Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan to have baby 'soon'

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan will have a baby "soon."

The 29-year-old presenter's mother Carol Wright has teased that the loved-up couple, who got married last year, are thinking about starting a family together.

Asked if she wants grandchildren, Carol told new! magazine: "I will be soon, I'm sure. And they reckon they come like buses, so I know that's going to happen to me."

Prior to tying the knot, the 'Our Girl' star had been dating the handsome reality TV hunk for three years but she has admitted she's never felt more settled than after they exchanged their vows.

She said: "I do feel more settled [since we got married]. I don't know why but I feel like more of a team. You become your own little family."

The 29-year-old actress initially wanted to have four children with her beau but she's now decided that juggling her career with lots of little ones would be too much for her to handle.

She said last year: "My mum and Mark's mum keep asking when I am going to have a baby.

"After the wedding, it's the next question, but we've not thought about it much.

"I've always said I wanted four kids - but reality has set in - I couldn't deal with four! I've seen it first hand and it's hard work. We're in no rush yet."

The couple's relationship has been the hot topic of conversation in recent months as Michelle was away shooting the war drama in South Africa for 12 weeks but she's adamant their romance withstands the distance because they are best friends and have a "laugh" with each other.

She said when pressed on relationship advice: "Just have a laugh with each other. Plus, we always have a date night once a week. That's the key, being best friends and having a laugh."
