Joanna Page and James Thornton have been married for nine years. Copyright [WENN]The pair have been married for nine years, but busy work schedules (Joanna in Gavin and Stacey, and James in Emmerdale) meant long periods apart.
However, Joanna, 34, recently revealed that she was beginning to think about having a family.
She said: "We would love a family. We've just moved into a house in the country and we'd like to fill it with kids — and dogs."
Joanna Page made her name in Gavin and Stacey. Copyright [WENN]The actress continued: "Careers, when they take off, can take your mind off babies temporarily, but I think it always comes back to when the time is right."
The Gavin and Stacey star also explained that she already treats dog Daisy like her child.
Joanna said: "I can't go clubbing all night or drinking until 5am because she has to be let out and fed. And she can't be on her own too much.
"I love her and am very protective of her. So when I become a mum I'll probably be exactly the same with our children."
Congratulations Joanna and James!
