Riri wants baby in next five years

Rihanna wants to have a baby in the next five years.

The 25-year-old singer revealed her plans for the next few years include starting a family with on/off boyfriend Chris Brown - who is on probation for assaulting her in 2009 - and preparing for a life without touring.

In an interview with Elle UK magazine, she said: "I will probably have a kid. And I'm praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I'll have to set some things up so I don't have to tour for the rest of my life."

The 'Stay' hitmaker recently spoke of her love for the 23-year-old rapper and admitted she couldn't continue to bury her feelings for him, even after the assault.

She said: "I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me, to feel the consequences of that. So when that s**t [love] came back, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

"Like, God, you've got to be kidding me right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn't bury the way I felt."
