Jennifer Metcalfe doesn't want to get engaged.

The 'Hollyoaks' actress welcomed her baby son Daye into the world six weeks ago with her partner Greg Lake and, although the couple are now living together and want to get hitched in the future, she has admitted she's not fussed about a big proposal.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "I've thought about it and we probably won't get engaged. We'll just be like: 'Shall we just get married?' We're that relaxed about it."

Greg added: "It will come but at the minute our focus is just on Daye."

But, although they're not in any rush to walk down the aisle, the pair have already decided on what kind of wedding they want and will probably just text their friends on the day rather than sending out official invitations to loads of people.

Greg said: "Because Jen's dad passed away when she was young, I want Daye to take his mum down the aisle. We want all our close friends and family.

"I want to wear a linen suit and have it on the beach with a live band, a big old school barbecue with proper chefs, and a little bar. It will be amazing. The invites will just be texting all our good friend saying: 'Do you want to come?' "

And the couple are keen to have another baby in the future.

Greg said: "One more - a girl would be nice.

Jennifer added: "It's just the pregnancy. Labour and sleep deprivation aren't as bad for me as the pregnancy. As soon as he was born, I was like, I want to do this again - but now I'm not so sure. We'll see!"
