Kimberley Walsh will quit work to have children.
The former Girls Aloud singer is planning to start acting on stage and screen after a successful run in 'Shrek: The Musical' in London's West End, but will give up working entirely when she becomes pregnant.
When asked about if she will start a family with long-term partner Justin Scott, Kimberley told the new UK issue of OK! magazine: ''Justin's always been quite laid back about it, it's more me really, finding the right time when I feel I want to stop working and give everything to motherhood, instead of trying to have my cake and eat it.
''I am aware that having babies is not something that I can take for granted, and I'm not going to do that. Justin's already got a little girl [Chloe, 13, from a previous relationship] so I know he's going to be an amazing dad, it's not even a question. It will be something to look forward to in the not-too-distant future.''
Kimberley, 31, added marriage isn't important to her and Justin - who have been together almost a decade - because they know they completely committed to one another.
She added: ''My family background growing up wasn't the easiest, my mum and dad split when I was six, and it was quite hard. It shaped a lot of who I am as a person.
''I'm not religious, so that's not a reason for me to do it now, and it's never been hugely important to me. Justin and I feel married anyhow.''
