Monaco's royal couple-to-be thinking baby

Prince Albert II of Monaco and his bride-to-be Charlene Wittstock say in an interview published in France they're looking to become parents soon after they tie the knot next month.

The blond, 33-year-old South African has told France's Journal Du Dimanche weekly that "starting a family is in our plans" and "we hope to have a child soon."

Albert _ a 53-year-old longtime bachelor _ said in the paper's interview with the couple published Sunday that "When you talk about a baby, you are looking at me. But I won't be carrying it."

The pair are expected to take their vows in a civil marriage on the tiny Mediterranean principality known for gambling, wealth and glitterati on July 1, followed by a religious ceremony a day later in the palace courtyard.
