Former THE SOPRANOS star Drea de Matteo is planning on starting a family - without a man.

The actress, who recently split from longtime boyfriend Shooter Jennings, admits she's desperate to get pregnant and raise a child with her assistant.

The 32-year-old says, "I believe that if you have a great friend or a great assistant like I do, who's one of my closest friends, the two of us could raise a baby pretty good together."
