Sam Faiers 'will put wedding plans on hold for longed-for third baby'

By Hana Carter

Sam Faiers has said she would rather have another baby before her long-term partner pops the question.

The former TOWIE star, who has been patiently waiting for boyfriend Paul Knightley to propose, said a third child would be a "good consolation prize" if the wedding isn't going to happen.

The TV favourite, 30, is hoping to give her son Paul, five, and daughter Rosie, four, a little brother or sister.

"Sam is dying to get engaged - it's every young girl's dream," the source claimed.

"But if a wedding isn't going to happen anytime soon then another baby is a good consolation prize."

Sam has been with Paul, 33, since 2014, and has previously shared her vision for the perfect wedding.

"I'd want to get married abroad in Europe and I'd want quite a small and intimate wedding," she revealed.

Pregnancy rumours have been circulating around the couple for a while now, with Sam adding fuel to the fire by saying: "If a third baby comes along.. we don't want too much of a big gap."

She recently flew to Moldova to visit an orphanage for disabled babies, children and teenagers to encourage her fans to help her raise money.

The mum-of-two wore a baggy grey sweatshirt as she cuddled and talked with the children.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to speculate, with one writing: "Is that a little baby bump? She is definitely pregnant."

Another agreed: "Possibly a little baby bump there?"

A third wrote: "Yes, I can see a bump," as another chimed: "You can tell she's pregnant. She's been wearing baggy clothes."

Sam and pal Luisa Zissman embraced and sobbed with joy as they managed to raise £100,000 for Outreach Moldova.

The pair aimed to raise £40,000 for the kids, so couldn't believe it when they hit a target almost double their initial goal.

She wrote alongside the snap: "OMGGGGG OMGGGGG We have raised over £100,000 in 72 hours. We’re hysterical. This is more than we could ever imagine… ever."

"Over the past 3 days we have been sharing our journey with you to raise as much as we can to keep these children alive and safe."

The star mentioned that this amount of money will keep the orphanage operating at a 'basic level' for almost a whole year.

They also want to be able to secure the 'best care' with physios, dentists, more nurses, more carers and nannies.

She added: "My heart is full of gratitude and love. Words can’t even explain this feeling I have. @luisazissman and her husband have supported this charity for years now and have spent millions keeping these children alive, I’m so proud to be a part of this orphanage family over the past couple of years.

"I’ll always do what I can to help these incredible children. They deserve everything."
