Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins plans to walk away from her singing career in a few years' time - to start a family with her TV presenter boyfriend Gethin Jones.
The classical singer dreams of settling down and having children, admitting she's a "mother hen" with a "strong maternal instinct".
But she is determined to put recording and touring on hold when she finally decides to start a family - because she would hate to "drag" her children out on the road with her.
Jenkins tells Britain's You magazine, "I'd like to have children one day. I've got a strong maternal instinct - I'm a mother hen! I've made a conscious decision that I will do a few more years of the concerts and travelling and singing - I always want to sing but I also don't want to be the mum who drags her kids around on tour.
"I want to be around to enjoy motherhood, so I think I will take a little bit of a break and then hopefully come back after that. But I'm only 30 - I've still got time."
