Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson may be super loved-up with former Love Island star Chris Hughes but after opening up about their relationship in a new interview, she’s admitted they’re not planning on having children anytime soon.

Jesy and Chris have become one of our fave celeb couples since going public by sharing a kiss in a kebab shop back in January 2019 but she revealed they’re still happy taking things slow and won’t be moving in together or starting a brood for a little while yet.

“I’m not really sure if I want kids," Jesy told The Sun. “It’s never really been on my agenda.

“Maybe when I’m older I might change my mind. Right now I can’t think of anything worse.”

She explained, “I think I feel like a kid myself, so it’s quite a scary thought having kids. I don’t think I’m ever not going to feel like a child myself.”
