Emma Willis: 'Third child will be our last'

Emma Willis doesn't want any more children after her third one.

The 'Big Brother' presenter and her husband Matt Willis are currently expecting another baby but Emma, 40, has insisted that it will be their last.

She said: "I am happy to be entering a new decade knowing that my baby days are over. There won't be any more baby Willises after this one. I'm looking forward to a new stage of my life and to having my body back for good. I can't wait to spend time with my children and watch them grow up together. Matt is very much the 'cool dad' compared to me. He's the one who plays the games and I'm always the one saying, 'No, you can't do that', or 'Yes, I will read with you, but let me just sort this washing out first.' But I like to think I am all types of mum: 'fun mum', 'cool mum' and 'lovely mum', as well as 'strict mum', 'mean mum' and 'bossy mum'."

And Emma admitted that she and Matt, 32, were worried that they might not even be able to have a third child as it took slightly longer for her to get pregnant than with their other two kids, Isabelle, six and four-year-old Ace.

She told You magazine: "I'd assumed getting pregnant was easy and I think Matt and I both thought we were hugely fertile. Becoming pregnant for a third time wasn't too hard, but it certainly took longer than we'd hoped - there was a point when I thought, 'Uh oh, we're too old.' But because we'd never planned it before and Isabelle and Ace both just happened, we really had no idea what was 'normal' for us. Of course, approaching 40 meant there was part of me that worried about my fertility. Everything you read tells you to have babies as early as possible and warns about cutoff points. But my mum had my sister at 40 and, the way I see it, there is no right or wrong time to have a baby. You should have children when you want to and when it is right for you. Maybe it's in your 20s, your 30s or your 40s - each to their own."
