LONDON: Shakira, 32 has revealed she is ready to start a family with her fiancé Antonio de la Rua because her ‘’biological clock is ticking’’.

She has been engaged to Antonio de la Rua, 36, for the last four years said, “I’m dying to have a baby. We both are. I’d like two and Antonio would like three. So probably after my next album, which comes out next year. I don’t think it could be sooner because in 2010 I’ll be touring as well.”

She met him nine years ago in a restaurant in Argentina and says she knew straight away he was ‘The One’.
