The 'Only Way is Essex' star has previously said she and Greg Shepherd - with whom she has 20-month-old daughter Nelly - want to marry before having more kids, but following the arrival of her nephew Paul three months ago, the blonde beauty is feeling broody.

She said: "I'm so ready for a second now and I don't want too big a gap between Nelly and our next baby so I need to get going now. Greg and I have decided we'll get married after we have another baby, we think it'll be nice to have both children at our wedding. Then, in a few years, we might think about having a third - three is a nice number."

And Billie's sister Sam - who has Paul with partner Paul Knightley - is keen for her sibling to have another baby and expects it to set a pattern.

She told Closer magazine: "It would be amazing, I would love it. But the time Billie has had her baby, I'll be like, 'Right I'm having another one.' It's going to keep going in a pattern like that. We've always said we wanted our kids to all grow up together and be roughly the same ages."
