Mark Wright reveals he’s ready to ‘settle down’ and have children as his life is going ‘too fast’ | The Sun

MARK Wright has revealed that he's ready to settle down and have children as he said his life is going by "too fast".

The former The Only Way Is Essex star chatted away to listeners of his Heart Radio show last night – as he joked that having kids with his wife Michelle Keegan might "slow down" his week.

Mark, 35, reacted to text messages sent in by his fans during the three-hour programme on Thursday afternoon, including one from a mum struggling with the school holidays.

"Feels like this week has been going on forever with the kids off on school holidays, it's taking so long to get to the weekend," he read a text from listener Sharon.

Mark couldn't help but disagree, and said that he felt his week was going by too "fast", before offering up his own solution.

"Sharon, I disagree, I feel like this week has gone so quickly covering for JK and Kelly," he replied to the fan live on air.

"I think maybe that's telling me that I need to have children or something to slow my weeks down because I'm like a kid!

"When I was a kid it felt like my life went so slowly, but as you get older it feels like it goes so quickly, so Sharon I need to be like you."

"Get kids, let it slow down," he concluded of his plan of action.

Mark and his wife Michelle, 35, have been married since 2015 – but have continually waved away speculation they will be welcoming children into their family anytime soon.

Earlier this year, Mark was seen posing with his baby nephew at a family wedding – and fans gushed over how fatherhood "suited" him.

Mark and wife Michelle are also currently building their dream home, but have refused to be pushed on whether they'll have children.

The actress spoke out last year after being asked about children regularly despite no-one broaching the subject with her husband.

She told Women's Health: "I get asked about children whereas Mark wouldn't for example. Why haven't I had a child? When am I going to have a child?

"I don't know what they want me to say. I don't know what the right or wrong answer is."

Speaking to You magazine, she previously said: "I’m used to people asking me but it’s no one else’s business.

"Nobody else knows what goes on behind closed doors. I think that’s the reason that question affects me so much – it’s very private! Mark is asked about it occasionally but I’m asked every single time."

In the autumn, Mark's dad Mark Snr commented on sweet snaps of Michelle with her cousin's baby son Brody, and begged the couple to make him a grandpa.

He told guest Robbie Williams, whose daughter is called Theodora: "Me and my wife, we’re not trying for kids yet, I’m going to state that.

"However we hopefully one day will have kids and she loves both ‘Teddy’ and ‘Theodora’."
