Nicola Adams and her girlfriend Ella have revealed plans to have a second child.

The couple, who welcomed their son Taylor in July 2022, were speaking exclusively to OK! on the Pride of Britain Awards red carpet, when they talked about their experiences of motherhood so far and said it has been better than they ever could have imagined.

"Oh my god, it's amazing," Nicola, 39, told us.. "It's awesome.

"It's so much more rewarding than I could have ever expected. We do get her [Ella's] mum babysitting when we're in need of a night off though, and sometimes it's needed."

Nicola also revealed the pair becoming mums has only made them want to grow their family more.

She said: "We do definitely want another – don't get me wrong, we're only just getting used to the one we've got, but we're loving it so we'd definitely want more in the future."

The pair looked incredibly stylish on the red carpet, with Nicola donning a dapper grey paisley suit with a black shirt, with Ella, 24, wearing a low cut black body con dress with a statement necklace.

They welcomed their son just three months ago after going through IVF, the process of which they have detailed in a new documentary to highlight the struggle they went through.

In an appearance on This Morning ahead of their documentary airing, they spoke candidly about their journey to have their son, with Ella acknowledging that having Taylor wasn't plain sailing.

"The first [IVF] attempt didn't take, and the second time we miscarried, and then the third time we got him," she explained.

"After the second time when I wanted to try again, I said, 'If it doesn't work this time, I need a break', because it's really emotionally challenging and can be really, really hard."

One of the reasons for their documentary was also to shine light on the lack of diversity in sperm donors, something that shocked presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.

Nicola explained: "There's barely any black donors when you look on the websites, there's maybe two or three, maximum…"

Ella added: "You'll go on a site with thousands of donors and you'll narrow down your search to Caribbean or African and there'll be no Caribbean, and maybe three Africans, and that's it.

"And for people that are going through IVF who looks like them and is the same race as them, there are no donors."
