British supermodel Sophie Anderton is planning to undergo artificial insemination to fulfil her dream of becoming a mother.

The former catwalk star remains single at the age of 37, but she wants to have a baby next year (15) with the help of doctors.

Anderton is planning to undergo treatment in the coming weeks and hopes to be pregnant by the end of 2014.

She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "People might find it surprising, but I've been broody since I was 21 and I don't want to wait anymore. Man or no man, I want to be a mum... I am ready to be a great mum...

"I refuse to say the Sd words (sperm donor), it just feels wrong, but maybe one of my beautiful gay friends will help me... I am hoping I will be pregnant or at least on the way to carrying by the end of the year."
