Paris HiltonPossibly inspired by friend Nicole Richie’s pregnancy, Paris Hilton has brought forward her plans to have children and said she would like to get going on it ASAP.

Paris had previously said she hoped to be married and have children by the age of 30 but now, at the grand old age of 26, Paris has said she wants them “next year”.

She told Elle magazine recently: “I just started working out and it feels great. It gives me so much energy. I want kids next year, so I’ve got to get my body ready.”

But she doesn’t know just yet who the father of said children will be - but she’s on the lookout for him: “I used to care about looks, but I’ve grown out of that stage.”

“They have to be a good person, someone I know would be a good husband, loyal and funny and smart. And somebody I can trust, with good chemistry. But I don’t know, I like a guy who can make me laugh.”
