Mark and Michelle: baby blues

As he pines for fa­ther­hood, she puts work first

Now (UK) - - COME ON IN... -

You would have thought Michelle Kee­gan was al­ready up the duff from the way Mark Wright was gush­ing about their baby plans on This Morn­ing.

The 31-year-old couldn’t help telling view­ers about his hopes to start a fam­ily as he and pop star Mol­lie King filled in for Holly Wil­loughby and Phillip Schofield.

‘I can’t wait to be a dad, I love kids!’ he said, be­fore re­veal­ing he’d spo­ken to new mum Alex Jones about par­ent­ing.

‘She’s just had a child and chil­dren hope­fully will be some­thing that hap­pens to me in the fu­ture,’ he added.

But while Mark’s plans seem like a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion for the cou­ple – who have been mar­ried three years – just weeks be­fore, Mich, 31, shut down the idea of hav­ing baby.

Fea­tur­ing on a pod­cast, she said, ‘This is why when peo­ple say, do I want a baby? I’m just not ready for that.’

Their ap­par­ently con­flict­ing views have led fans to believe Mark might be strug­gling to con­vince his wife to start a fam­ily.

‘Thought the mis­sus wasn’t ready for kids?’ one asked. ‘They’ve been talk­ing about kids for years. He can’t seem to con­vince her can he?’ an­other piped up. Ouch!

And it looks like Michelle’s boom­ing ca­reer might have some­thing to do with that. Hav­ing landed a role on new Sky One com­edy Bras­sic, which she started film­ing last week with co-star Damien Molony, it seems Mark might have to wait a lit­tle longer for his dream fam­ily...

‘I’m just not ready for that!’

Can the cou­ple agree on settling down?

Mark shared his fam­ily plans with Mol­lie King on This Morn­ing!
