‘TOWIE' Star Sam Faiers Wants Chlidren With Joey Essex

Former ‘TOWIE’ stars Sam Faiers and Joey Essex are taking things pretty seriously since recently rekindling their relationship, and the boutique owner has now revealed that she reckons she’ll have kids with the loveable lad.

Chatting to The Sun, Sam admitted that she can’t imagine starting a family with anybody who isn’t Joey, adding that she’s always loved her former fiancé - aww!

The Essex beauty was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease after being plagued by bouts of illness in the ‘CBB’ house, leaving her with worries about whether she’d be able to start a family.

“One of the first things I asked the doctor when I was diagnosed was whether I would be able to have children,” she told the paper. “I was so relieved when he said Yes.

“I definitely want to have a family – there is no rush but I can’t see myself having children with anyone other than Joey.”

Sam opened up about her joy at hearing from Joey while she was suffering from severe health issues.

"One day when I was at my lowest my phone beeped with a text that said: ‘Hiya. I read you are unwell. I hope you are okay, love Joey x’,” she said.

“Suddenly I felt so much better just hearing from him. What I was going through was so scary that what had happened with him and Amy didn’t matter any more.

“I knew right then that I still loved him.”

Sam made her final appearance in ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ during the show’s recent season finale, where she admitted Joey was one of the reasons for her departure.

Since exiting ‘TOWIE’ last year, Joey has starred in a number of ITV shows and was a huge hit with fans during his stint in the ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ jungle.
