Faye Brookes knows she and her partner Gareth Gates will "definitely" get married and have children - but just not yet
Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates are "definitely" going to get married and having babies.
The couple have been dating for five years after they met while working on the theatre production of 'Legally Blonde' in 2012 and, although they're not ready to take their relationship to the next level just yet, they're adamant they will start a family together in the near future.
Speaking to OK! magazine, the brunette beauty said: "We're both broody as Gareth's sisters have both just had babies and we've been holding them!
"We're definitely going to get married and have babies, we're just not quite there yet."
And the 32-year-old singer has already started thinking about how he'll pop the question.
He explained: "When I do ask Faye to marry me, it'll be a huge surprise to her. I know Faye likes surprises, so I probably wouldn't do it at a time she's expecting it!"
Faye's busy career on 'Coronation Street', in which she portrays lesbian Kate Connor, means the pair are often separated for long periods of times and that means they have developed somewhat of a "fiery" relationship because there's so much "passion" involved.
The 29-year-old beauty explained: "Our relationship's always fiery because there's so much love there and so much passion. And because we have limited time with each other each week, there's an added pressure as we want it to be perfect. When you love each other so much, things get heightened. It's amazing."
But that means there's quite a lot of "jealousy" involved in their relationship.
Gareth said: "We're both quite needy, sensitive people and, as we don't spend every second together, we thrive on needing each other's attention."
Faye added: "I think that happens within every relationship. Jealousy finds its way. We get jealous of the time we spend with other people; it's not because we don't trust each other. But I imagine even if we were together all day every day, we'd still have that passion."
