TV presenter Laura Whitmore has told of wanting children - but it has to be the right time.

"At the moment, I just want babies. I'm walking around the shopping centre going, 'I want that one, and that one and that one'," the 29-year-old said.

"I'm at that stage where I love kids, but I also want to give them back afterwards. I definitely want them, but it's got to be the right time."

The star, who split from long-time boyfriend Danny O'Reilly from The Coronas last year, tries to keep her private life out of the spotlight.

"Even when I was going out with Danny I was very conscious of being private," said Bray-born Laura, who now lives in London.

"I've seen people give too much of themselves."

The star has made the cover of Irish Tatler for its bumper Christmas issue, in which she is interviewed.

She is wearing a printed MSGM dress from Brown Thomas.

The blond beauty will be returning to our screens this Sunday as she hosts 'I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here Now’ alongside Joe Swash and comedian Rob Beckett.
