I'm desperate for another child but my husband isn't keen | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: I’M desperate for another child but my husband doesn’t seem interested.

My daughter is five now and I am 40.

I met my husband late in life and we started a family straight away after we got married, because I felt my body clock was ticking.

I’d always wanted a big family. I’m an only child and so were both my parents so I didn’t even have cousins who I was close to.

My daughter constantly asks me when she is going to have a little brother or sister. It’s all she talks about.

My husband is standoffish about the whole thing. He says our daughter is enough for now.

He doesn’t seem to understand the urgency I feel.

If I didn’t say anything to him, we’d drift along without ever considering having more kids.

DEIDRE SAYS: If you’ve had the conversation recently, perhaps leave it another month or two then ask if you can talk to him about something that is important to you.

Get his full attention then tell him you need to know whether more children are on the cards for him.

I never get more than three hours of sleep – what’s wrong with me?

If so, explain that you’d like to plan now because you’re not getting any younger.

If he doesn’t want more children, you may have to decide if this would be a deal breaker for you.
