Los Angeles: After splitting from John Mayer, pop star Katy Perry is reportedly telling friends that she wants to have a child.

The 29-year-old singer, who was spotted flirting with EDM star Diplo at the Coachella music festival, apparently wants to start a family by the end of the year, reportedly.

"Katy wants kids as soon as possible. She`s not talking about new boyfriends so much as finding a guy who can get her pregnant without expecting marriage," a close friend of Perry said.

The `Roar` hitmaler also sees a new baby as the perfect career move. "If she goes through with this, it will be as much a publicity stunt as anything else in her career. As she admits to her friends all the time, she is addicted to attention!," the friend added.
