Katy Perry reportedly wants to have a baby.
The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker, who split from John Mayer for good in February after two tumultuous years together, has told friends that she is yearning to become a mother and doesn't think she needs to be in a relationship.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com: ''Katy wants kids as soon as possible. She's not talking about new boyfriends so much as finding a guy who can get her pregnant without expecting marriage.''
The 29-year-old singer is due to kick off her The Prismatic World Tour in Belfast, Northern Ireland on May 7 but thinks having a baby afterwards would be good for her.
The insider claimed: ''If she goes through with this, it will be as much a publicity stunt as anything else in her career. As she admits to her friends all the time, she is addicted to attention!''
Katy split from ex-husband Russell Brand in December 2011 and the Despicable Me 2' star's desire to have kids was one of the reasons their 14-month marriage broke down.
She previously admitted: ''Russell really wanted me to have children and I knew I wasn't ready.
''I think it was a way of control. I'd have to be home more.''
