Jess Shears and Dom Lever are hoping to have a baby next year - despite only dating for two months
Love Island's Jess Shears and Dom Lever will start trying for a baby next year.
The couple - who met and fell in love on the ITV2 dating show over the summer - have only been together just over two months but they're certain their romance will last the long haul as they're thinking about starting a family of their own soon.
Dom, 26, said: "We are planning to have kids ASAP. Honestly I just want them now, I'm game. Jess keeps reminding me I'm almost 30 and need to be a dad soon."
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Jess, 23, added: "I keep telling him that if he doesn't have children now, he's going to be this age when they leave school which means he won't be able to retire and I put it all out on the time scale. We both really want kids."
And it's not just a baby the pair are thinking about as they're adamant it's only a "matter of time" before they get engaged because they can't imagine being without each other.
Dom explained: "We have talked about engagement and it's a progression. It's definitely something we are thinking about - when you know you know don't you."
And Jess added: "I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else."
With a wedding on the cards, the couple are hoping TV executives will approach them about their own spin-off show - just like their co-stars Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes.
Dom said: "We could do a newlyweds show!"
Jess added: "Honestly it would be so good. We would love to do a series. There would be so much bickering and play fighting - he's the biggest wind-up merchant you've ever met. He bugs me for the fun of it and we end up having these play flights."
