Ferne McCann has revealed she has finally found the one as she admitted that she would ‘genuinely marry’ her boyfriend Lorri Haines after a string of failed romances.
The former TOWIE star, 31, and the Dubai based estate agent went public with their hot new romance last month during a holiday to the UAE.
Speaking to The Sun, Ferne, who is mother to daughter Sunday, four, with jailed ex Arthur Collins, also told how she has learned from her ‘mistakes’ and would like to expand her brood with Lorrie in the future.

The star confessed that she is ready to spend the rest of her life with Lorri and ‘can’t wait’ to extend her family, just weeks after he was pictured sniffing suspicious white powder.
Ferne gushed: ‘I have met someone that I can see the rest of my future with. I can’t wait to extend my family and for Sunday to have siblings.’
‘I have never thought about it until now because I have met someone now that I would genuinely marry.’

Ferne made clear that her life has changed a lot since her relationship with Collins, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence at Woodhill Prison, Milton Keynes, after carrying out an acid attack at a London nightclub in 2017.
Saying her life was turned upside down by the incident, Ferne added: ‘I am different now — I am older and wiser. I have learned from mistakes.’
The reality TV star described Lorri as a ‘loyal man’ that she ‘respects’ and said they have a lot of ‘parallels’ in their lives.

Lorri is based in the UAE and runs a jewellery firm, an investment business and a software company.
Ferne’s words come after a video resurfaced of Lorri appearing to hold a bag of white powder to his nose.
In the film obtained by The Sun last month, Lorri, who has since insisted he was not taking drugs, is seen scooping the powder out of the bag and up to his nostrils, with a pal shouting in the background: ‘No! No ket, no ket.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ferne McCann for comment at the time.

Lorri, who was not dating Ferne at the time the video was filmed, was seen dancing shirtless in the clip while holding two small clear plastic bags.
Lorri’s friend told him to ‘put the ket down’ before the entrepreneur was seen throwing the packet onto a nearby table. It has not been confirmed what substance Lorri was holding.
The man then says: ‘That’s none of your business,’ prompting Lorri to shake his head and reply: ‘None of my business.’
He then held the smaller bag up before before clapping his hands and dancing to the music.
Haines has told The Sun that he was not taking drugs and was ‘joking about’.
Sources told The Sun Lorri had been partying on a yacht at the marina with six friends earlier in the day.
An insider told the publication: ‘They went to an apartment and carried the party on until about 4am.’
The clip surfaced three weeks after Ferne shared her first picture with Dubai-based Lorri, with the reality star writing at the time: ‘When you know, you know.’
Authorities in the desert country have a zero-tolerance policy with regards to drugs, with the standard minimum jail sentence for possession being four years.

Ferne has famously had a rocky love life, most recently splitting from DJ Jake Padgett last year after they spent the second lockdown together.
After the split Ferne revealed she still wanted to find her happily ever after and is ‘such a sucker for love’.
Ferne and Jack moved in together amid the winter lockdown shortly after they began dating, and admitted that taking the next step in their relationship was its downfall.
Before that she was in a relationship with Collins, with whom she shares her daughter Sunday, four.
Collins’ attack saw sixteen people suffer chemical burn injuries and three people left temporarily blinded.

Mother-of-one Ferne dumped him after she learned about the incident which came just weeks after her pregnancy announcement.
Last year, the former TOWIE star confessed she previously ‘struggled to come to terms’ with being a single parent as she reflected on the challenges she has faced raising a child on her own.
Ferne said: ‘I guess I was one of those people that might have had a misconception about single parenting, because I didn’t want to be called a single parent when I was pregnant.’
