Rylan Clark-Neal opens up about having kids with husband Dan

By Will Stroude

Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed that he hopes to have children with his husband Dan, and that he’d put his TV career on hold for a year in order to do so.

Rylan, 28, who married Dan in November 2015, said that he’s always wanted to have kids.

The Big Brother’s Bit on the Side host has been in a relationship with Dan since 2013, when the former police officer and father-of-one appeared as a contestant on Big Brother.

Rylan told The Sun: “I’m already a stepdad but, of course, I’d like to have kids. Since day one I’ve always wanted kids. I love babies.

“It’s always on the table, it’s just when the time is right.

“If I did have a baby, I’d be the sort to want a year off just to be a dad. There’s a lot that I’ve got to look at.”

Rylan and Dan made history last year when they became the first gay couple to present ITV’s This Morning, and Rylan was quick to pour cold water over constant rumours that the popular couple are breaking up.

“Every other week the phone rings and it’s, ‘We’ve heard that you’ve split up and he’s living with his mum’,” he joked.

“Honestly, everything is great between us.”

Rylan previously spoke about being a stepfather to Dan’s 17-year-old son Cameron, saying: “I look at him like he’s my own.

He can talk to me – I’m Dad, but he can talk to me about sex! I’ll say, ‘As long as you’re being safe!’

“If that was Dan, he’d be like, ‘Stop it, Dad!'”
