Lauren Goodger: 'I'll have a baby next year!'

Her tempestuous love life has kept her firmly in the headlines since she first hit our screens in The Only Way Is Essex six years ago – but it's clear that she's finally found her Mr Right.

In September, reports surfaced that 30-year-old Lauren was making regular visits to see convicted criminal Joey Morrison, who is currently serving an 18-year prison sentence for a series of offences, including burglary and drug dealing.

But Lauren - who will only describe Joey as a "close friend" despite the Cheshire cat smile across her face - says he's no bad boy and she's determined to spend Christmas Day with him in prison.

"He's a beautiful person inside and out," beams Lauren as she tries on a gorgeous sequinned dress. "I told him that I wanted to see him on Christmas Day and he said: 'No, don't be silly!' But I said I'd definitely be there because I want to give him something to look forward to.

"I've reached 30 and it's really changed me and made me think about what I want to do with my life. I've always been desperate for a baby but I didn't do it a couple of years ago because I wasn't ready. Now I am."

Michelle Keegan: 'I feel ready to start a family!'

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright have been through a turbulent year and have been defiantly fighting off reports of marriage problems.


But pals tell Closer that Michelle has told her husband that she is hoping to start a family together in 2017 to mark a fresh start for them.

The stunning actress, 29, has spent large chunks of the last year apart from the presenter-turned-radio DJ, 29 - with conflicting work schedules, Michelle's US career plans and rows over starting a family fuelling rumours their 18-month marriage was on the rocks.

But insiders tell Closer how Michelle is now keen to put their troubled year behind them and start a family as soon as possible.

A source says, "Michelle has been putting baby plans on hold as her filming schedule has been so full on and she's been keen to launch a career in the USA.

"After a tough year, she and Mark seem to be finally getting back on track and are in a much better place. She knows how much having a baby means to Mark and thinks the idea of creating a family unit will make them even stronger as a couple."

Louise Redknapp: 'We want baby number three after Strictly!'

She admitted that competing in Strictly Come Dancing has been the ultimate confidence boost after feeling "left behind" as her kids start to grow up and need her less.

But for Louise Redknapp, she not only became one of the show's favourites to win early on, but competing also had a huge impact on her home life too, with the former singer admitting that a baby might now be on the cards…

Mum-of-two Louise, who has sons Charlie, 12, and Beau, seven, with retired footballer husband Jamie, previously revealed: "Just when I was signing up to Strictly, Jamie went to me: 'Do you think we should go for just one more? Should we try for a girl?' I was like: 'What? Right now? Honestly, the one chance I've got to lose a few pounds and now you think it's a good idea?'"

But after saying the gruelling exercise regime has done wonders to tone up her size-10 figure, she's the first to admit that being in "Strictly shape" might make it easier than ever to conceive, saying: "I'm not getting any younger so we'll see what happens."

Danielle, 32, also feels that a new sibling for her boys - Archie, five, Harry, four, and George, two, from her marriage to footballer Jamie O'Hara - would help her with her New Year's resolution.

"Christmas is always a really crazy and busy time," smiles Danielle, who's been open about wanting a little girl this time around.

"But it's going to be so exciting in the new house and everything is going really well with Michael. We're doing up the house at the moment and trying to get everything in order.

"I'd love to get pregnant again so I can start the year off right and it would give me an excuse to stop drinking! Every single January I say I'm going to drink less or stop drinking altogether and every year I never stick to it. The boys would love another sibling and keep asking me when it's going to happen - it's so sweet."
