Rapper and actress Queen Latifah is tight-lipped about her private life - but revealed she is desperate for kids.

The MAMA GAVE BIRTH TO THE SOUL CHILDREN hitmaker, 35, admits her biological clock is ticking, but despite having a "great" love life, hasn't found the right man to have a family with just yet.

And although the currently unmarried Latifah wears a platinum ring on her wedding finger, she insists when Mr Right appears she will take it off.

She says, "Love life is great, can't discuss it any further than that.

"When I meet the right man who can treat me as well as I treat myself, I will take this ring off and replace it with his.

"I hope I meet someone great soon, 'cause I'm ready to have some young 'uns."
