Gemma Collins has revealed she wants to adopt a number of rescue animals before she decides to have a baby with Rami Hawash after previously sharing her desire to start a family with her boyfriend
Gemma Collins wants to adopt some rescue animals before she has a baby.
The former Only Way Is Essex star recently spoke of her desire to start a family with boyfriend Rami Hawash but she has now made a u-turn on her family dream and instead wants to look at getting a dog with her partner.
Gemma feels “grown up” enough now to have a dog and thinks she’s got the stability and responsibility to raise one.
“At 40-years-old I have my home now, I feel a bit grown up and I know I can be more than responsible to look after an animal. I think that is what is so important when considering getting an animal.
“Now that I’m feeling settled, I’ve got my partner, I’ve got my home, I really miss having animals in my house.”
Gemma says her “lifelong dream” is to have a whole garden of rescue animals.
She added: “I’ve been weighing up this decision for about a year-and-a-half now, part of me goes that I can give a dog and cat a lovely home. I would love to have a whole garden of rescue animals. That is my lifelong dream.
“Then my serious side kicks in and do I have the time? I know I can give it all the love in the world, I know I can pay the vet bills, I know I can give it cuddles. I would love this dog forever and it would be part of my family.”
“I’m probably getting broody, so I’m like shall I get the dog first and then the baby,” she continued.
Gemma had previously vowed to have a baby next year and planned to make a documentary about it.
“I’m ready for a baby. I am going to try next year,” she told the Daily Star newspaper. “I’m really excited about it.”
“That’ll be the next show I do, Gemma Collins: Making The Baby.”
She says she has finally found The One who she wants to start a family with.
She added: “We dated years ago when we were younger and we were more fiery then. I was just starting out on The Only Way Is Essex. But now I’m very settled and very happy. And he was there all along.”
