Kym Marsh And Boyfriend Dan Hooper Reveal They Are Considering Adoption And Surrogacy

'Coronation Street' star Kym Marsh and her boyfriend Dan Hooper have revealed they are considering adopting a child together or using a surrogate.

In an interview with this week's OK! magazine, the mum-of-three reveals she is unable to have any more children naturally because of an ablation of the womb after severe health problems.

“When they did the operation they asked me if I wanted anymore children and I said no because I was in a different place then," Kym said.

"Also, having kids for me is really traumatic; I didn’t want what I went through with Archie [Kym and Jamie’s son died moments after he was born 18 weeks prematurely in 2009]. But now I’ve met Dan we’re a bit upset as we would have loved to have kids together in the future”.

Kym added: “Our friends have already told us they’d have our baby for us! Later down the line, when we’ve had a couple of years together, we’ll think about that.”

Dan, who also has a four-year-old daughter, agrees: “We don’t know what the future holds with regard to adoption or surrogacy, but it will all make sense in the future.”

The couple first met when Dan, 31, had a few scenes in 'Corrie', but they were both in committed relationships. Kym was married to Jamie Lomas and Dan was in a relationship with 'Hollyoaks' actress Stephanie Waring.

But after meeting each other again on a night out in February, the loved-up pair moved in together after a whirlwind romance.

Kym gushed: “I’ve never been happier. I feel like a weight’s been lifted off my shoulders and it’s all because of Dan”.

“I got the idea [for moving in together] from everyone in the papers saying we’d moved in together when we hadn’t. We spent so much time together and we’d always have to be at mine as I have the kids there.”

Dan added: “It didn’t take me very long to fall in love. Kym’s amazing inside and out. We laugh all the time."
