Newlywed R&B star Kandi Burruss is determined to get pregnant this year (14).

The singer, who is also a cast member of hit U.S. reality Tv show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, wed Tv producer Todd Tucker in April (14) and she's already planning a family with her new husband.

She tells In Touch magazine, "I want to get pregnant this year! Knock it out by 39! I just don't want to keep waiting. At first, we thought it would just happen, but it hasn't yet. So now we're clocking days and making an effort. We really want to start a family together."

Burruss, who is already mum to daughter, Riley, and stepmum to Tucker's daughter, Kaela, adds, "I always wanted to have a son!

"We're even open to in vitro fertilisation. The cool part about that is we could guarantee a boy."
