‘What I’m most looking forward to is marrying Boj. The day we met I told him I wasn’t interested in marriage or kids. LOL. I’ve never loved anyone this much or felt so loved by anyone either.

‘I’m eternally grateful to have you by my side. You’ve helped me through undoubtedly the most challenging 4 months of my life.

‘(Probably yours too putting up with me) To say having a baby tests your relationship is a understatement but your kindness, patience, support, love, endless cuddles and late-night bedtime chats reassuring me and reminding me that everything will get better has made me love you even more.

‘But when we rebooked it for the following year, a few of our friends and family said we could have a baby between now and then.

‘I laughed, but then I turned 40 in May and suddenly I felt grown up and like I was ready for something and I didn’t know what it was.’

The reality star also said she had felt ‘pressurised’ in the past but is happy that she waited to have a child until it felt right.

Kate, who won Big Brother in 2002, said: ‘I think I am going to be a much happier person knowing that I did this when I wanted to.’

During the candid interview, Kate also told the magazine doctors said she had a low egg count and this helped contribute to her being ready to become a mother.

The star explained how she knew the ‘decision would be taken out of her hands eventually’ and she was ‘sad’ at thinking she wouldn’t be able to conceive.
