She was left dev­as­tated af­ter suf­fer­ing an ec­topic preg­nancy with for­mer Ge­ordie Shore flame Gary Bea­dle in 2016 – fear­ing for her fer­til­ity when doc­tors were forced to re­move one of her fal­lop­ian tubes and an ovary. And she couldn’t hide her tears on her new re­al­ity se­ries, The Char­lotte Show, in March when she dis­cov­ered Gary had since wel­comed a son, Ch­ester, with girl­friend Emma Mcvey.

But speak­ing to Closer, Char­lotte Crosby in­sists she’s not given up on her baby dreams and is now des­per­ate to be­come a mum af­ter find­ing hap­pi­ness with her Ex On The Beach star boyfriend Joshua Ritchie, 23, late last year.

FAIRY-TALE END­ING

The star – who is set to turn 28 this month – says, “I would love to start try­ing for a baby next year! I don’t want to be an old mum, I want to be a cool young mum. Hav­ing a fam­ily is the one thing in life I re­ally want – I’ve done so much with my life al­ready, and be­com­ing a mum is my dream. I want the fairy tale of get­ting mar­ried and hav­ing ba­bies – doesn’t every­one? I can see my­self mar­ry­ing and hav­ing ba­bies with Josh. He’s still quite young, though, so we’ll see!”

Char­lotte has en­dured her fair share of heartache since ris­ing to fame in 2011. Af­ter a tur­bu­lent on-off re­la­tion­ship with her co-star Gary, she went on to date re­al­ity star Stephen Bear. But the rocky re­la­tion­ship turned sour amid cheat­ing ru­mours, and the pair split for good in Oc­to­ber last year.

HAP­PIER THAN EVER

But since find­ing love with Joshua, Char­lotte says she’s never been hap­pier and in­sists this is her first “real” re­la­tion­ship. She says, “Ev­ery­thing is go­ing amaz­ingly with Josh. He’s so laid-back and I re­ally like that about him. It’s strange be­cause I’ve never been in a re­la­tion­ship like this be­fore. My mam and dad al­ways say re­la­tion­ships are sup­posed to be fun and easy, but I’ve never ac­tu­ally had that. With other boyfriends, I’ve been con­stantly wor­ry­ing and in tears every week­end af­ter ar­gu­ments with them.

“But with Josh, it’s dif­fer­ent. When you fi­nally get into a re­la­tion­ship that’s easy and stress-free, you’re like, ‘S**t. This is what it’s sup­posed to be like!’ I feel like I’ve wasted so much time be­ing un­happy. Now I know what a proper re­la­tion­ship is meant to be like, I’ll never be in a bad one again.”

She says her re­la­tion­ship with Joshua feels “real”
