The `Les Miserables` actress - who wed actor Adam Shulman in September - has always wanted children but wanted to have a successful career before she embarked on motherhood and she now feels like the time is right to start a family.
She said: "I`ve wanted to be a mom since I was 16.
"But I also wanted to have a career, so I have been chomping at the bit to be a mother for a really long time. I also had to find a baby daddy first - which I now have."
Adam popped the question to Anne earlier this year, but couldn`t keep the proposal a surprise because the 30-year-old screen beauty had told him she was going to cut all her hair off for her role as tragic Fantine in `Les Miserables`.
She told The Sun newspaper: "My now husband looked at me with pride, joy and slight panic.
"I said, `What`s the matter?` and he said, `OK, without giving anything away about what is coming in the next few months, how do you feel about being a short-haired bride?` and I went, `Nooooooooo!` "
