EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy has opened up about her wedding plans to fiancé Marc Humphreys.
The 40 year old actress, whowelcomed OK! into her beautiful Hertfordshire hometo celebrate 30 years as Sonia on the BBC soap, got engaged to cameraman Marc in 2015 after a year of dating.
And now, as they prepare to celebrate a decade of being together, Natalie has shared details about their big day.
“We’d love to get married. We’ve been engaged for almost eight years!" she told us.
“One minute I want a great big wedding, the next minute I think we could just go somewhere really easy. I’m very indecisive. But at some point I do think we’ll get our close family together at a lovely place in London, go to a restaurant and have a big party afterwards.”
Revealing when they would like to tie the knot, she said: “Ten years would be a brilliant time to do it. Either 10 years together or 10 years engaged.”
Discussing their relationship, Natalie, who is mum to daughters Eliza, 13, and Joanie, seven, says it’s important to still make an effort with each other.
“Life can take over, kids can take over, and before you know it, you’ve had no time together on your own,” she said.
“You need to make time for romance. If it slips and we think we haven’t done anything nice for a month, we do bring it up. He’s better than me actually. He’ll bring it up more.”
She added: “We both fancy the pants off each other still, which is a good thing.”
And when it comes to expanding her family, Natalie has admitted they feel complete – and she's looking forward to spending more time with Marc as a couple.
“I’m young enough to have another baby. My mum was 44 when she had me. But Eliza was three-and-a-half when Marc and I met, so we’ve never been on our own as a couple. We’ve always had children,” she said.
“Also, I couldn’t go back to sleepless nights and all the baby paraphernalia. You forget how hard that time is."
She added: “Marc has just been absolutely amazing. It was only a year or so into our relationship, if not less, when Eliza called him Daddy. So I feel like I’m really enjoying us as a family.
“And I’m looking forward to 10 years’ time when the girls are older. I’ll be 50, and Marc and I will be able to have our life. We’ll be able to do stuff together, whether that’s travelling or enjoying our interests.”
