Chris Hughes has dropped a huge hint he is ready to start trying for a family with Jesy Nelson after landing himself in hot water with her following his NTA's "c**t gate" brawl.

The former Love Island star, 27, took to Instagram to share a snap of himself and girlfriend Jesy at the awards ceremony's red carpet, which he captioned: "She's the best" alongside a baby emoji.

The sweet message comes just days after Little Mix star Jesy confirmed she is still dating the reality star after he attacked a photographer during a bust-up at the NTAs.

The brunette bombshell stuck by Chris and uploaded a loyal post to her social media despite recent rumours she was furious with him for ruining her spotlight moment with his ugly paparazzi spat.

Jesy, 28, threw her support behind him after he was being investigated by the police following his brawl.

Chris was locked in a late-night altercation with a snapper which he has since begged for forgiveness for allegedly retaliating to being called a swear word.

Initially, reports circulated that Jesy was angered by Chris' outburst and she even celebrated her award success with a dinner with her "loved ones" without her beau.

However, the fiery hitmaker proved where her allegiance stands as she shared a glamorous photo of the power couple on the red carpet.

Sharing a simple caption of a black heart emoji and an orange heart emoji linking to the colours of their red carpet outfits, Jesy hinted at their united front.

Chris begged forgiveness from his family, friends and fans for "retaliating" and claimed he was repeatedly called a swear word.

"I want to address last nights altercation," he wrote on his Story.

"I was having an amazing night celebrating the award my girlfriend deservedly won.

"After coming out of our hotel a particular paparazzi decided to repeatedly call me a name I wouldn't call my worst enemy, and physically try and start an altercation," Chris claimed.

"As everyone can see I retaliated back badly to this which I totally regret.

"I'm human. No different to anyone elses. However I want to make everyone aware this was only in self defence. I hope people I care about, including my followers, family and friends can understand and forgive me.

"This night was about Jesys win and I'm sorry if I distracted anyone fron this. Ultimately, I'm the proudest boyfriend ever and want to congratulate my amazing girlfriend for a deserving win. I am so proud of you," he finished.
