Gemma Collins has revealed she wants to have a child in her forties, reasoning that she can send a positive message to ladies who ‘don’t want to rush their life’.
The Towie star, who turns 40 next year, is excited about her next chapter.
‘I would love to have a child,’ she explained.
‘It would be great for me and such a positive message for all the girls out there who don’t want to rush their life or their life has taken different a direction, like me who’s put their career first.’
She added to The Sun: ‘But in my forties I’d love everybody to see The GC walking around with a pram.’
Gem compared herself to the likes of Mariah Carey, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, and Jennifer Aniston, pointing out to fans: ‘Don’t write us off yet. We’re just beginning.’

The star explained to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford during an appearance on This Morning: ‘For someone who has felt so embarrassed for so long because I haven’t got the perfect set up, I haven’t got the children, I felt embarrassed about that in my life.’
She remained coy on whether or not she’d ever go down the adoption path though, saying: ‘Madonna done it, Angelina Jolie done it, so listen there are so many options available.
‘Without being rude, you could have a different baby every day of the week now.’
