Gemma Collins to start trying for a baby this year

She speaks on her plans to become a mum after DOI exit

Gemma Collins has opened up on her hopes of having a baby and she has confessed that it is her partner James Argent that is keener to have one soon!

The 38-year-old appeared on Loose Women today (11 February) where she spoke about her Dancing On Ice exit and her future plans with Arg, 31.

She admitted that, although it is her dream to become a mum, her boyfriend is the one who keeps bringing it up and that they might start trying this year.

Gemma, who was a guest panellist on the show, revealed: “Arg is the one that keeps going on to me about it. Then he said: ‘I would like to be married first’.

“We’re definitely going to marry,” she continued. “He wants to do it all properly.”

Gemma has said she suffers with polycystic ovaries, and in the past she has voiced her worry about her ability to fall pregnant and that her biological clock is ticking.

Now, she says her doctor has formulated a plan for when she does start trying with Arg.

Gem revealed she will go on a medication called Clomid, which helps ovulation, and she may start using the drug at the end of this year.

She added: “I got two second opinions. Everything is going to be OK. I need to lose weight and take a drug called Clomid, which I’m looking to do at the end of the year.”

The Only Way Is Essex star explained her more laid back approach to becoming a mum is because her career is going so well.

She added that she wants to be “100 per cent settled” and able to give a child her “all” once it arrives.

The star, who lost her place on Dancing On Ice last night, also thanked the skating show for helping her lose two and a half stone, which she hopes will make it easier for her to fall pregnant.
