Jessica Simpson "definitely" wants to have children with Eric Johnson.

The singer-and-actress - who got engaged to the NFL player last month after just six months of dating - recently denied she is pregnant but admits she would love to raise a family with her new fiance.

She said: "I definitely see myself having a family with Eric, so that's exciting to think about."

Jessica is not the only person who wants her to have children with Eric.

Her mother TINA SIMPSON is hopeful the couple will follow in the footsteps of her other daughter Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who has two-year-old son Bronx with her husband Pete Wentz.

Tina told Life & Style magazine: "Obviously I'm looking forward to having more grandkids. Bronx is the love of my life."

Asked if she would prefer boys or girls, she added: "I'll take anything I get. I'm not picky!"

Jessica and Eric celebrated their engagement with their friends and families at New York's Coppola restaurant, where they dined on a feast of lobster, meatballs, sausage and ribs and the couple couldn't fail to hide their affection for one another.

A source said: "Jessica and Eric were very loving - hugging, kissing and whispering in each other's ears. She also showed off her engagement ring. She even took it off at one point and handed it to Eric's parents to look at."

The couple haven't yet set a date, but friends are predicting a short engagement.

One pal said: "It won't be before Christmas, but it'll definitely be before spring. January or February at the latest. They don't want to waste any time."
