Michelle Keegan talks children with Mark Wright: 'I'd love to have kids someday'

Mark Wright has had plenty to say on the subject of having children lately, and now Michelle Keegan has expressed her opinion. The former Coronation Street star said she always thought she would be a young mum, but she is in "no rush" to have a baby.

"I always thought I was going to be a really young mum. I always had in my head that I was going to have a baby at 22 or 23," she told Star magazine. "Obviously that didn't happen!"

The 28-year-old added that she would like to spend time enjoying married life with Mark first before they start a family together.

"Obviously I'd love to have kids someday. I've always wanted to be a mum, but I want to enjoy being married first and having that life with Mark. There's no rush.

Michelle's comments follow Mark's confession to HELLO! magazine that he "can't wait" to start a family with his new wife.
