Heart-throb RUSSELL CROWE is desperate to have babies with his movie star lover MEG RYAN.
The GLADIATOR actor fell head over heels in love with the beautiful Hollywood blond earlier this year (MAY00) - and admits he can't wait to start a family with his her.
Talking about the music he has written with his band 30 ODD FOOT OF GRUNTS, he says, "I have a song called SHE'S NOT IMPRESSED and one of the lines in it is that I want babies but not right now. "But I've completely changed. I mean I wrote the song three or four years ago, but now the 'not right now' bit has disappeared. "I want to have a family and all that kind of stuff."
And he says falling in love with Meg while making his latest film is not an unusual phenomenon in Hollywood, "You might make grand friendships during the course of these films but that's not unusual." And he admits he's fed up with the media attention which has surrounded his latest love affair, "This whole concept that because you're famous you're public property, where did that come from. I'm just getting on with my job."
Ryan already has one child, JACK with estranged husband, INNERSPACE star DENNIS QUAID. (MB/WNV/CPT)
