Lisa Snowdon 'left it too late' to have kids

Lisa Snowdon thinks she's left it "too late" to have children.

The 44-year-old model has admitted she'd love nothing more than to become a mother but she believes her chances of starting her own family naturally are long gone now because she never found the right partner to settle down with before she hit her 40s.

Speaking to her camp mates in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle in Thursday (17.11.16) night's show, she said: "[I don't want] children] now. It's a weird one because it's so hard. I left it kind of late. I didn't find anybody that I wanted to actually be with and I didn't want to have kids to just [to have kids], I wanted that unit kind of thing."

And, although she's dealt with the fact she'll probably never have children of her own, Lisa has admitted coming to the realisation she'll never give birth has been "hard."

She explained: "Children enrich your life so much, so of course I wanted to be a mum. But it didn't work out for me in that way. It's tricky. It is hard. It's not like I've got a heart of stone where it's like, 'No, I don't need them. I don't want them in my life.' It's been something that I've had to deal with. It's not always as simple as, 'I didn't want children.'"

However, despite never settling down and starting a family, Lisa has never been short of male attention, as over the years she's enjoyed a string of high-profile romances with the likes of George Clooney, David Walliams and footballer Jay Bothroyd.

The brunette beauty is now dating her close friend George Smart, who she met when she made her presenting debut on MTV, and is already said to be "smitten" with him.

A source said recently: "Lisa got really hurt when she split with her ex and she started growing close to George again. She has always liked him but things really took off between them at the end of last year. They went on holiday to Ibiza together in June and it made her realise how special he is. She is smitten."
