Reality star Gemma Collins, 40, who is trying for a baby with boyfriend Rami Hawash, was given the idea by a listener of her The Gemma Collins podcast, after asking listeners to suggest names for a “showstopping” life-sized giraffe lamp she bought for her living room.
Gemma’s favourite name was suggested by a fan called Jordan who said: “I think you should name your new lamp Gevita the giraffe, an amalgamation of your name and Evita who was played by your beloved Madonna.”
The TOWIE star went on to say that Madonna is indeed her “beloved” and that Rami’s shared love for the superstar actually brought them together.
Gemma has previously said she liked the name Blossom after becoming “at one with nature” during lockdown. She also said she is considering giving birth in a forest.
She said: “Me and Mother Nature are at one, because I’m hoping to get pregnant soon.
“Maybe I should find a place in the forest where I can give birth to my Mother Nature’s child.
“I might even call it Blossom. The Japanese blossom tree.”
Gemma has been very open about her desire to become a mum and previously revealed she was considering IVF after struggling to conceive naturally.
In an earlier podcast episode, she said: “I really want a baby now. I’ve not been using any contraception. I can’t get pregnant, so I am going to have to be brave now and look into this myself.”
Gemma admitted not being able to conceive naturally had been getting her down: “It feels like sometimes – when is it going to happen? Why me?”
