The `Love and Other Drugs` actress - who has been in a relationship with actor Adam Schulman for two years - wants to start a family, but admits she is not ready to settle down just yet.
She is quoted by the Daily Express newspaper as saying: "I`m dying to be a mum. I`m not ready for it yet but it`s one of the joys of life that I`m looking forward to so very much."
While Anne, 28, isn`t ready havechildren yet, she and Adam recently took their relationship to the next level by moving in together.
A source said in December: "She`s moved into his Brooklyn pad. They`ve been together for a long time, so she`s confident about moving in with him."
Anne started dating Adam shortly after splitting from Raffaello Follieri - who was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison in 2008 after pleading guilty to cheating investors out of millions of dollars - but the brunette beauty recently insisted it never put her off the idea of finding love again.
She said: "I think the thing that I have learnt is that a bad love experience is no reason to fear a new love experience. Everybody has bad relationships and, at the end of the day, they are just a great way to set yourself up for a good relationship."
