for not mentioning his eldest son? Because that would be just as ludicrous. They are a lovely family who seem devoted to each other. The negativity really isnt necessary.”
A second commented: “These are his biological sons, I’m sure he loves Stacey’s boys as much as his own . Ffs people give the bloke a rest.”
A separate Instagram user vented: “All the trolls out there leave them alone you bullies.”
Other social media goers tried to silence the trolling and stated Stacey doesn’t always share pictures of Joe’s son Harry on her site.

One wrote: “Lots of judgy people here. Joe is allowed to announce that his boys are his world, just like Stacey did on her post. He still loves his step sons like they are his own and Stacey he will love unconditionally….. Stop phishing for stuff that’s relevant.”
Another shared: “Funny how when Stacey posts a picture of her 3 sons she doesn’t get stick for not involving Joe’s son but there;s loads on here saying about Joe not involving her boys.”
Joe and Stacey have been dating for three years, ever since they sparked up a romance in 2016.
