Kate Beckinsale admits she may be leaving it too late to have another child.

The 38-year-old actress already has a 13-year-old daughter, Lily, with former partner Michael Sheen and while she would like a baby with husband Len Wiseman she has no immediate plans.

She said: ''There's absolutely part of me that goes, 'I'd love to have a baby in the relationship I'm in, and have that experience when the relationship's really good and exclusive,' but I'm just not sure. At some point the decision will be made for me, when my ovaries dry up and die. We'll see. There's nothing that makes me go, 'And now I must have triplets!' ''

Kate also revealed how she doesn't fret over getting older as losing her father, Richard, when she was just five has taught her there are more important things to worry about.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: ''I love 'pretty' as much as anybody, but if that's all there is as a culture, we're screwed. I think you have to be as objective about that as possible and say, 'There is nothing that serves my soul in wondering how crow's feet are going to affect my life.' It's something to be resisted. Ageing is going to happen and it should. My father died at 31, so to me ageing is extremely preferable to the alternative, which is not ageing. Every year I get past 31, I think, 'Thank God.' It's a gift to be able to go, 'I look different, that means I'm not dead!''
