“It’s just not happened for me,” Gemma explained in a tell-all interview with The Sun. “I don’t know if I want to go down the road of IVF because I’m a firm believer in that if it happens, it happens.”
Gemma has been dating Rami Hawash since 2021. The pair are engaged, having previously dated in 2013.
I’m a firm believer in that if it happens, it happens.
She often looks after Rami’s four-year-old son, Tristan, with the pair sharing a strong bond.
Last year, Gemma shared a snap of her and the child, writing: “No feeling like it. My little prince. Being a step mummy is so rewarding love is free and so rewarding nothing can put a price on this.
Gemma went on to add that if she still wants children in the future, she’s prepared to get a surrogate.

“I’m not going to stress myself out,” she continued to The Sun. “If it’s meant to be then great but I’ve got my nephews, I’ve got my stepson, I’ve got all my friends who’ve got kids and I’m the fun auntie. And kids are a big responsibility.”
However, Gemma’s mother, Joan, believes that her daughter “will make a fantastic mother” one day.
Gemma asks not to be defined by motherhood
It’s not the first time that Gemma has teased that she could try different means to become a mother.
“My only plan is to have a baby at 50,” she told the Mail. “There is so many options available out there now, that I don’t worry about it and I don’t stress about it.

“Jennifer Aniston did a great quote: ‘Don’t define me because I don’t have children’. And I just thought go Jennifer!”
