Writing in an Instagram Q and A after Mexx was born, she revealed: ‘I want lots and lots! Haha no I’m joking, I would love maybe 5 or 4 or maybe 3 but I’ll see what happens after 2.’
Brooke also revealed how she chose the name Mexx for his son, saying she likes the fact he has an ‘unusual’ name.
She said: ‘I’ve always loved it and when we found out we were having a baby, Kean loved it too and wasn’t sure if it was actually a name.
‘But then I looked into it when I was pregnant and it means “the greatest” so for us it was perfect. I love I know nobody else with his name too! I think sometimes it’s nice to have an unusual name.’

‘Katy Perry put something on Instagram this morning five days after giving birth. You just presume your stomach is going to go down because the baby is out and not inside you’.
She confessed of her pregnancy diet: ‘I have a few months of Deliveroo still knocking about for not bouncing back, one of those things i wasn’t really aware of’.
Talk then turned to an Instagram post shared in November in which she detailed the pressures of motherhood in a candid message.
She admitted she was in tears as she struggled to fit into 23 of her pre-pregnancy outfits while planning to have her ‘first cocktail in 11 months’ with her partner.
The Manchester native started off her note by revealing she was gearing up to enjoy her first date night since giving birth to Mexx, but opted to stay at home as she felt like a ‘completely different person’.
Brooke explained: ‘Tonight I was supposed to look completely different, I was supposed to be dressed up, hair and make up done ready to eat some nice food and maybe have my first cocktail in 11 months with Kean.
‘Our first time away from Mexx for an hour or two, instead I look like this. I look like this because I naively thought that 4 weeks after my baby I would be in all my old clothes looking exactly like I did before I got pregnant.’ [sic]
