Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Sarah, 34, revealed the couple have plans to start a family.

“One hundred per cent we want to start a family together,” Sarah told the publication.

Adding: “There are so many factors that come along with that.”

While a new baby would be Sarah’s first child, James is already a dad to his seven-year-old daughter Scout, who he shares with his ex fiancee, Jessica Marais.

The pair, who were previously engaged for five years, split amicably in 2015.

Real-life lovers James and Sarah spoke to New Idea after their wedding at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland, calling it “the best day of their lives”.

Revealing their big day consisted of a beautiful intimate ceremony, surrounded by 25 of their closest family and friends including Scout, the couple said “I do”.

They chose Ireland as their special spot as Sarah’s brother and family live in Dublin. But pulling off this epic European fairytale wedding in two months was no easy feat.

“It was hard to put together because of the time difference from Australia to Ireland,” Sarah explains.

“We would go to work [on Home and Away] all day, and then come home and wait for the Irish to wake up so we could call and email.”

At the time, James said: “I don’t know how she did it!”

Speaking after the wedding, Sarah and James told WHO that they can’t wait to add to their brood, and that Scout would be excited too. 

James admitted when the time comes: “Oh my lord, she’ll be over the moon! And she’ll be a great helper. She’s going to be the best big sister.”
