But it appears the EastEnders star, who is known for playing Alfie Moon on the popular BBC soap opera, isn't done expanding his brood.

Explaining that he's been thinking of taking this step for a long time, he told The Sun Online: "We always talk about it, myself and Christie, and because she is fifteen years younger than me and she is only 41, so there is still time.

"We have been talking about having another baby and there is still time and she is always talking about wanting another kid (her own biological kid) and I know our daughters would love another brother or sister.

"But now we are talking about adopting and because we live in Surrey, the rules there are very different to when we lived in Bucks, which was a long time ago, but I am still up for it."

The TV personality, whose son recently accused I'm A Celeb of "playing with people's lives", continued: "The only thing is that you’ve got to put time aside to sit down and I’m not sure if I am eligible now because of my age and because of what I do for a living.

"But it’s only because I am an actor and because I am not always around.

"I don’t have a 9-5 job and I don’t know if it would be fair. But I don’t know we still talk about it and if Christie wants to go ahead with it and it’s a decision that she wants to make then that is fine."

Shane went on to explain that the pair may even foster a child in the future, but confessed they aren't sure about it as he's not home all the time due to his profession.

"I just don’t think it would be fair on Christie having another child," he said.
