They’ve amassed millions of fans with their parenting reality show The Mummy Diaries. And now that they’ve got to grips with life as mums-of-two, sisters Sam and Billie Faiers admit they’re already planning to add to their broods.

Sam – mum to Paul Tony, four, and Rosie, two, with boyfriend Paul Knightley – says, "I definitely want more kids – Paul and I have always wanted a big family.

"Little Paul starts school in September, we’re moving house, and it’s my 30th this year, so I think after all that we will try.

"I want to be in a stable place to get pregnant – and I know Billie wants to wait, too."

Billie – who’s mum to Nelly, five, and Arthur, two, with husband Greg Shepherd – adds, "Greg and I talk about it all the time. I definitely want another kid, but it won’t be just yet.

"We’ve just bought a house so that’s our project right now – maybe 2021. And hopefully the timing will work so that Sam and I can be pregnant together!"

Sam, 29, and Billie, 30, shot to fame on Essex reality show TOWIE, with Sam in the original line-up and sister Billie joining in series two. They launched The Mummy Diaries in 2016 to document their journey into motherhood and family life with their partners Paul and Greg.

And Sam admits that sharing their family lives on camera has meant that they face parenting criticism regularly – most notably when Sam revealed her decision to co-sleep with daughter Rosie, while boyfriend Paul shares a bed with their son.

She says, "We’re as real as we can be on our show. There’s never been a time we’ve stopped the cameras rolling or refused to film a scene. We just want to show what our lives are like, the highs and the lows.

"I’ll be criticised by parents – I got it a lot over my decision with co-sleeping – but I realised that was my decision and I was happy with my decision, so I just learnt to ignore them all. With the criticism, you also get support and people reaching out and saying, ‘Thank you for speaking about it because I can relate’."

Viewers watched Billie and Greg tie the knot in a lavish wedding in the Maldives last year with family and friends – including best pal Ferne McCann – attending the ceremony.

And Sam – who has been with Paul since 2014 – has previously said she’d love to get married one day, but admits now that she and Paul need to work on spending one-on-one time together.

She says, "I have to be honest – I do think Paul and I need to make more time for each other. When we go out, just us, it’s often to a red carpet event, full of other people, so it’s not intimate.

"Otherwise, it’s always us four – us and the children. Life goes by so fast, so I do think we should probably have a date night once every few weeks. We said we’d do a regular date night last year, but we never got round to it, so I think this year we will."

The stars – who have denied ever getting Botox or cosmetic work – say they’d never go under the knife to alter their looks and insist that working out is more for their emotional wellbeing, rather than vanity.

Billie says, "I was never a gym person, but over the years I’ve realised that training made feel so much better.

"I feel so much happier after I’ve been to the gym. I definitely train for my mind, rather than vanity. Yes, it’s great when you feel good in an outfit, but the reason I’ve toned up is because I’ve found the great feeling that comes with exercise."

The new series of The Mummy Diaries starts on 26 February at 9pm on ITVBe.
