Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger are ready to have children
The couple - who have been in a relationship since 2006 - are "working on" starting a family, the actor has admitted.
Asked if they plan to havechildren, Joshua said: "Kids are one of those things that kind of happen, aren`t they?
"Certainly we`re working on it if that`s what you`re asking."
Both Joshua and Diane - who was previously married to Guillaume Canet for five years from 2001 - have previously insisted they have no desire to tie the knot, and though it is still not "important" for them to make their union official, they won`t rule it out completely.
Joshua told E! Online: "It`s important for the people that it`s important for, but neither one of us are particularly religious so I don`t think that there`s any particular push. But never say never."
Earlier this year, Joshua, 33, sparked engagement speculation after he won a $45,000 necklace at auction and was quoted as announcing it to be an "engagement gift" for the 35-year-old blonde beauty and the `Fringe` star joked the purchase was a "horrible mistake" because of the rumours it sparked.
He said: "I made a horrible mistake at an auction by raising my hand when I shouldn`t have, and it started a bunch of rumours that were very, very costly. We`re not engaged."
