Celebrity Big Brother housemate Dan Osborne’s mum is desperate for him to reunite with wife Jacqueline Jossa and have more kids.
In an interview with The Sun, the ex-TOWIE star’s mother Toni said she would “absolutely love” for Dan, 27, and Jacqueline, 25, to sort out their differences.
She called them a “good couple” and “really good parents”.
Dan and Jacqueline began dating in 2014 and married three years later, but experienced a rocky patch earlier this year which saw Dan temporarily move out of the marital home.
Toni told the newspaper: “What I would really love to see is for Dan to get back together with Jacqueline – I would absolutely love it. They make such a good couple and are really good parents.”
She added that she hopes Dan and Jacqueline – who are parents to three-year-old daughter Ella and newborn baby Mia – will “have another” child one day.
Dan is also dad to son Teddy, four, from a previous relationship.
He’s made no secret of the fact he’s missing his three kids while locked up in the Celebrity Big Brother, which he entered back on August 16.
In a recent episode of the show, viewers saw Dan break down in tears after receiving a letter from home written by Ella with Jacqueline’s help.
Toni said: “He loves his children to bits and I can see he is really missing them – and they’re missing him too.”
She said Dan only signed up for CBB as a means of supporting his family.
Meanwhile, former EastEnders star Jacqueline confirmed last week that things are going well with Dan but they aren’t “officially” back together yet.
She told OK! Magazine: “We’re not officially back together but he’s living with us so we spend every day together, and we’re getting on really well.
“It’s hard for me to discuss my relationship when we haven’t had a chance to talk about it properly. I don’t know what the future holds. Dan is my family and no matter what goes on in our marriage that won’t change.”
Jacqueline also admitted the timing of CBB wasn’t great as it meant Dan leaving the family for weeks just as they were starting to work things out.
“It’s a shame he went on the show while we were still figuring things out,” she said. “The timing wasn’t great for us but I told him that if he felt like it was something he needed to do then I’d support him wholeheartedly.”
