Los Angeles - George and Amal Clooney "really want" to have a baby.

The 54-year-old actor and the British human rights lawyer, who got married in Italy nine months ago, have reportedly decided they are ready to make having a family a priority.

A source close to the couple said: "They decided that it would be the right time. Amal isn't taking on extra work at the moment and just continuing with the cases she has.

"This is something they really want."

The 37-year-old beauty hopes to give birth in London a few months after they move back into their $15m home in Berkshire, which is undergoing extensive renovations.

The insider told Us Weekly magazine: "The building plans include a nursery. They hope to have all the work done by Christmas."

The Gravity actor previously admitted having children wasn't high on his list of priorities.

Speaking in May, he said: "I mean, I've thought about it, I suppose. But I haven't really - it hasn't been high on my list of...I've been asked it a lot lately because I've gotten married and I'm doing a movie with kids in it..."

But the Oscar winner is said to have changed his mind after spending time with some of Amal's friends and their children.

The source added: "[He] loves the relationships his friends have with their kids. George is ready for this step and he thinks that Amal will be a great mother." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
