Kim Kardashian would "love" to be a mother.

The 30-year-old beauty - who is currently dating basketball star Kris Humphries - is keen to become a parent at some point but she is still waiting for the right time.

She said: "When the time is right I would love to be a mother."

Kim spends lots of time with 16-month-old nephew Mason - son of Kim's sister Kourtney - and she adds she loves looking after him.

She told US OK! magazine: "When I'm not with him, I miss him so much."

Kim has previously revealed she has not found fault with her new boyfriend Kris, and although a family is not being planned right now, one will come at some point.

She said: "I think I haven't found one thing wrong with him, let's just put it like that."

Asked about starting a family, she added: "Not anytime soon. But I never know what the future holds."

Kris also has strong feelings for the socialite, saying she is a "terrific" girlfriend.

He said: "Kim is a great girl. Everything about her is terrific."
