Nicole Scherzinger reportedly wants to have a baby "more than anything".

The American star has been with on/off beau Lewis Hamilton since 2007, and the couple seem stronger than ever since reuniting last December. It is thought their initial breakups were caused by the Formula One whizz not wanting to settle down and get married.

However, it seems nuptials are not the main thing on Nicole's mind at the moment.

"Nicole gave Lewis six months to prove he was committed and said she needed actions not words. He passed the test with flying colours and she's not so obsessed with getting married anymore," a source told British magazine Closer. "She'd love a big wedding, but what she wants more than anything is a baby."

At 36, Nicole is said to be aware of time ticking. It seems she even has an idea of how many little ones she wants with Lewis.
"Nicole says she can get married any time, but she can't have a baby any time," the insider continued. "She wants to start trying for a baby now and get married later. She's even joked about having four kids."

The brunette beauty has made her longing for a brood no secret. It was only last month the former Pussycat Doll spoke out about how her own relatives inspired her desire to dream of a big family.

"I come from a large and close-knit family and, when the time is right and it's God's will, I'd like to have lots of children," she smiled.
