Carmen Electra is ''yearning'' for a baby.

The former 'Baywatch' star is yet to become a mother and admits she often feels broody and wishes she had a child to care for.

When asked if her biological clock is ticking, the twice-married beauty said: ''I definitely have that yearning, absolutely. It is the only thing I haven't done in life. I had such a strong bond and connection with my mother who has passed away. I do yearn for that connection again. We'll see what happens.''

Carmen - who has been on several dates with Simon Cowell in recent months - turned 40 in April and she insists she didn't freak out about hitting the milestone age.

Instead, the 'Scary Movie' actress is embracing the next decade of her life and insists she wouldn't want to re-live her younger days.

In an interview with FOX411, she said: ''To be honest (turning 40) has been amazing. I wouldn't change it for the world. I wouldn't go back in time. I love where I am right now. I feel happy. Some people say, 'You look better now then you did then.' I take that to heart and live on that positivity. I love that.''
