The `Baby` hitmaker - who is dating Selena Gomez - turned 18 yesterday on 02.03.12 but is already looking to the future and says he hopes to have children before he turns 30.
He explained: "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."
Justin also revealed he is looking forward to more independence now he has turned 18, but says his mother Pattie Mallette will not be too pleased with that.
He told MTV News: "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. Probably won`t be able to get away from her for too long. 18 is going to be fun. I look forward to a lot of touring and a lot of spending time with my fans, so 18 is going to be a great year."
