Nicole desperate for a baby

Nicole Kidman has confessed she is desperate to have a baby.

The star, who is dating billionaire film producer Steve Bing, told a magazine she wants a baby before she is too old.

Nicole, 37, also admitted she is keen to wed again after splitting with film star husband Tom Cruise. She said: "I really want to get pregnant. I want a baby. I'm not pregnant, but it would make me so happy if I got pregnant before I'm too old.

I'd love to re-marry. It's so great to raise a child, but it takes two. I'm not sure I've got what it takes to do it on my own."

Nicole already has two adopted children from her marriage to Tom, 42.

Friends says she is determined to conceive - especially after finding potential husband No2 Steve.

The pair have been dating for three months reports The Sun.

The actress has hired a 20,000-a-week villa in Australia's Palm Beach, near her native Sydney, where she will spend Christmas with Steve, 39.
