Example has banned himself from having a baby while he is trying to build his career.

The broody rapper - who recently married Erin McNaught - insisted while the couple would love a child, he wants his career to be stable enough to allow him to take time off to properly care for it.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Ideally, we both want to have kids now.

''We are in love, we've just bought a new place with room for a baby - but nine months from now I could be playing Glastonbury and it wouldn't be fair.

''If you are Lily Allen or Adele you can afford to have a year or two off to have kids but I'm not established enough yet. People forget about you too quickly.''

The 'We'll Be Coming Back' hitmaker's wedding was a relatively intimate occasion in front of 70 guests, and he previously admitted he was overcome with emotion when he saw his bride.

He said: ''I wasn't nervous on the day until the moment I saw Erin walking down the aisle. For the most part I held it together, but as soon as I started reading my vows, I had to shed a few tears.''
