The Rolling Stones rocker wed third wife Sally Humphries - who, at 34, is 31 years his junior - on Friday and now the couple are keen to start trying for a family together as soon as possible.
A friend of the newlyweds told the Sunday People newspaper: "Sally has always wanted to have children and thinks Ronnie will be a great dad to them now he's settled down. They have enjoyed being by themselves and have a real laugh, but a baby is something they both really want in the near future."
Ronnie - who has four grown-up children from his first two marriages - has been inspired by his two best men Rod Stewart, 67, and Paul McCartney, 70, who both have young children.
The source added: "Ronnie thinks the world of Rod and they spend a lot of time together. There isn't really any pressure to have kids but it seems like the natural thing to do. The feeling is that if Rod can do it, so can Ronnie."
Ronnie and Sally - who were dating for six months - secretly tied the knot at the Dorchester Hotel, in Mayfair, London.
