Vicky Pattison said she’s planning to freeze her eggs until boyfriend Ercan Ramadan is ready for a baby.
The 32-year-old star began dating the social media personality in 2018, just months after she split from childhood sweetheart John Noble.
Vicky and Ercan live together in Essex, but she said despite their blissful romance, her beau isn’t ready to become a father just yet, even though she’s keen to start a family.
Former Geordie Shore star Vicky confessed she initially struggled with the decision to freeze her eggs, but she’s bravely opted to undergo the procedure – which costs around £10,000 – in an effort to pause her biological clock.
She told Closer that her 29-year-old boyfriend, who she’s been dating for two years, isn’t ready to start a family, and Vicky said she doesn’t want to put pressure on him.
The TV star said some days are hard, as she wakes up and ‘all I want to be is a mother’, but despite her tears, she’s happy with the decision to freeze her eggs, and said she won’t be getting pregnant ‘for a few years’.
“In the past if I’ve got upset over it, Ercan has said, ‘We’ll have a baby if you want to.’ But that’s not what I want to hear – I want to hear, ‘I want to have kids with you,’” she shared.
Vicky said she understands Ercan ‘is not ready’ to be a father, and she chose egg freezing because she ‘doesn’t want to be the person who rushes someone else because my biological clock is ticking’.

The former Queen of the Jungle said she thinks the procedure is ‘empowering’, and wanted to have the option of her eggs frozen in case she was waiting a few years to start a family.
“This is a responsible move and one I can’t put off any longer,” she stated.
Vicky said she was making the decision to freeze her eggs so she wouldn’t be unhappy later in life.
Elsewhere in the interview, she touched upon her relationship with Ercan, who she sweetly called ‘The One’, and said if she’d met him 10 years ago ‘it wouldn’t have worked out’.
Vicky confessed she ‘didn’t love myself enough’, and she would have never thought she was good enough for Ercan, and even said she ‘would have been the toxic one in the relationship’.
Luckily for the reality star, he came along at ‘just the right time’, and the couple have been blissfully happy ever since.
