LeAnn Rimes is examining her family planning options with husband Eddie Cibrian because she worries she will have trouble conceiving, like her mother.
The country singer is already a stepmom to Cibrian's two sons with ex-wife Brandi Glanville, however Rimes is hoping to have children of her own.
She tells People.com, "Whenever I talk about kids, I'm like, 'Let's have one!' I have a lot of work to do now but I'm totally ready if it happens."
Nevertheless, the 30 year old admits she might have to turn to adoption or rely on a surrogate to become a mom, explaining, "It took my mom 12 years to have me. I hope I don't have that (issue) but if I do, then a surrogate is something I've thought about. Eddie and I have also talked about adopting."
"My capacity to love a child doesn't stop at my own eggs, obviously!"
And when the time comes, she's holding out hope for a girl to even out their household: "Testosterone is all around here so I need a little girl!"
