Sam Aston's family plans

However Sam, who is one of nine siblings, has since admitted he doesn't think they will have as many kids as his parents did.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, he said: "We'd like a big family. I'm one of nine children and I'm grateful to be part of a huge family as it's magical, but I'm not sure we'll go to nine. That's a lot of children and financial commitment.
