Lauren Goodger is ready to start a family and she wants a baby with her new jailbird boyfriend.
The TOWIE star is reportedly keen to take the next step with convicted burglar Joey Morrison.
It was reported in September that the 30-year-old reality star was dating Joey, who is currently serving a 17-year prison sentence for a number of offences, including drug dealing and burglary.
Lauren spoke out in the midst of the rumours saying that she had been friends with Joey “for more years”, but their relationship has developed into something more, according to insiders.
A source told Closer magazine: “Lauren has been visiting Joey in prison every other week and she’s told her friends that he makes her feel really special.
“She hasn’t spoken to him about whether they can start a proper relationship when he gets out, but she gets the impression he feels the same way about her.
“She’s heard he’s due for early release next year and she’d love to give things a proper go then. Lauren’s extremely broody and she’s been making jokes about how beautiful their children would be. She’d love to have a baby with him because she’s never been this happy with anyone else before.”
Lauren isn’t the only TOWIE star to fall in love with a man who has a criminal past.
