Professor Green hints he's too old to have children with wife Millie Mackintosh

Professor Green may only be 31 years old, but the rapper believes he has left it "too late" to start a family. The musician, who is married to former Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, hinted he was too old to start a family while promoting his new autobiography Lucky.

"People used to get married at 20 and have a baby at 21," he reportedly told the Daily Star. "That's better than leaving it too late like now."

The comments may come as a surprise to Millie, who previously told HELLO! that she would like to have children in the next few years, adding that she thinks her husband, whose real name is Stephen Manderson, would make a "hot dad".

"I'm in no rush. I'm 25 – I'd like to have a baby before I'm 30 but I don't think it'll be in 2015," she explained, adding: "But Stephen will be such a hot dad. There's nothing sexier than seeing a man with a baby."

Professor Green's comments came just days after he and Millie celebrated their second wedding anniversary, sharing never-before-seen photos from their nuptials on Instagram. The couple shared sweet messages to one another and appeared truly loved-up despite being said to have hit a rough patch earlier this year.

Addressing the claims earlier this month, the Lullaby rapper said that he and Millie had been seeing top therapist Dr Linda Papadopoulos to help talk through their problems.

"Sometimes it's easier to understand things when they come from the person who is completely removed from the situation," Professor Green told The Sun. "It's one of the most constructive things I do in my life."

He added that he and Millie were pushed to the limit when they went on a detox break to Jamaica.

"We were at each other's throats. We thought we hated each other," said the star. "Then we ate normally and had a glass of wine and it was fine.

"We're good, man. We go out for dinner, we drink nice wine, we have good chat and enjoy each other's company."
