James Jordan has opened up about his fertility fears, after recently confessing he and wife Ola are trying for a baby.
The Strictly Come Dancing star and his wife, who was also a dancer on the show, recently revealed they are trying for a baby after deciding they want to start a family.
Now the TV star, who’s been with Ola for 18 years, has admitted that they fear they left it too late because of their careers.
Speaking to Star magazine, James said: ‘I think we’d both agree that had we not been involved in Strictly for so many years we’d have had children earlier. You don’t know until you start trying. I could be firing blanks.
‘At the moment I’m flying in and out of Holland to judge Dancing With The Stars, so I’m not home much.’
But even though the couple, who tied the knot in 2003, might not have much time to try, James added: ‘Put it this way, if Ola gets pregnant in the foreseeable future we’ll be very happy.’
James’ worries comes a month after he revealed they’re both ready to start their own family together, but haven’t yet because of their successful careers as dancers.
Ola told the Sun on Sunday in March: ‘James and I have always said that we would really like to start a family, but the time has never been quite right before.
‘There was always something, but at the same time having children was always in the back of my mind. It has been this missing part in our lives.
The 35-year-old added that she felt that the fact that they had to postpone their tour because James is injured was a ‘sign’.
‘When we had to call off the tour this year, I thought it was a sign. I believe everything happens for a reason, and we’re not getting any younger’, she said.
James also explained that they decided to delay having children because of Strictly: ‘If we hadn’t done Strictly we’d have probably had children 10 years ago, because it has always been something we’ve wanted. All of our friends have children, and we can’t wait – fingers crossed – to join them.’
