Nicole said: ‘He’s my man… the man of my dreams. I definitely want kids, at the right time. It is all about timing. 

‘It’s kind of hard now because I’m supposed to be touring next year, so it’s just about timing. I’ve always wanted a family.’

She gushed: ‘It’s just been a blessing to be able to have, like, a normal, healthy relationship and take time for myself. He is my partner in crime, my best friend.’  

It comes after reports that the loved-up couple are already trying for a baby.

A friend told The Sun in the summer: ‘Thom told pals he’s been taking supplements to boost fertility.

‘Nicole and Thom are ridiculously loved-up, and have had serious conversations about everything from marriage to babies. No one would be surprised if they had some baby news in the coming months.’
