Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are often quizzed on the matter of the patter of tiny feet way more often than most. Bless ’em, they always answer the probes politely – albeit vaguely (and why not – it’s not really anyone else’s business!).
However, Michelle’s latest response on her plans to become a mum are in stark contrast to her mother-in-law Carol’s expectations. Last week, Carol spoke to new! magazine about looking forward to having grandchildren and said it would be happening “soon”. The celeb title claims that the Essex matriarch even suggested Mark and Michelle could even be trying now.
Mark, also 29, has already admitted feeling pressure to become a father, explaining: “My mum’s on my case: ‘Hurry up and make it happen, I want to be a nan.’ I think we’ve got another year or two of her nagging and we’ll have to do it.”
But last week Michelle, 29, dropped a bombshell on those grandma hopes when she was asked about starting a family at the Pride of Britain Awards. “I love children. I always say I’m broody,” the Our Girl actress said, but quickly added: “We’re not planning anything just yet.”
