Megan McKenna wants a baby soon
Megan McKenna wants to have a baby within the next four years.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star has only just rekindled her romance with her boyfriend Pete 'The Pirate' Wicks after she caught him sending seductive messages to a series of girls behind her back but, despite the betrayal, she's keen to settle down soon.
Speaking to Now magazine, the 26-year-old beauty said: "I'd really like to have kids before I'm 30 so I think I need to have kids by the time I am 28.
"I have a good four years before I need to think about it! Basically I want to be able to have my career and my business all around me first. I want to feel satisfied with what I am doing professional before I settle down and have children."
And, although she was undecided for a while as to whether she could trust Pete again after his infidelity, the brunette beauty is happy with the way things are going for them.
She explained: "I'm going to take each day as it comes. We're just like any normal couple - there's going to be s**t times , but there's also going to be amazing times."
The couple began dating in February after Megan joined the hit ITVBe show but she has admitted, although she's grateful for the opportunities that have come her way since joining the programme, her relationship works better when the cameras are off.
She said: "It's not as much pressure when you're off screen. When you are on screen, everyone's judging you. I'm happy where I am now. Being together is a bonus."
And Megan's family - who shunned Pete when his cheating antics were revealed - have decided to welcome the 28-year-old hunk back into their home with open arms.
She said: "My family are happy when I'm happy so, yes, they've forgiven him. They never disliked him, they were just angry and disappointed with him."
