Former TOWIE star Ferne McCann has revealed she’s considering renaming her show First Time Mum… and we smell a baby hint.

Opening up about her boyfriend Albie Gibbs, who she first met while on holiday in Dubai in 2018 and has been dating since last year, Ferne isn’t coy about admitting her plans for the future, saying, “When you’re in love with someone, you think about the future and getting married and having more children, and he has definitely made me feel like that.

“We haven’t spoken about it, but me being me, I’m like, ‘Yeah, we’re going to get married and have children,’ and he doesn’t even bat an eyelid. He’s like, 'Alright, Ferne!' He’s made me see a hopeful future. I’m happy."

Speaking of her reality show, now in its fifth series, she added, “The name will have to change when I decide to have my second child because then I’ll be a second-time mum.”

She left the reality show after the second series, but Amy became the first TOWIE millionaire just a year later in 2012. In 2017, the 28-year-old welcomed daughter Polly with ex Bradley Wright, then gave birth to a son a year later with her boyfriend Ritchie. That same year, she was said to be worth £5m through her mummy and fashion ranges, eyelashes and perfumes.

Sam and Billie Faiers

Sisters Sam and Billie quit the show in 2014 and 2016 respectively and have gone on to launch their hugely successful ITVBe spin-off series The Mummy Diaries. Aside from their reality success, Sam – who is mum to Paul, three, and Rosie, one, with partner Paul Knightley; and Billie – who has Nelly, four, and Arthur, two, with husband Greg Shepherd – have made an estimated joint fortune of £7m through clothing brand collaborations and sponsored social media posts.

Ferne McCann

After leaving TOWIE in 2015, Ferne became a household name on I'm A Celeb!. She welcomed daughter Sunday in November 2017 as a single mum, after her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins was jailed for an acid attack. She gained an army of fans after documenting her emotional journey on her reality series First Time Mum. Ferne, 28, also has a clothing line with MissPap and a fitness DVD, and was said to have raked in almost half a million in 2017 alone.

But now Ferne is considering co-parenting for the first time, telling OK! magazine, “Being a single parent, I’ve always said I can’t imagine parenting with someone else because that’s not been my experience so far. But being so in love with Albie, I do feel like he’s the one.”

But things haven’t always been easy raising Sunday alone, and in 2018 Ferne opened up to Closer about the “tough” side of single parenting, saying “While I was pregnant, I knew I was going to be a single mum, but it didn't hit me until I actually had Sunday.

"That was tough to deal with - realising I really was totally on my own.

“I don't have another person to confer with, I don't have another person to discuss my day-to-day decisions with – like choosing what food she has, what she does every day. It's tough."
