Vicky Pattison changed her mind about having children after she met her fiancé Ercan Ramadan.
The former Geordie Shore star revealed on Instagram last month that she had begun the journey of freezing her eggs and explained that she wants children in the near future but her body doesn't have the "luxury" of time.
Opening about her decision with Mirror Online, the 34-year-old explained that she didn't think motherhood was on the cards until she became an aunt and began dating Ercan in 2019.
"So honestly, I didn't think motherhood was like something I wanted, especially in my mid to late 20s," Vicky said. "I was adamant that I wasn't going to be a mother. I didn't think I had a maternal instinct or anything but it's been a couple of things that have happened, let's say, in the last three or four years.
"My sister had her little girl and being an aunty has just honestly opened my eyes to the true joys of motherhood. That changed my mind, meeting Ercan and the thought of a tiny little Ercan running around... Honestly, it makes my ovaries scream. I think as you just get older, like most women, it's just something that takes over, it's instinctual. So there's like an amalgamation of things really."
And while the I'm a Celeb champion has warmed to the idea of children, she isn't ready to become a mum right away, adding, "I just know that now isn't particularly the right time for it."
Vicky and Ercan got engaged in February.
