Soul star Joss Stone is desperate to settle down and have children - but she's vowed never to walk down the aisle.
The You Had Me hitmaker is currently dating an unnamed childhood friend and admits she would "love" to start a family with him.
But the bohemian singer is not a fan of marriage - and she's adamant that even if she agrees to wed, she'll shun a religious ceremony in favour of a spiritual union.
Stone tells Britain's You magazine, "Motherhood? Yes, I'd love to be a mum. But I don't want a wedding! Or if I do marry, it'll be ten years in, after I've had the kids. And it'll be a spiritual marriage only. I can picture a lovely ceremony but there's no way I'll sign a piece of paper on the day."
