The 22-year-old argues that getting married was the last thing she wanted - because of "the big stink" the press made about her drunken Las Vegas wedding in January (04) - but argues that although she "definitely" wants a large family with Federline, she is not ready for children yet.
Spears says, "You know what? This is my life and I don't care what people think. I'm going to get married. I'm in love with him. I love little ones, but I'm not pregnant.
"I see myself with four or five. We're starting with a dog. I just got a Maltese named LACY."
The star has not yet met her future step-daughter KORI, 2 and will have to help raise MOESHA actress Shar Jackson's second child - with FEDERLINE - who is expected next month (JUL04).
Spears explains, "I plan to meet his daughter. I think the situation is good."30/06/2004 21:27
