Kimberley Walsh is ready for a baby.

The 31- year-old singer has been open about how much she's itching to have a tot with Justin Scott - her boyfriend of ten years - but says they're both now ready for a family.

She said: ''We're both really broody. Friends laugh at us and say we're the best babysitters, which we are. I really don't think it's going to be long now.''

The blonde beauty - who was part of the band Girls Aloud with Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts - is confident marriage is also on the cards, but she's not keen on a big, white, wedding.

She explained to Hello! Magazine: ''I always sort of saw it happening after Girls Aloud finished [earlier this year]. I didn't want getting married to get lost in everything else. Justin knew that and would never have asked me when he knew it wasn't the right time.

''But he does really want to get married at some point and it will happen. I've never been one of those girls who wanted a big extravagant wedding, though, so I think I'll be more, 'Can we just do this really quickly please and really simply?'''.
