Actress Carmen Electra's maternal instincts have become so strong, even strangers' babies have started to captivate her.

The 32-year-old former Baywatch beauty, currently engaged to rocker DAVE NAVARRO, was signing autographs at the AVENTURA MALL in Miami, Florida, when she stopped to coo over all the babies.

She exclaimed, "Oh, my God! I can't wait to have babies of my own!"

An observer says, "She was so interested that she asked all the mothers their babies' names and made 'coochy-coo' sounds."
