Lily Allen is desperate to have a baby with boyfriend Sam Cooper and wants to get pregnant as soon as possible

Lily Allen is desperate to get pregnant.

The 'Not Fair' singer - who recently announced she was to take a five-year break from music - is keen to start a family with boyfriend Sam Cooper and wants a baby within the next 12 months.

She said: "I'd like to have a child within a year. It'll be a minimum of four or five years before I make a record again.

"I know what commitment it takes to release an album. I don't think that mixes well with the idea of settling down and having children, which is ultimately my goal and more of a priority than flying around the world."

The 25-year-old star says once she becomes a mother she will dedicate her life to her children.

She told Absolute Radio: "I want to be really hands-on for the first two or three years of having a little one. I don't want to leave them."

This is not the first time Lily has spoken of her intentions to have a baby with Sam, 44.

The 'Smile' hitmaker - who was left devastated after suffering a miscarriage with then-boyfriend Ed Simons' baby in January 2008 - recently spoke about her desire to settle down outside of London and live a quiet life with her builder boyfriend, who she started dating last summer.

She admitted recently: "I just want to have babies and live in the countryside, that's my goal really.

"I'm not a careerist, what I really want is to be a mum. I am driven, but that drive goes as far as keeping a roof over my head and having a routine.

"I have been in a relationship for six or seven months now and its going really well, so why not?"
