Rihanna has revealed she wants to have children, but she doesn't like the idea of raising them on her own.

The 22-year-old star - who is dating Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp - told Interview magazine she wants to get married and have a family, but doesn't want to be a single mother.

Rihanna said: "I definitely think a child deserves both parents. It would be selfish of me, because of my pride and independence to say, 'Oh, I just want a sperm donor, because I can do it myself.' I can do it myself, but that's not fair.

"I'm just saying that whatever comes my way I'll be able to handle it, but in a perfect book, there would be marriage and kids."

But the Umbrella singer, who has just released her fifth album, is in no hurry to settle down.

She said: "I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids so... whenever the time is right, I'll just know. I don't really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right.

"I know God will probably want me to have a daughter just so I could see what I put my mother through. But on the other hand, I really love little boys. So it would just be fly either way."
