It was a failed relationship that helped me know for sure that I definitely want to become a mum.


He already had a son. It was a beautiful, whirlwind romance. I asked him on the second date if he was open to more kids. He said yes.


But when I brought up the subject in subsequent conversations, he seized up. Nearly three months later, after a romantic weekend away and me mentioning it again, he said he didn’t think he wanted more kids after all. At the time, I believed I loved him so much, I could sacrifice wanting to have babies of my own to be with him. A couple of weeks later, he ended the relationship.
