Little Mix fans were left distraught when the singer unfollowed her fiancé on Instagram, sparking rumours that they’d split – and now it seems they may have fallen out over when to start a family. A source told Reveal magazine that Jesy, 25, who is “constantly” talking about being a mum, wanted to start trying for a baby as soon as they’d tied the knot in May, but that Jake, 24, doesn’t feel ready for fatherhood.
The source said: “Jake feels that, at 24, he’s just too young to be a father. He feels they have their whole lives ahead of them to start enjoying kids when the time is right. Jesy completely disagreed. She is only a year older but is much more emotionally mature – and she was always very clear with Jake that, as soon as she got married, she would want to start the next big chapter in their lives together.”
Jesy, who got engaged to Jake last year, is reportedly “desperate” to have a little girl. The Shout Out To My Ex hitmaker, who has been spotted recently without her engagement ring, has yet to comment on whether or not the split rumours are true, but the source told Reveal that Jesy has cancelled her upcoming dress fitting and told the secret wedding venue to release the date.
They added: “Jake has been trying to get in touch loads and see if they can sort things out, but Jesy’s not interested at the moment. She’s told her closest friends that if he’s not wiling to step up to the place and be a father; there’s no point in them getting married.”
