Gemma Collins has opened up about how she finds being a stepmother to her partner’s three-year-old son ‘so rewarding’ as she thanked his mum for ‘letting me look after him’.
The former Towie star posted a peek into her family time with partner Rami Hawash and his son Tristan as she shared her adoration and pride in taking on the role for the little boy.
Alongside a photo of herself in pyjamas on the sofa in a full face of glam (she is the GC after all), snuggling up with her stepson, whose face she obscured with an emoji, Gemma shared: ‘No feeling like it my little prince being a step mummy is so rewarding love is free and so rewarding nothing can put a price on this.’
The reality star also shared her delight over being an auntie to nephews Hayden and Kane too, as her thoughts turned to the upcoming festive period.
‘I’m really looking forward to all the Christmas stuff coming up days out etc things to see and of course my Hayden will be with me and Kane.’
She added: ‘Auntie stepmum and hopefully God will give me a gift one day but I am so happy with what I have right now #sharingthelove and a HUGE THANK YOU to his lovely mummy for letting me look after him [sic].’
Fans and friends flocked to leave their love for the star and her sweet post in the comment section, with Jedward duo John and Edward Grimes suggesting a stay with their friend Gemma as they wrote: ‘Stunning photo ❤️ happy to capture the moment [sic].’
The Essex icon previously shared a post about her stepson in October, as she delighted over taking him for a walk as ‘the most lovely day being step mum to a beautiful three year old boy’.
Gemma, who has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which makes it more difficult to conceive, has been open about her fertility struggles as she revealed that she hopes to have a baby with Rami in 2022.
The pair first dated in 2011, embarking on an on-off relationship that included a 2013 engagement and two splits before their rekindled romance was made public in spring this year.
Speaking recently on her show The Gemma Collins Podcast, the 40-year-old revealed plans to give birth to her future child outdoors, as well as a nature-based name.
In September it was reported that Gemma was in ‘advanced talks’ with the BBC to document her sometimes difficult and traumatic journey to motherhood, in an attempt to help other women going through the same issues.
Gemma has previously spoken candidly about the three miscarriages she has suffered in the past, including one during lockdown last year.
