Ola Jordan and husband James could have some very happy news for fans in the future, as they revealed they are trying to start a family.
The former Strictly Come Dancing favourites – who have been married since 2013 – have decided to start the next chapter of their lives together, after James suffered an agonising double hernia while training for the couple’s nationwide dance tour, which has now been put on hold.
And it seems his injury has given the lovebirds the chance to reconsider their options.
Speaking of their plans, Ola explained: ‘James and I have always said that we would really like to start a family, but the time has never been quite right before.
‘When I left Strictly two years ago I thought I was ready, but I was offered I’m A Celebrity, and that led to other jobs I felt I couldn’t turn down.
‘There was always something, but at the same time having children was always in the back of my mind. It has been this missing part in our lives.
‘So when we had to call off the tour this year, I thought it was a sign. I believe everything happens for a reason, and we’re not getting any younger.’
The pair have been together for almost 18 years, but Ola feared they could miss the chance to expand their family if they wait any longer to have a child.
‘I didn’t want to be one of those people who spends years working, but wakes up one day and thinks: “Oh my God, I forgot. Now it’s too late”,’ she added.
James has previously spoken of his desire to have a child with the former jungle campmate, explaining their dancing careers got in the way.
‘If we hadn’t done Strictly we’d have probably had children 10 years ago, because it has always been something we’ve wanted,’ he told The Sun.
‘All of our friends have children, and we can’t wait – fingers crossed – to join them.
‘But there has always been something there to do. And as much as I was really gutted to cancel the tour, it has given us time to reconsider things. We haven’t 100% decided if we are going to cancel it altogether or postpone it.
‘But put it this way, if Ola was to get pregnant now, not doing the tour wouldn’t mean anything to us. We’d be beginning a new chapter of our lives.
‘I’m so excited even thinking about trying for a baby.’
