Binky Felstead - who is expecting a baby with Josh 'JP' Paterson - has "always" wanted a "big family" according to her mum Jane
Binky Felstead has "always" wanted a "big family", according to her mum Jane.
The 26-year-old television personality recently announced she is expecting her first baby with on/off boyfriend and 'Made In Chelsea' co-star Josh 'JP' Paterson, and despite her mum Jane expressing "total shock" at the news, she believes her daughter will be "very maternal".
Jane said: "A short while ago I suddenly found out I am going to be a grandmother! Total shock of course for both of us!
"What a wonderful gift this is! I can't express how happy I am!
"Binks has always loved children; being very maternal she always saw herself having a big family - in the future!
"The future is a wonderful thing because you can let it sort itself out; because we have absolutely no control."
And Jane has promised her daughter that the bundle of joy will bring her "undreamed happiness", but has warned her of the "extreme tiredness" that comes with motherhood.
She added to MailOnline: They are both overcome with joy; and suddenly the future they planned - if they had planned one (which I doubt) - is turned on it's head.
"They are going in a whole new exciting direction which will bring them undreamed of happiness - as well as extreme tiredness (and penury!)"
"I can be on hand if needed... and I feel I just might be!"
Whilst Binky and JP are not officially together at the moment, they do go on "dates" but insist they won't be rushing their relationship for the sake of the baby.
JP said recently: "Where we're both being very mature is with the fact that you should never get back together just because there's a baby in the picture.
"It has to be for the right reasons.
"We love each other a great deal and there's no pressure - but you do have to take the past into consideration, where there have been a few hiccups. We're just taking it very easy."
