While she may not look like it, Tyra Banks is close to 40 and she is very much aware.

During an appearance on CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Show,’ Tyra made it clear she does not plan to follow in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey when it comes to rearing some mini ones of her own.

The 37-year-old told Morgan that she had no doubt on her motherly ambitions, saying:

“I definitely want babies.”

Tyra says she and her longtime boyfriend, businessman John Utendahl, are ready to move into the next phase of their lives. When asked if they were trying, Tyra coyly replied, “yeah, maybe.”

But don’t expect wedding bells for the couple anytime soon. Tyra says she isn’t holding off being a mother before being a wife.  Speaking on the possibility of marriage Tyra said: “I don’t think it’s necessarily necessary.”

It’s interesting to hear Tyra’s opinion on being a mother, especially given how differently she feels than the woman she is compared to the most. While Oprah has said she chose to build an empire over raising a child, Tyra seems determined to do both.
