GEMMA Collins has revealed that she’s getting ‘broody’ but plans to postpone having a baby until she adopts two Alsatians.
The former Towie star, 40, admitted that she plans to transform her £1.3million Essex pad into a dog paradise with a special parlour for her pooch.

The self-confessed diva said that she would “treat her pet like a child”, saying it’s her lifelong dream to have a garden full of rescue animals.
Gemma, who previously spoke about having kids, said she is considering postponing having a baby until she gets a pet.
“I’ve mentioned before that I’m thinking about getting a dog, I absolutely love animals,” she said on The Gemma Collins podcast.
“At 40-years-old I have my home now, I feel a bit grown up and I know I can be more than responsible to look after an animal.
“I think that is what is so important when considering getting an animal.
“Now that I’m feeling settled, I’ve got my partner, I’ve got my home, I really miss having animals in my house.”
She continued: “I’ve been weighing up this decision for about a year-and-a-half now, part of me goes that I can give a dog and cat a lovely home.
“I would love to have a whole garden of rescue animals. That is my lifelong dream.
“Then my serious side kicks in and do I have the time?
“I know I can give it all the love in the world, I know I can pay the vet bills, I know I can give it cuddles. I would love this dog forever and it would be part of my family.
“I’m probably getting broody, so I’m like shall I get the dog first and then the baby.”
The self-confessed diva said that she is prepared to splash out on a lavish designated pooch area in her home.
“This is a big decision as getting married. I was thinking about getting a fancy dog home built in her garden with doggy TV, doggy massage, even a doggy parlour.
“Anything the dog wants, the dog is going to be treated like a child, better than anyone in my house.”
Earlier this month, Gemma revealed she plans to give birth outdoors and has already picked her baby’s name – despite not being pregnant yet.
Gemma, who is trying for a baby with boyfriend Rami Hawash, admitted she has been inspired by nature after becoming obsessed with gardening during lockdown.
She said on her podcast: “Me and Mother Nature are at one, because I’m hoping to get pregnant soon.
“Maybe I should find a place in the forest where I can give birth to my Mother Nature’s child.
“I might even call it Blossom. The Japanese blossom tree.
“I know the child’s name – it’s going to be called Blossom!”
She continued: “Blossom is soon to be born around Japanese cherry trees.
“I really want to go to Japan, because I’ve been seeing the cherry blossoms and they are unbelievable. They take my breath away.”
Gemma and Rami first dated in 2011, enjoying an on/off romance for three years before splitting in 2014.
They got engaged in 2013 when he proposed by hiding a diamond ring in a Christmas pudding.
They briefly reconnected in 2017, but Gemma was back with James Argent soon after. However, she called time on that rocky relationship for good last year.
In April, it was revealed that Gemma and Rami had been secretly dating for six months.
Gemma has been enjoying being a step-mum to Rami’s son from a previous relationship, but is desperate to have a child of her own.
