Amy Childs isn't planning to take any time off before or after her baby is born
Amy Childs doesn't want to take maternity leave.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star may be due to give birth to her first child in two months' time but she's not planning to take any time off in the run up to her labour.
She explained: "No way (will I take maternity leave). I'll probably have one day off a week. I'm very social and can take the baby with me everywhere I go. I love being out."
The red-headed beauty has had a relative easy pregnancy so far but she has admitted her hormones have been all over the place and she's been shouting at her boyfriend Brad Wright because she needs chocolate bars to satisfy her cravings.
She said: "At the minute, I'm very needy. Like, the other day I demanded he go buy me a chocolate bar. I felt bad because I should've been more police. He says: 'Amy, you're asking for a hell of a lot.' And I'm like: 'Sorry, it's my hormones.' I've been blaming my hormones a lot. The other night I was in the bath talking to the baby and he started to the baby too. If anyone had seen us, they would've thought we were nuts."
And, although Amy would love to get married, she's adamant that her and Brad - who reunited last week after he was released from prison - are focusing on their baby for the time being because they think starting a family is a big enough commitment.
Speaking to Star magazine, she said: "It's all about the baby now. It's a massive commitment and is the main focus for us. Everyone's always saying 'I hope he proposes' but I'm not like that. I'm only thinking about the birth."
