Bar Refaeli wants a large family.

The 30-year-old model announced her engagement to Israeli businessman Adi Ezra earlier this year and revealed she hopes they start having children very soon.

She said: ''I think this will be a decade of family...I come from a family of four children. A lot of mums could read this and think, 'Yeah, try having one first'. Hopefully, I'll have a big family, but I'll take it one by one.''

Bar also admitted that the proposal from Adi, 40, the chairman of food distributor Neto ME Holdings, was a complete surprise.

She told the August issue of HELLO! Fashion Monthly magazine: ''Obviously I said 'yes'! It was very surprising but we were very happy...Everything fits and everything is just right.''

The pair were introduced by mutual friends just over a year ago and have been inseparable ever since.

And while she may be one of the world's most successful models, Bar and her fiancé don't want a typically showbiz wedding.

She explained: ''[We want a] very simple wedding: not a lot of people, not in a big place, maybe outdoors, barefoot ...''

Bar previously dated Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, from 2006 to 2011.

Before that, she married Arik Weinstein in 2003 but the couple divorced in 2005.
