British model/actress Kelly Brook has spoken for the first time about her pregnancy news, gushing over her whirlwind romance with the father, retired rugby ace Thom Evans.
The Piranha 3D star recently revealed she will welcome a daughter later this year with the Scottish sportsman. Brook has now opened up about her relationship with Evans, revealing she fell pregnant just weeks after they met but insists having a family with the Scot is "so right".
She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "This baby is not the result of me suddenly becoming broody because I have hit my thirties. It is simply that I have met someone that I am happy to share that responsibility with. When you discover you are pregnant, you ask yourself, 'Am I in the right situation to do this in the best possible way I can?' And with Thom, as much as I love him as a boyfriend and someone I fancy, I have to say to myself, 'This man is going to be the father of my child."
"Can I rely on him? Is he responsible? Is he going to take care of me?' All of these questions have put a huge pressure on Thom - and on me too. But every time I've considered these things, I realize I can tick that box. And then, meeting his family and seeing how they have embraced me and our news has made me realize even more that this is so right."
However, Brook insists they are not planning to get married any time soon, adding, "One thing at a time. I don't think it is impossible by any means, but to love someone for the rest of your life is a hard thing to promise. I think having a baby with someone is a far greater commitment. People walk away from marriage every day. We have simply skipped that part and gone straight for the lifelong commitment."
