Bobby has spoken openly about wanting to become a father with the help of a surrogate, but although he still wants to go ahead, he is unsure about how his new boyfriend will react.
During last night's episode of TOWIE, Gemma Collins asked Bobby during an exercise class how his baby plans were coming along.
Bobby admitted: "I've got a little bit of a spanner in the works to tell you the truth.
"I'm still going ahead with it, but I've met someone and now I'm seeing him, I don't know how I turn round and say, 'Actually babe, I want to be a dad'."
Earlier this year, it was reported that Bobby's journey to find an egg donor would be followed by a camera crew for forthcoming documentary The Baby Makers.
Bobby also told Gemma, Sam Faiers and Ferne McCann last night that he'd "been on the single bus" for two years, however he kept tight-lipped about who the lucky man is.
Spill the beans, Bob!
