Talking about their future plans, Stacey said on a Hosteing Laura Jackson podcast episode: "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 like 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?"
