Demi Lovato may have only just turned 21 this year, but pop star and actress apparently already has babies on the brain! In the cover interview for the December/January issue of Latina, the “Heart Attack” singer talks about being overcome with some powerful maternal urges. But before you start knitting booties for her impending baby shower, read on.

“I’m a Texas girl, so my instinct is to have babies early,” Demi confesses. “In my heart I’m like, 'Okay, it’s time to have babies!' But it’s not. I have so much life ahead of me that I actually have to slow my roll.”

We’ll say! While Demi is definitely wise and mature beyond her years, we’re glad to see her focus, for now, is on her music career, and on giving back through charity work. That said, how cute would a baby Demi be? (Answer: super cute. Duh.)

So when can we expect Demi to start thinking more seriously about giving in to her maternal instincts? “We’ll see where my life is in five years, but I definitely see myself as a mom in 10.”

That’d put Demi around 26 to 31 years old. Seems like a pretty reasonable time frame to us!

You can read more of Demi's interview when her cover issue of Latina hits newsstands on November 12.
