While she may rate Kevin's future parenting skills, that doesn't mean the couple are in a rush to start a family of their own. Talking about their future plans, Stacey said on a Hosteing Laura Jackson podcast: "I think I want to have kids I’m sort of back and forth. I love the idea of having a gang, a unit, an us against the world. I love all that. And I would to take care of someone. But I’m also quite morbid and because I’ve seen so much (expletive), I think what am I bringing them into?"
