‘I’d be an incredible dad, I have so much love to give’: Calum Best reveals he is looking at ‘alternative’ ways to become a father in the next two years
Calum Best will look at ‘alternative’ ways to become a father if he has not found love and settled down with a partner in the next two years.
The model, 38, revealed he is prepared to take matters into his own hands to guarantee his journey to parenthood because he has ‘so much love to give’.
The Ex On The Beach star – who is the son of late football hero George Best and his model ex-wife Angie – said he doesn’t want to leave it too late to have children and has been exploring his options as a single man.
Single father to be? Calum Best will look at ‘alternative’ ways to become a father if he has not found love and settled down with a partner in the next two years
Speaking in this week’s issue of New! magazine, the currently-single hunk said: ‘I’d be an incredible dad. I have so much love to give. But I’ll do it when the time’s right. That said, I don’t wanna wait too long – I want them soon.
‘I want to be an active, cool dad. I’ve been thinking about it a lot and if I don’t find someone I love and want to have babies with in the next two years, then there are alternatives.’
Asked if he meant he’d do it alone, the reality star admitted he would have a child with someone he wasn’t in love with or a close female friend, something he had discussed with a couple of his girl pals.
Although far from the ‘traditional happy family’, Calum said he believes he would be able to bring up a baby with a friend as a co-parent – adding that most marriages end that way in this day and age.

Calum said he has not given up on falling in love which is his ‘main goal’ but remains open to the idea of co-parenting, even if the woman involved then went on to start a family with someone else.
Discussing the possibility, he said: ‘Yeah that would be tough, but the point there is, in our day and age, marriages aren’t lasting long and it’s becoming the norm to have blended families.’
However, the former Celebrity Big Brother star insisted it isn’t something he’s looking to explore in the immediate future.
He said: ‘I have a very strong paternal instinct but, you know, not yet.’

Appearing on E!’s Famously Single, the former party boy was known for his playboy antics back in the day, but has since taken on a more balanced lifestyle.
The model has been linked to numerous high-profile women in the past, including the likes of Real Housewives personality Brandi Glanville, Made In Chelsea’s Ianthe-Rose Cochrane-Stack, model Georgia Salpa, troubled actress Lindsay Lohan and former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding.
The star took to Instagram on Tuesday to remind his followers that a new series of MTV’s Ex On The Beach will be airing.
He captioned the poolside snap, taken in Barcelona: ‘@mtvex starts tonight 10pm.’
