Does Demi Lovato already have babies on the brain?

You bet! But it doesn't sound like she will be popping them out anytime soon.

"The X Factor" judge covers Latina magazine's latest issue, where she talks about how her hometown roots have influenced her views on marriage and children.

"I'm a Texas girl, so my instinct is to have babies early," the 21-year-old reveals. "In my heart I'm like, 'Okay, it's time to have babies!' But it's not. I have so much life ahead of me that I actually have to slow my roll. We'll see where my life is in 5 years, but I definitely see myself as a mom in 10."

So what lucky guy will win Demi's heart?

Lovato — who was spotted holding hands with her on-again, off-again beau Wilmer Valderrama last month— also opens up about what she is looking for in a relationship.

"I look for someone who makes me laugh," the singer shares. "Because 20, 30 years from now, sometimes the spark fades, but when you’re with someone who's your best friend — that's what makes a relationship last."

The "Heart Attack" songstress also discusses another important fact about life she has learned recently.

"I noticed that there's this perception, on turning 21, that you have to go out and get drunk," she says about recently celebrating the milestone birthday. "It's different for me because I'm in recovery. I also want to set an example for others. You don’t have to booze it up — you can do something else."

Lovato certainly is doing something else.

After the death of Demi's estranged father earlier this year, she partnered with treatment center CAST Recovery to help others overcome mental illness and addiction issues, as Demi herself has.
