The Mercedes McQueen actress told Star magazine that she enjoys her on-screen rapport with the young actor who plays baby Bobby.
"I'm not ready to pop one out yet, but Jacob - who plays Bobby - is perfect. I'm warming to the idea," Metcalfe said.
Of her relationship with professional ice skater and former Dancing on Ice partner Sylvain Longchambon, she gushed: "It's amazing.
"We work very well together - and he's good around the house!"
Metcalfe revealed: "Sylvain wants to get married and have a family, and, one day, I'd love to too. Let's see where we're at in five years."
The star's character Mercedes, who she has played on Channel 4's teen soap since 2006, gave birth last autumn.
