Charlotte Crosby has revealed she often feels the pressure to settle down and have a family of her own now that she is in a happy relationship with Liam Beaumont and her friends are in the stage of becoming parents.

The Geordie Shore star, 30, took to her Instagram stories to confess that her female fans often ask her when she will be having children with her boyfriend, leading her to quiz people on why couples are expected to “rush everything”.

It comes after Charlotte asked her fans: “What pressures have you felt being a woman?”

One of her followers replied: “Being 30 and having the pressure to have a baby. Am I ready? Do i even want kids? Stay the drunk ant?”

Speaking to her camera, she began to share her thoughts on the matter: “This is a really good one. I feel like in friendship groups, when a lot of your friends are having babies, you just feel a certain amount of pressure to do the same.

“I know that I have felt this. I have felt this pressure and it comes from everyone. It comes from other women which is so strange to say.”

She continued: “If I was to do a question and answers on here, every single question off women, not really off men, but off women would be, ‘When are you having a baby? When are you having a baby then?’ I feel like there’s the pressure right there. There’s the pressure.

“So, all that’s meant to happen when you get a boyfriend is to have a baby and settle down.”

Charlotte then asked her fans why couples can’t make the most of their younger years together before thinking about getting married or having children.

“Where’s the sense of travel? You have fun, you create amazing memories together. You have so many stories to tell your kids at one point regardless of what age you are or when in life they do come. I feel like that’s gone down the drain,” she stated, before suggesting the “pressure” as the reason for why long-term relationships may be "failing."

“Sometimes I feel is that sometimes the reason why some marriages and relationships aren’t successful is because they succumb to all this pressure of ‘now we must get married’ or ‘now we must have a baby,’” she added.

“Then all of a sudden, you’ve had no fun, you’ve had no time, you’ve not focused on yourselves as a couple and really enjoying every second of that because you’ve rushed everything because you feel like that’s what you need to do.”

Later on, one fan submitted: "Successful at life = marriage and kids," to which Charlotte responded by announcing: "Everyone measures success differently and you need to ask yourself the question of, 'what is success to you?'

"I disagree with this one. I think success is measured on exactly what you've done with your career and being the best in your career."

Charlotte went on to explain: "I feel a lot of pressure career-wise. I feel like because I haven't done certain big shows, or I don't get accepted to go on some shows I try for, means I'm not successful.

"When really, that isn't the measure of success at all. I feel like everyone has a different perception of it."
