'I'm sad I haven't had my babies' Anna Richardson reveals adoption plans with partner Sue Perkins

Anna is sad she doesn’t have her 'babies'

Anna Richardson has admitted that she is looking into starting her own 'little family' with partner Sue Perkins.

The TV presenter has always been open about her fertility struggles, after finding out on a show she was presenting in 2008, at 38 years old, that she would 'struggle to conceive'.

The Naked Attraction show host said on Loose Women today that she thought at the time: 'I've got all my eggs and a full head of hair, I'll be fine.'

But when Anna took the test as part of the C4 series The Sex Education Show, she was devastated to find out that she couldn't have children without a 'lot of IVF and help'.

Anna said she's now considering adoption

Anna admitted that she is disappointed that she doesn't have her own children: 'I am sad that I am approaching the 5-0 and I haven't had my babies.'

The 49-year-old added: 'I can't speak for Sue but I am looking into adoption.'

Anna and former GBBO presenter Sue Perkins met in 2014 at a Halloween party and have been together for three years.

The pair kept the relationship a secret for months as Anna was previously dating a man, Charles Martin, for 18 years.

Anna has previously gushed about how lucky she is to have fallen in love with Sue, who she now lives with.

Speaking to lesbian and bisexual magazine, Diva, Anna said: 'That night was one of the most extraordinary, memorable evenings where literally the planets aligned. Something was in the air that night, and that was the night we got together.'

'There was an absolute understanding between us and we've been together ever since.'

She added: 'The sexual adjustment is easy, the emotional adjustment is something else, as you know, a relationship with a woman is far more intense. This I have learnt. It's an emotional tsunami.'
