Lauren Goodger reveals her former TOWIE co-star Chloe Sims told her to wait until she was in her 30s to have kids - but loved-up Lauren doesn't believe age matters
Speaking about her relationship with Jake, former TOWIE star Lauren last week confessed: ‘I’d love for us to get married one day but I think we’ll have children first.
‘I’d love to have our kids there on our wedding day.’
And jailbird Jake was in total agreement, admitting: ‘[I’d like that to be] sooner rather than later!’
But it seems that Lauren’s former TOWIE co-star Chloe is trying to get the loved-up couple to put the breaks on their baby plans.
‘Chloe Sims offered me some relationship advice last week – she said I should wait until my thirties and until Jake is committed to start trying for a baby because if the man ever leaves you, you’re on your own looking after a child, ‘ she wrote in her New Magazine column.
And Chloe should know – she is a single mum to 10-year-old daughter Madison, and struggled in the pre-TOWIE years to make ends meet.
However, it seems as though the advice may have fallen on deaf ears, as head-over-heels Lauren also writes: ‘I don’t think age matters too much when you have a baby, there’s lots more important factors.
‘But I’m older than my sisters were when they had kids. They have the most beautiful babies and they have loads of energy because they had them young.’
She added: ‘I don’t think there’s a ‘right’ time to have kids really.’
Jake and Lauren split in 2013 after dating for a year but during her stay in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2014 Lauren admitted she was still in love with him.
Now they’re back together and things are obviously very serious between them.
So, can we expect to hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet in the Goodger-McLean household anytime soon? Watch this space…
