Babies on the brain?

"I want to start having kids, yeah," The Voice coach told Piers Morgan on Wednesday. "[But] not for seven or eight years!"

Levine told Morgan, 46, that when he envisions his life in ten years, he hopes there's a toddler in the picture: "I'd love to be maybe considering the idea of having a family. And at [42], I'd love to have maybe a 2-year-old."

So does his desire to be a father mean he also wants to walk down the aisle? "Not necessarily," he said. "I don't think that you necessarily have to be married to have children… Marriage is a controversial thing, clearly. I find that in a lot of ways, it doesn't work. Then in some ways, it does. I'm inspired by certain marriages. I'm uninspired by others."
