Exclusive: Sam Faiers says she needs to 'move in first' with Joey Essex before babies
Former TOWIE star Sam Faiers said she's in no rush to follow in her sister Billie's footsteps on the baby train.
The model was in Dublin to promote her work as the new face of Ann Summers' latest range and told Independent Style she's enjoying taking things slow with her other half.
"Not yet. joey and I are taking things slow. Our next step would be moving in with each other," she explained.
"I love being an auntie, little Nellie is gorgeous and she's smiling, she's developing all her features."
Sam also said she wouldn't rule out a return to reality tv, but is waiting for the right project.
"We played out our relationship for so many years on TOWIE. Over the last year, it's worked so well for us, and our relationship, not being on the show," she added.
"Moving forward, either this year or the next year, we wouldn't say no to it. Right now, it's about taking things slow between us. I'm not going to say no, we never will, because I love doing reality tv - it's a matter of when."
And her affinity for Ireland is growing with each trip.
"I've been here a few times, but they're always flying visits," she explained. "I've been to the Wright Venue a few times and I'm coming back in September. I've been to a few bars which is a shame because I want to see a lot more of Dublin. I love it over here - people are so nice and really kind."
"People just can't do enough for you and it's not like that all the time at home in the UK. It's really refreshing."
