Prince William popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton during a trip to Kenya in October. Now the couple, who will tie the knot next year, are already discussing starting a family.

First comes love, second comes marriage, then comes Prince William pushing a baby carriage! That’s right — the 28-year-old English prince, who announced his engagement to girlfriend Kate Middleton yesterday and gave her his late mother, Diana’s 18-carat engagement ring, is already thinking about starting his own little royal family.

“I hope we will be able to have a happy family ourselves,” says Kate, who sat down yesterday (Nov. 16) for her first interview since becoming engaged to the future King of England.

While William was quick to point out that they’re still basking in the glow of their engagement, he and Kate, 28, have been discussing eventually having babies after their wedding in the spring or summer next year. “We are hugely excited and we are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together and seeing what the future holds,” he says. “I think we’ll take it one step at a time. We’ll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the kids. But obviously we want a family so we’ll have to start thinking about that.”

We can’t wait to see a bunch of royal rugrats running around!
