TOWIE: Sam Faiers and Joey Essex to start trying for a baby before Christmas, but Joey won’t propose on TV!

by Anna Howell

Could we be about to be treated to the first TOWIE baby?

While all the TOWIE attention seems to be focussing on newly engaged couple, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone, and their future televised nuptials, Sam Faiers and Joey Essex may have plans to out stage them again.

The Only Way Is Essex lovebirds, who got back together earlier this year, have revealed that they have plans to start a family, and could start trying soon, in time for Christmas in fact!

Speaking about their plans in a recent Star magazine interview, Joey revealed:

“We were talking about babies just earlier. I told Sam I’d love to make babies right now! But we’ll wait until Christmas. Our girl’s gonna be called Minnie, obviously!”

Sam added: “He wants Joey Junior for a boy. We talk about it all the time, but we can just about look after ourselves.”

So, all the only piece of their plan still to be planned, it would seem, is a wedding, or at least a proposal, but if you are looking forward to watching it happen on our screens when the show returns, you may be disappointed.

Joey has revealed he has no intentions of proposing to Sam on the show, unlike his co-star Mario who proposed to Lucy during the TOWIE summer special, The Only Way Is Marbs, commenting:

“It’s gonna be adventurous and interesting. I’d want it to be just me and Sam, so no, I don’t think I’d ever do it on the show. It wouldn’t mean as much. We talk about marriage twice a day.”

Sam went on to say how they have started planning the wedding of their dreams, adding: “I’ve got to keep saving though. There’s so many things I want at my wedding. I want the white dress and everything… we’ve practised the wedding kiss.

“When they say ‘You may kiss the bride’, me and Sam are gonna go for a massive snog,” Joey went onto comment.

With a baby and a wedding all planned out, the couple are also looking for their own place.

Sam said: “We’ll save next year and get a place together. I’ve only been in my house since February.”
