New mum Michelle Branch has no qualms about becoming a young parent because, at 23, she's achieved most of her goals in life.

The pop star gave birth to baby daughter OWEN ISABELLE (corr) in August (05) and insists the timing couldn't have been better, because she's ready to dote on her little girl.

She says, "I'm really old-fashioned. I've done a lot of thingsalready in my life that I wanted to accomplish. There's really nothing left that I wanted to do, so I knew that it was right.

"(I knew) it wouldn't be a selfish thing because I'd be able to give all my time to her and let her experience the world."
