Last month, Ollie spoke about his excitement at becoming a father and starting a family with his new husband Gareth. 

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia, Ollie said that fatherhood is his top priority right now, first and foremost.




He opened up on their surrogacy plans, teasing: ‘I can say we are leaving quite soon to head across the world to become pregnant.’

‘There is nothing in my life that I am more excited or ready for,’ he said. 

In March, Ollie told The Times about their plans to use a surrogate to have a baby. They will use an American egg donor and a British surrogate.




The pair will also both provide sperm, but won’t know whose ends up being used.

‘We’re mixing it up, so it’ll be whoever’s swims best on the day and we’ll never know. Although if it comes out with yellow hair, it’ll be Gareth’s,’ Ollie told the publication.

Ollie said he had changed his mind on having children after realising Gareth was his soulmate and feeling a ‘void that I couldn’t fill naturally.’ 

He said: ‘I want my own biological child. If Gareth and I can’t have biological children for whatever reason, of course we can discuss [adoption] but surrogacy is our plan first.’




The couple found a surrogate from the UK who they both ‘utterly adore’ and flew to the US to meet their egg donor. This is because in the UK you cannot see what they look like.

‘The rules in America are more progressive and it feels like what we want to do is much more accepted and regulated. I hate the idea that in the UK you can’t see an egg donor’s face, so for the rest of my life I’d have no idea where my child’s features came from,’ Ollie added.

The happy couple both took to Instagram in March to announce the exciting news.

Captioning a snap of Disney princes Eric and Phillip with a baby, Ollie penned: ‘So I think it might be the time to tell you all! Gareth and I are very much on our surrogacy journey to become fathers.




‘We are very nearly there, with the help of the best person we could ever ask for! (you know who you are, our heavenly surrogate)

‘After many months of planning, legal formalities (I can’t believe it has been so difficult) and building the next stage to our home, we will soon be travelling to America (as soon as we can, sadly fertility is not essential travel!!) with our surrogate and hopefully become pregnant.

Dads: 'So I think it might be the time to tell you all! Gareth and I are very much on our surrogacy journey to become fathers'

‘Whatever happens and through the ups and downs, we are going to take you all on our journey. We have waited for a long time to share this news. We felt it was a hugely important discussion telling our story of how a couple that love each other, and desperately wants a family are becoming parents!

‘Through my own social media, Made In Chelsea and (I’m sure) other TV platforms we will all go through this together and we couldn’t be more excited to become parents’.




The couple secretly married at London‘s Natural History Museum in front of 13 guests including bridesmaids Binky Felstead and Olivia Bentley on November 4th.

They hastily organised the event with just 48 hours’ notice before the second national lockdown began across England the following day.

Friends and family also attended an impromptu wedding breakfast at Chelsea’s Bluebird restaurant the night before their ceremony, with guests including Tiffany Watson, Lydia Bright, singer Ella Eyre and actress Pearl Mackie in attendance. 

Ollie told Hello! magazine: ‘As soon as you say “I do”, it’s the start of a great adventure. And this is something that we have wanted for a long time. Now let’s see if we can create a family – that’s the next stage.’

The couple previously said they will join their matching surnames to become the Locke-Lockes.

Speaking about their wedding day, Ollie added: ‘It was just spectacular. It was so elegant, so incredibly beautiful and so special. It was very unique and very us.

‘I love living my life as a rom-com and it was exactly how we wanted it. I knew it was going to change our lives forever.’

New husband Gareth added: ‘It was something I will remember for the rest of my life and it was perfect.’
