Speaking to OK! Magazine, Josie explained that she wishes she had tackled motherhood sooner.

She told the publication: “I said that if I had the time I’d adopt to give Reggie a brother or a sister. I love kids.

“I wish I’d started earlier. I’d have had about 10!  I was late to the party [with motherhood], but I love it.”

Despite splitting with Reggie’s dad months after giving birth, Josie went on to reveal that the pair are “amicable” when it comes to raising their son.

“I got brought up without a dad and I wouldn’t want that for my little boy,” she added.

Meanwhile, it comes after Josie opened up on her love life in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Daily!.
