Jess Impiazzi’s romance with former footballer Jermaine Pennant is going from strength to strength – and she exclusively tells us they’re now thinking about starting a family together this year!
Jess, 33, admits that while her acting career is her “main focus” at the moment, she’s keen to have a baby sooner rather than later.
Describing her relationship with Jermaine, 39, as “amazing”, she said, “He wants me to marry him and have loads of babies. We’ve already got names!”
She continued, “It’s definitely something we’ve spoken about and will do. My acting career has just really taken off and Jermaine is doing really well with his football commentary on talkSPORT.
"That’s the main focus for us. But I’m 34 in March, so time is creeping up, and he’s 40 in January.”
The couple, who have been dating for over a year, have been living together in Surrey since May. “I think he’s the only person I’ve ever been in a relationship with who hasn’t got an annoying habit,” Jess said. “He makes me laugh a lot. He’s really clumsy, but I love that about him. It doesn’t annoy me at all. He just makes me laugh so much.”
Jess and Jermaine met in the showbiz industry and were friends “for a while” before getting together romantically.
“We were both with other people and it was never a thing where I thought it would happen,” she explained as we caught up at the TRIC Christmas lunch. “I don’t even know how we got together in the end – I think it was him trying to chat me up!
“We’re happy. We’re both working hard on our careers and we’re supportive of each other. And that’s the main thing. We just work well together – we’re both silly.” She then joked, “He wakes up every morning and says, ‘I’m so blessed!’”
Jess was left heartbroken in 2021 following her abrupt split from childhood friend Matthew Cook.
The former Ex On The Beach star, who has also dated footballer Samir Carruthers and was married to rugby player Denny Solomona, has previously opened up about her dreams to become a mum and settle down.
“I’d like to have a nice big wedding. My last one was in Vegas, so I’d love to have a big one with a beautiful dress with all my family,” she told us back in 2021. “I definitely want to have children. But I won’t put pressure on myself. If it comes, it comes.”
Meanwhile, Jermaine was previously married to Alice Goodwin before splitting in 2020 after nine years together.
