Sam Faiers and Joey Essex want to have a baby and call it Marbs.
The 'Only Way is Essex' couple - who got engaged in Dubai in the final episode of the show's last series - are keen to start a family together and name their little one after Spanish resort Marbella, which is one of their favourite holiday destinations.
Sam said: "We might start trying for a baby now in Marbs. We'd call it Marbs! I can't wait to have kids, I am very maternal."
But Joey added: "If it is a boy I want him to be called Joey Essex."
However, the couple - who have argued on several occasions on the ITV2 show - reportedly clashed a number of times while filming forthcoming 'TOWIE' episodes in Marbella, but after one particular bust-up in trendy club Pangea they were back being their loved-up selves the next day.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "They are quite volatile with each other at the moment and after rowing a lot they are not really talking to each other at the moment.
"But Sam is still wearing her engagement ring and they have got through rough times before."
As well as Joey and Sam, show stalwart James 'Arg' Argent is returning for the programme's ninth series and compared himself to 'EastEnders' veteran Ian Beale - who has been portrayed by Adam Woodyatt for 28 years - after appearing in all but one episode of the reality series.
He said: "I don't want to sound big-headed but no matter who comes in, I never feel threatened by newbies.
"I have been there since day dot. I have been in the thick of every series and I have done 96 episodes out of 97.
"I am the Ian Beale of TOWIE! No one is taking my place."
'The Only Way is Essex' returns to ITV2 on Sunday (02.06.13) with a 'The Only Way is Marbs' special at 10pm.
