Sarah Harding is considering adoption.

The former Girls Aloud singer - who has been dating DJ MRK1, real name Mark Foster, for a year - admits she is broody and is planning on having a large family, like Hollywood star Angelina Jolie who has three children with Brad Pitt, and three children they have adopted.

She told the latest issue of new! magazine: ''I don't know if I could push out that many! I might do an Angelina Jolie and adopt a couple. I haven't thought that far ahead, to be honest. But I've got three dogs and two cats, so that's enough for now. It's like having kids.''

Sarah, 31, is happy with Mark because they have been friends for longer than they have dated, and met before she was famous.

She added: ''I've been with him for a good year now, but we've known each other since we were young - before I got into the band. We met when we worked together at a pizza shop! He was a drum 'n' bass DJ and I used to go and watch him play. It's cool because he's my mate as well as my boyfriend.

''We were on and off for a few years back then and just drifted back together last year when he got in touch out of the blue. It must have been meant to be.''

However, Sarah plays down any suggestion of marriage and wants to launch her solo career first.

When asked about marriage, she added: ''Oh, don't start! I'm not in a rush and I'm happy with how things are. But the career comes first at the moment.''
