Rihanna isn't looking to be a single mom.
Not that she doesn't think she could raise a child on her own, but…
"I definitely think a child deserves both parents," the songstress says in the new issue of Interview magazine. "It would be selfish of me, because of my pride and independence to say, ‘Oh, I just want a sperm donor, because I can do it myself.' I can do it myself, but that's not fair."
Ideally, she'd like to get married, but it's not a definite. "I'm just saying that whatever comes my way I'll be able to handle it," says, Rihanna, 22, who is dating Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. "But in a perfect book, there would be marriage and kids."
She's certainly not looking to rush things. "I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids," says the singer, who released her fifth studio album Loud earlier this month. "So...whenever the time is right, I'll just know. I don't really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right."
As for what she thinks her kids will be like, Rihanna said, "I know God will probably want me to have a daughter just so I could see what I put my mother through. But on the other hand, I really love little boys. So it would just be fly either way."
Private life aside, Rihanna insists she has no plans to ditch music if her acting career takes off. She costars in the upcoming action flick Battleship with Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson and Taylor Kitsch. "I didn't know if I was going to like it or hate it or love it," she says of the movie work. "But I actually enjoy it and it's something that I'm looking forward to in the future. But I'll never shut off music and just do film. I love music too much."
