Ferne McCann has revealed she wants the birth to her second child to appear in her ITVBe reality show, but she’s struggling to convince her fiancé Lorri Haines.
The First Time Mum star, 32, is expecting her first baby with her husband-to-be, and has revealed she is hoping to give birth at home.
Speaking to pal Vicky Pattison on her The Secret To podcast, Ferne, who is also mother to daughter Sunday, five, 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!’
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.’

The star also reflected on her decision to take a break from social media last year, explaining: ‘I think for the first time in a very long time, I feel very comfortable in my own skin.
‘And I actually like myself, you know what I mean? I just feel like I’m really content with life. […] Well, I think it’s about six months ago, I had like, a big break from social media for obvious reasons.
‘It felt really weird getting back to social media, because I felt like I didn’t know myself I had this like, serious case of loss of identity.
‘And now, it just, it does feel really refreshing and quite liberating to just be like, this is me! I feel really good with where I’m at.
‘I’m super happy with the pregnancy and just obviously launching the business and it feels good!’
Her latest sun-soaked holiday comes after Ferne spoke to MailOnline about her plans for her upcoming nuptials to Lorri.
She revealed her plans for an ‘intimate’ wedding now that her ‘circle is very small’ and says her bridal look will be ‘laid-back’.
In an exclusive interview to celebrate the launch of her new wellness app Shoorah, Ferne said: ‘My vision for my wedding has definitely changed over the years.
‘I would have previously said that I want a big wedding with everyone there, but my circle is very small now and I want something intimate and beautiful, definitely abroad, friends and family.
‘I know people say this all the time, but you want to look back and say everyone there are still in our lives.’
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.
‘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.’
