Gemma Collins has proclaimed 2021 is ‘her year’ and she is hoping to end it with a ‘gigantic yellow diamond’ and a baby.
The former TOWIE star, 40, has long spoken of her desire to become a mother and feels like this year may be her time after reportedly getting back together with her ex James ‘Arg’ Argent.
Speaking to The Sun, Gemma told how she has ‘overcome a lot’ following her father Alan’s Covid battle and now feels ready for a family.
Big plans: Gemma Collins has proclaimed 2021 is ‘her year’ and she is hoping to end it with a ‘gigantic yellow diamond’ and a baby
She said: ‘I feel very settled in my 40s. I think this is Gemma’s year. I’ve overcome a lot. I just feel I’m ready for a baby. I’ve had an amazing career the last 10 years. I’ve now got my house. I’m settled, so I’m ready for action!’
Gemma explained she has been having tarot card readings with a woman named Emma who told her to expect big things in the coming months.
The star said: ‘She says I’m definitely going to have a baby this year and I’ll definitely get a ring on my finger. It had better be a big one. I want a yellow diamond. A huge one. A gigantic one!’
‘I keep saying, “You’re joking, I can’t see it happening!” But let’s see if her predictions come true. I hope so, I do hope so.’

Gemma will have plenty of space for a baby as she recently purchased a new six-bedroom sprawling home in Essex.
The reality star plans to use one as an ‘Instagram room’, another as an office and another as a nursery, should the time come.
Gemma admitted the house was originally out of her budget but settled on a ‘good deal’ and has used lockdown to decorate it to her liking.
The businesswoman described her father’s stay in hospital as he battled coronavirus ‘traumatic’ and said she would have given anything to trade places with him.

Gemma admitted she would sometimes leave the hospital and cry in her car as her father battled the illness after he was admitted just before Christmas.
Although doctors feared he would not make it, Alan began to show signs of improvement and was allowed home with Gemma and her mother Joan on January 27, however he has ‘long-Covid’ so his recovery will be slow.
Gemma said when her father was on his ‘death bed’ in hospital, he grabbed her hand and told her he would walk out of the hospital alive, while she also described him as her inspiration.
Gemma turned 40 only four days after her father left hospital and is planning on throwing her own festival after lockdown restrictions are lifted to celebrate.

It comes after sources recently claimed Gemma had rekindled her romance with James during his weight loss battle, six months after the pair split following a turbulent on-off romance.
James admitted he’d been feeling ‘lonely and bored’ since he and Gemma split as he revealed his plans to undergo life-saving weight loss surgery after ballooning to 26 stone.
A source said: ‘They are spending every waking moment together.’
They told The Sun: ‘James has supported Gemma through some tough times in these last few months and she’s doing the same with him with his battle with sobriety and his weight.
Prediction: Gemma told how she visited a tarot reader who predicted big things, saying: ‘She says I’m definitely going to have a baby this year and I’ll definitely get a ring on my finger’
‘They’re not shouting about it like they’ve done previously but they are inseparable right now and are properly an item again.’
A representative for Gemma Collins declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline. James Argent’s representative has been contacted for comment.
The reports come just days after Gemma was gifted with a huge balloon display from her on-off beau James to celebrate her 40th birthday.
The star posted a shot of the balloons – which featured ‘The GC’ and ’40’ with a crown and champagne bottle – as she wrote: ‘Thank you Arg for the lovely balloons.’

Back in July, Gemma shared details of her split from Arg, including a barrage of abusive messages from the crooner, in which he sent horrendous slurs, after she suggested that he had bought another woman dinner and not her.
The series of texts began with Gemma saying: ‘What man pays for another woman!!!’ While Arg responded by saying: ‘Insensitive’. Clearly riled, Gemma said: ‘And the woman that saved your life has to pay for herself!!!’
Gemma’s next message was masked, but Arg replied saying: ‘You are supposed to be treating me you hippo.’ While Gemma simply responded telling him: ‘We’re over.’
Moments later Gemma shared another series of messages, where her ex-beau sent her a plane emoji in reply to a picture of flight details.

Gemma responded by saying: ‘I’ll take a mate, I’m not booking it. You said you would be a gentleman!’
Arg shockingly replied saying: ‘YOU FAT F**K. IVE JUST LOST ANOTHER 2000’. He didn’t refer to what he had lost 2000 of.
After posting the messages, Gemma decided to take some time off social media, stating that she was ‘devastated’ and ‘heartbroken’ by the exchange.
However, the war of words between the longtime on-off pair appears to have been well and truly settled, as there have been sightings of them dining together since.
