In the middle of the dance, Joe’s face twisted into jubilant elation as he told her he loved her – a moment Stacey counted as her favourite.
Stacey‘s fans were in tears too as they saw the candid scenes, with one, @thisismothership, exclaiming: “Cryyiinnnnggg. Can literally feel the love between you through this.”
The Loose Women star added that she had requested media outlets to make a donation to charities for bereaved children in return for using the photos.
The touching request was a way to honour Joe, who lost his father at age 11 – and Stacey’s own father also lost a parent when he was young.
Meanwhile Stacey shared a quote by children’s author Dr Seuss to sum up how she and Joe are feeling right now: “You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
