The 40-year-old reality star said her hope is to have her first child in 2022.

Collins has previously opened up about her struggle to conceive in the past. She has been praised for being so real about her PCOS diagnosis.

She said she understands that it may be harder for her to get pregnant, but she is ready to be a mum.

Speaking about her PCOS diagnosis, Collins said she was told about her condition when she was in her 20s.

“It’s been a struggle ever since, however, I make the most of myself and remain positive because it’s what in your heart counts the most. Sending love to all the PCOS sufferers it’s not easy and always be kind people.

“People are not always overweight because of all the stereotypical bullying comments,” she reminded her followers.

Collins suffered a miscarriage during lockdown last year.

“It was really difficult for me in isolation because, as you know, with my condition of PCOS, it’s not easy to fall pregnant and I did suffer a miscarriage which was really sad during the lockdown period.”

Despite her heartache, Collins said she won’t give up on her dream of becoming a mother.

“I will have a baby and I do want a baby. And also, every mother will know this, I want to feel motherhood… I’ve not had the physical experience of being a full-time mum. I don’t want that robbed from me in my life, that would be a travesty.”
