London: Despite his reputation as a ladies` man, singer James Blunt admits his greatest ambition in life is to have a family.

The 36-year-old singer who has dated Spanish beauty Sabina Vidal and supermodel Petra Nemcova in the past, admitted he hopes to have his own family one day, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"To fail at marriage would be really sad. Family is a really special thing and should be seen as one of the greatest ambitions," he said.
