Ellie Goulding is feeling ''broody''.
She explained: ''My sister has a baby five months ago and she's the most adorable kid. She is gorgeous and I'm not just saying that. Having a baby is so life affirming and such a beautiful thing.
''And I'm nearly 30. I'm not a teenager any more so yes, I'm broody. Dougie and I do talk about babies, it's natural I suppose. We talk without it being weird.''
The 28-year-old star hinted they aren't planning to have a child together any time soon though as she's so busy, meaning she doesn't even have a day off to tie the knot.
Asked if they're going to get married, she said: ''I just don't know. My next two years in my diary are already filled up with touring. I haven't even got time for a wedding day.''
But she insisted the 27-year-old hunk - who has previously battled depression and went to rehab for alcohol and substance abuse in 2011 - has eased her own worries about her appearance.
She told The Sun newspaper: ''I've had the same problems that a lot of women have, but mine have been out there in public. We all get insecure, tired and stressed and we all have self-doubt.
''But it's good to find someone who loves you the way you are and understands my job and what comes with it. Dougie is just a very calming person.
''He's been through a lot and is a pretty incredible person.''
