Michelle Keegan wants four children with her husband Mark Wright.

The "Our Girl" star tied the knot with her beau just over two years ago but, although she's always wanted to have a baby of her own and has already planned how many little ones she and the hunk will have, she's too busy to be a mother at the moment.

Speaking to Women's Health magazine, she said: "We've not planned anything and realistically nothing can happen right now because I'm too busy. But I've always been broody. I love kids and I want four, so hopefully in the near future."

The couple have been forced to spend months apart while the 30-year-old actress shoots the third series of the army drama in South Africa, Nepal and Malaysia, and Mark, 30, has been busy with his celebrity correspondent job for "Extra" in the US.

But the brunette beauty believes FaceTime is the secret to a successful long-distance relationship because it helps to keep her "sane" - even though it's "really hard."

She explained: "It's hard being away from him (while I'm filming). Really hard. But we FaceTime and speak, like, all day every day! That's what keeps me sane!"

And it's not just her relationship that suffers when she's away working as the former "Coronation Street" star has put on a stone since she left the UK to shoot the series.

She said: "I've put on a stone and feel it everywhere. I've been away (filming "Our Girl") for so long and I haven't had time to work out, and I literally landed two days ago and now I'm kicking myself and thinking, "Why didn't I just eat healthily while I was away?" But you know what, I think I needed to put on a bit of weight.

"I was a bit bony. I'm a normal girl at the end of the day and when I'm standing there in a bikini or teeny-tiny clothes I'm like, "Oh God!" "
