X Factor finalist Rylan Clark is of course currently starring in the new series of Celebrity Big Brother, and in fact, since he began his X Factor journey in the spring last year, he’s barely stopped to take a breath!
However, his hectic schedule hasn’t stopped him from making plans for the future, and one of Rylan’s main ambitions is to become a dad…
And to that end, he’s reportedly asked 2 Shoes singer Lucy Texeira (pictured above left in a photograph from the Basildon Recorder earlier this year) to become a surrogate mum and have a baby for him.
Lucy, who is of course partnered in 2 Shoes by mum-of-one Charley Bird – who named her baby Beaux in honour of the X Factor – told new! magazine, “Yeah, he definitely wants kids…
“He’s asked me to be the baby’s mum, but I said no. It’s not for me.”
However, when asked if Rylan would consider looking elsewhere for a surrogate, Lucy said, “Oh, yeah, I think when the time is right, he would consider looking into it.”
But when asked if Rylan might consider adopting a child if his plans for finding a surrogate didn’t pan out, Lucy – who’s been friends with Rylan for a number of years – said, “I’m not sure. We haven’t really spoken about it in depth.
“All I know is that he really does want kids in the future.”
Lucy went on to say that ideally, Rylan would like to be in a loving and permanent relationship when he had children.
She said, “Rylan’s always looking for love! He really wants a boyfriend and kids.”
