Binky’s horror as JP wants more Ba­bies now

Her boyfriend is broody again... and she isn’t

Heat (UK) - - This Week -

She’s been open about her strug­gles since giv­ing birth to baby In­dia last year, and friends say Binky Fel­stead is in no rush to put her­self through it all again. But some­one in her life is. In­sid­ers tell heat that the former Made In Chelsea star’s boyfriend Josh “JP” Pat­ter­son is get­ting in­creas­ingly broody, and is now beg­ging Binky to ex­pand their fam­ily and move to the coun­try.

“She’s hav­ing a ma­jor freak out about it,” says a source close to the TV star, who started dat­ing JP, 28, on the re­al­ity show back in 2015. “JP is en­cour­ag­ing her to have an­other one soon. It’s some­thing he really wants, but a sec­ond baby is a huge de­ci­sion, and she’s not sure she’s ready to go for it yet. She’s scared that her ap­pre­hen­sion could cause ma­jor fric­tion be­tween them, espe­cially af­ter the first time around.”

Binky, 28, has been hon­est about her ex­pe­ri­ence of moth­er­hood, ad­mit­ting, “It felt like my iden­tity had gone.” The star, who has pre­vi­ously spo­ken about her “ter­ri­ble anx­i­ety” and low self-es­teem, also strug­gled with her preg­nancy body. “When I gave birth to In­dia, I was big­ger,” she said. “I felt dis­gust­ing. I had lost my con­fi­dence.”

heat’s source con­tin­ues, “It feels like she’s at a cross­roads in her re­la­tion­ship right now. As well as hav­ing an­other baby, JP really wants them to move out of London to the coun­try­side. Jug­gling her busy work and fam­ily life has been an up­hill bat­tle for Binky, so more chil­dren on top of this is fright­en­ing.”

As well as her TV and me­dia ca­reer, Binky also has her own fash­ion range with In­thestyle.com, is the founder of Mummy Tribe, and is also the face of a new fit­ness brand Fiit.

“Binky is se­ri­ously over­worked right now,” says the in­sider. “As well as her ca­reer, she’s feel­ing the pres­sure to stay in shape, so she’s been work­ing out around In­dia. She’s try­ing to al­ways look her best and be a great mum at the same time, but it’s ex­haust­ing.

“She feels as though she is spin­ning all th­ese plates, try­ing to bal­ance ev­ery­thing, and pals are worried that hav­ing any more chil­dren now could end up burn­ing her out if she isn’t care­ful.” n El­iz­a­beth Ryan
