  • Gemma Collins, the reality TV star famous for her stints on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here and Big Brother, has revealed that she’s ‘desperate’ to have a baby.

    Speaking to The Sun, Gemma revealed that meeting Ferne McCann’s new baby girl, named Sunday, recently has made her ‘really want a baby’ – and she already knows what she’ll name her little one when the time comes.

    ‘I still really, desperately want to be a mum,’ the star confessed.

    ‘I like the name Isabella. I really like the name Isabella, but I also like the name Allegra too,’ she revealed.

    The name Allegra is a tribute to her idol, fashion designer Donatella Versace, as this is the name of Donatella’s daughter.

    ‘But I’d have to look at the child to give her a name,’ Gemma continued. ‘I hope I have a girl.’

    Opening up about her friend Ferne, and how she’s coping since the birth of her baby girl, Gemma revealed that the new mum is doing amazingly, and it just ‘loving’ being a new mum.

    ‘She is honestly amazing. She is just loving being with her baby and bonding with her baby. She looks really well and is really enjoying being a mum.’

    Talking about baby Sunday, Gemma also revealed that the little girl is set to be just like her mum.

    ‘Oh my gosh she melted my heart. I looked into her eyes and she’s just got Ferne’s spirit,’ Gemma gushed.

    ‘She’s just like Ferne. Already you can see she’s going to be a firecracker.’ Gemma’s time with Ferne and baby Sunday has left her even more broody – but the reality TV star is determined to find ‘the right person’ before she embarks on the journey to motherhood, despite previously stating that she would ‘do it on my own’ if she didn’t meet a partner.

    ‘It did really make me think “I just really want a baby”. But it has to be with the right person’ she confirmed.
