The `Rehab` hitmaker is reportedly keen to settle down with boyfriend Reg Traviss and doesn`t want to bring up her children in London, because she thinks a "big country home" would be best for her kids.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Amy is really desperate to be a mum. She and Reg have talked about moving out of London and they want a big country home for their family including a large kitchen, rooms for friends to come and stay and a recording studio.
"She`ll always have a pad in the capital because that`s where her heart is but she wants the best start possible for her children."
The 27-year-old singer has previously battled substance abuse problems, but now spends a lot of her free time cooking.
The source added: "She spends her free time cooking hearty meals for her friends and family including chicken soups and pastas, feeding everyone up."
Singer Dionne Bromfield, Amy`s goddaughter, recently revealed Amy was very "motherly" and often cooked up spaghetti for her when she visits.
Dionne said: "She`s always saying, `Are you hungry?` She loves to feed you, that`s all she wants to do - feed you. She makes spaghetti and meatballs. I`m not even joking, you`d end up fat coming out of her house!
"She`s very homely, motherly-like. She also cooks salmon stuff - that`s probably the Jewish side of her coming out - and she does amazing chicken soup."
