Baby mama! Ferne's new baby will be her second child

Ferne's 'circle' has decreased in recent years after she fell out with former close friends Sam and Billie Faiers.

The pregnant star is no longer on speaking terms with her ex-TOWIE cast mates after a widely publicised scandal left their friendship in tatters.

Now, as she sees her wedding as an intimate gathering, Ferne is also fantasising over her dress and overall look for the big day.

She said: 'Recently I have been saying to Lorri that I want to get married. The wedding plans… they didn't go on pause because we never started. We don't have a date.

'I want to have the baby but with Sofia Richie's wedding and Jamie Laing and Sophie Habboo there was so much wedding spam, and I was getting serious FOMO, I want to get married, I really want to get married.  

Catching rays: Lorri lay back on his sunbed wearing an open blue shirt and shorts

Tactile: The couple packed on the PDA on their sunsoaked getaway

Chatting: Ferne perched on the edge while chatting to her beau

'I am thinking, 'what sort of bride am I going to be? What sort of wedding dress will I have?' I was obsessed with Sofia Richie's wedding!' 

'I'm thinking no shoes because when I do wear heels, I'm taller than Lorri… no shoes, no bra, that sort of really laid-back, effortless look.'

Both in their 30s, Ferne said she bonded with Lorri over their 'failed relationships' and that they both share children of similar ages with previous partners.

It comes after Ferne revealed she wants the birth to her second child to appear in her ITVBe reality show, but she's struggling to convince Lorri.

Ferne also revealed she is hoping to give birth at home.

Speaking to pal on her The Secret To podcast, Ferne,, admitted she wants the birth of her second child to be a 'positive' experience, and envisions the idea of 'pulling her baby out.'

She said: 'I so desperately want it [her child's birth] to be on the show. But we were sort of warming him [Lorri] up. I want it to be on the show. 

'Because I've got this birth plan in my head, and I want a home birth and I want it to be positive. And I want everyone to see me like, pull the baby out. 

'I've just got this vision and he's just like, ‘No, that's just weird', but I'm like, ‘It's beautiful and it's amazing!' […]

'Reality stars get a bit of a bad name, but I saw that Ronaldo and his Mrs were doing a reality show. Everyone's doing it, so just go for it!'

Protective: Ferne rested her hand on her bump

Cute! The couple gazed adoringly at each other

Kicking back: Lorri looked utterly relaxed on the trip

Family: It is possibly Ferne and Lorri's last trip before their new baby

Sweet: Lorri leaned over to kiss Ferne on the cheek

Vicky then added: 'It's because we're all so nosy, isn't it? 

'Like, I love to see what everybody's getting up to! I would absolutely watch the birth of your child as long as it's not the business end. I don't want to see your f**** man.'

Ferne, who got engaged to Lorri in July 2022, admitted their relationship feels 'right' after they both bonded over their 'trauma'.

She told Vicky: 'Whoever would have taken me to be honest, babes! No, I feel so happy that it's him. It feels like when I met him, it just felt so right. 

'And without doing all this sort of cringy s***, but it really did feel like we were meant to meet each other at that time because he was in our 30s. 

'He's got a child. I've got a child. We bonded over our trauma. Like we literally like laid everything on the table. I was like, here's all my s***. And he had the same and yeah, it's worked out.'
