Justin Bieber wants to be a young father

London: Teen pop star Justin Bieber, who recently turned 18, says he hopes to have children before he turns 30.

The `Baby` hitmaker is currently dating Selena Gomez and said he wants to be a young father and settle down soon, reported Aceshowbiz.

"I see myself in 10 years having a family. 28, that`s a good time to really have a family because I want to be a young dad. Maybe, it`s a long time away though. Don`t get any ideas, people. It`s not happening anytime soon.

"18 requires a lot of responsibilities; moving out requires me to be alone, without my parents. So, legally, I can make any decision I want. My mom`s still going to be there, probably, calling me every day," Bieber said.
