Carrie Ann Inaba Wants Kids with Artem Chigvintsev

at . Comments

When she's not being yelled at by Tony Dovolani, Carrie Ann Inaba is yearning for a child with boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev.

"I'm 39, going on 40, and he's 25," the Dancing with the Stars judge recently said on The View. "And he's a good guy. But you know, I do worry, because I'm getting to the age where I'm thinking about having children. And we've only been dating for a year and a half, and it's like, ‘Do I have to start pressuring him into that conversation?' And so we have been talking about it, because I do feel like something is ticking."

Of course, the conversation isn't simple. Because she and Chigvintsev are at different stages in their careers and in their lives, Inaba is simply hoping to find a solution.

"I'm more the bread-winner right now, but I actually think that things will change," the judge said, sort of egotistically. "And I'm hoping they will, because I just can't wait to get pregnant, sit home and eat potato chips and not go to work anymore. I'm dying for that."
