Sarah Harding wants to have babies with her boyfriend.

The singer-turned-actress is looking forward to starting a family with her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane in the near future.

She said: "He's my man and all is very good on that score. One day, I definitely want babies, but not yet. I'm looking forward to the next phase - the babies and the chickens and a nice barn conversion somewhere."

Although the 28-year-old beauty - who stars in new movie 'St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold', in which she plays a rebellious schoolgirl called Roxy - is feeling broody she wants to wait until she is financially secure before embarking on motherhood.

She said: "I'm not looking to settling down and starting a family until I'm financially secure and I've paid my mortgage off and everything. I've got a good business head in that sense."

Sarah, who has just opened a nightclub in London called Kanaloa with Tom, says making the club a success will be her substitute baby for the time being.

She said in an interview with NewsShopper.co.uk: "Oh yeah, it's going to be like my baby, there's no limit to what I have to do.

"It's a business venture for Tommy and I, we've invested in it and hopefully we're investing with the idea that we are going to have further clubs opening over the next three years."
