Chrissy Teigen wants to have ''a lot'' of children.

The 28-year-old model thought she would have already started a family with her husband John Legend by now, but she insists when they do take their relationship to the next level, she wants a brood like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Speaking on HuffPost Live, she explained: ''I swear to you, I thought I would've had one [a family] by now. So, hopefully we'll just have this Angelina-Brad-type brood. I would love that ... I definitely want a lot of kids, though, and he [John] does as well.''

Angelina and Brad have adopted children Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, and Zahara, nine, as well as biological children Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, and Chrissy insists she too will adopt in the future as well.

When asked if she and John would adopt children, she replied: ''Oh definitely, of course, very open to that.''

The brunette beauty, who married the 'All of Me' hitmaker last year after six years of dating, would like to have at least four children and has already started imagining her life with the youngsters running around.

She explained: ''I would love four [children] because I have a very small family, so I would love to have those big Thanksgiving dinners. In my mind, I have this imagination where I picture everyone gathered around the dinner table and hopefully that ends up working out. ''
