Kirsten Dunst has babies on her brain.

The Beguiled star, 35, admitted her baby fever has only recently kicked in. Since working in Hollywood at a very young age, Dunst is looking to write the next chapter in her life, possibly as a mother.

“I’m at a stage in my life where I’m like, I’ve been working since I was 3. It’s time to have babies and chill,” Dunst said in Marie Claire U.K.‘s July issue.

“I wasn’t one of those ‘I need a baby!’ people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much,” added Dunst, who is engaged to actor Jesse Plemons.

Being a godmother has influenced Dunst to have a child of her own, so much so that she has a new lease on love.

“That love is just like… you can’t experience that unless you have a kid,” the actress continued. “I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, ‘Where’s Kiki?’ I just love that love. That’s what I want.”

Dunst and Plemons, 29, played a married couple on season 2 of the FX series Fargo and their chemistry continued off-screen as they were seen spending time together off set and attended red-carpet events together. News of their engagement surfaced in January.
