Gerard Butler is reportedly planning to propose to his girlfriend.
The Scottish star has been dating actress-and-model Madalina Ghenea for around eight months and has been open about how happy he is. The 43-year-old actor has admitted he would love a family one day and is said to be hoping it happens sooner rather than later.
According to America’s Star magazine, the hunk and his girlfriend are visiting Scotland together which is when he will likely get down on one knee.
The publication claims Gerard will also raise the subject of children during the holiday.
"Gerard is crazy about Madalina and he really wants a baby as soon as possible," the source explained.
"He’s scared of getting any older before having a baby – he knows time isn’t on his side."
In his latest movie Playing for Keeps, Gerard plays a wayward father who begins coaching his son's soccer team and learns life lessons along the way.
It seems the role has made the star realise how important family is to him.
He recently spoke of how much he looks forward to having little ones.
"I think I’ll be a great dad, although I can’t wait too long because I’m getting on," he said. "I love kids. I really look forward to having toddlers running around."
Gerard's romance with Madalina comes after he was linked to a series of Hollywood stars, including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz.
