The famous couple share six children, with the pair welcoming three children together in four years.

The family unit is composed of Stacey's two sons, Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 10, from past relationships with Dean Cox and Aaron Barnham respectively, while Joe has son Harry, 15, from his romance with Emma Sophocleous. Together, they have son Rex, four, in May 2019, 22-month-old daughter Rose and six-month-old daughter Belle four months later.

The former 'EastEnders' actor loves having a big family, but thinks that six is the limit and his 33-year-old wife has subtly suggested that he sees a doctor to take care of the matter.

In an interview with Closer magazine, Joe, 41, said: "We love our family unit and all our kids. But we've got to put a cap in it somewhere. I think six is a good number.

"I think the snip could be on the cards. I'm trying to fight it, but it’s a losing battle – Stacey keeps telling me it's reversible, and that's a big hint!"

Joe and Stacey met in 2010, when the former 'X Factor' contestant appeared on and won 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!' whilst Swash was hosting the spin-off show 'I'm A Celebrity... Extra Camp'.

Their relationship turned romantic in 2015, and Joe proposed to former 'Loose Women' panellist Stacey in December 2020, with the couple marrying in July 2022.

In March 2021, the happy family moved to Pickle Cottage in Essex – estimated to be worth £1.2 million - and with so many kids under five in the house, Joe admits home life can be manic.

He shared: "It's going all right – it's a busy house, but it's exactly how we love it. We love kids, and ours seem to be particularly amazing."

When asked about the key to a healthy and happy family, Swash answered: "There is a lot of love, and we love all the kids the same. Our kids are all so close. My eldest – from another relationship – and Stacey's kids, they all get on, so it's brilliant. We're a big unit."
