Olivia Buckland says hubby Alex Bowen is ‘ready for babies’ ahead of first Christmas as married couple

Just two months after tying the knot, Olivia Buckland has opened up about plans to start a family with her new husband Alex Bowen.

In September Olivia said ‘I do’ to her Love Island sweetheart in a fairytale ceremony at Essex’s Gosfield Hall surrounded by their family and friends.

As the happy couple settle into married life, Olivia said they’re already being quizzed about taking the next step in their relationship.

And Olivia admitted hubby Alex is already broody.

"He really wants a little boy. He would literally have a child now but there’s too much we’ve got to do so I’m putting my foot down," joked Olivia.

"It’s on our radar but we aren’t planning on it any time soon," she added. "We’re still working our bums off and we have lots of plans for next year and places we want to travel to.

"We never got married to have children, we got married because we wanted to," she explained. "Babies will come eventually but not for a couple of years yet."

This year Alex and Olivia are looking forward to celebrating their first Christmas as a married couple.

Olivia, 24, revealed they’ll be spending the big day in their own home for the first time ever.

"We’ll be hosting. I say hosting – but my mum will probably be doing a lot of the cooking," laughed Olivia.

"We have the families coming together for the first time which will be really nice. We haven’t had that before," she added.

But Olivia, the face of W7 make-up, said that despite the chaos, she’ll be sticking to her tried and tested Christmas day routine.

"I sit in my pyjamas for breakfast and then stay in them until dinner is nearly ready then I go upstairs and get changed and get into a little Christmas party vibe," she said.

"I like getting glammed up on Christmas Day. it’s just a nice little thing to do.

"But then after food I get back in my pyjamas because you have to put your belly in some stretchy trousers!" joked Olivia.
