Former TOWIE star Sam Faiers is keen to have another child with partner Paul Knightley.

The 29-year-old, who is already mum to son Paul, four, and daughter Rosie, two, is planning on expanding her brood and begin trying for a third child.

A source close to The Mummy Diaries star told heat: "Sam was keen to get married before she had a third baby, and ideally before she turned 30 this December.

"But that's not going to happen now, so she and Paul have decided that it might be the right time to try for another baby."

Although the mum of two would have preferred to have tied the knot before having her next child, long-term beau Paul prefers the idea of expanding their family rather than getting married right now.

"Paul has never been in a rush to get married and thinks having kids is more important, so he's onboard.

"They don't want huge age gaps between their children," the insider continued.

Sam and Paul already have one boy and one girl, but are divided as to which they would like to have next, with Paul opting for a boy and Sam wanting another girl.

"Sam adores having a daughter, so another mini-me would be lovely. But either way, they would be delighted," the source explained.

The couple also recently spoke about the idea of having more children on a recent episode of The Mummy Diaries.

During a family picnic, Sam and Paul discussed how many children they would like to have with Sam saying, "I don't know why you're looking at me like all confused, you want six."

To which Paul replied, "No I don't. I said five, but that was before I had any kids."

Last month Sam posted an emotional tribute to son Paul on Instagram after he started school for the first time.

Sharing a black and white picture of Paul in his uniform, the Celebrity Big Brother star wrote: "When your children are babies in your arms, you think far into the future about school and how it's years away.. well that day was today for us.

"I'm beyond proud of you my darling. Paul's first day at school. Honestly it was so emotional. For those who aren't there yet, brace yourself," she penned.
