Lady Gaga hopes to someday be Mother Monster to some real children of her own.
"I want to have tons of kids, actually. I think at least three," Gaga revealed at a Siruis XM town hall discussion on Friday in New York City. "I really want to have a family and I really want to nurture my children."
As most parental/child relationships go, the "Do What U Want" singer, 27, said her future children probably won't think her music is cool.
"To be honest, having my own kids will be like having three little monsters with me all the time. They probably won't be fans," she said, laughing. "In fact, they'll probably hate my music!
"But I want to have a family and live a family life," she continued. "I grew up with a very strong family and I just cannot imagine not having a normal nuclear family."
The singer has been spending a lot of time in Chicago, as boyfriend Taylor Kinney shoots "Chicago Fire" in the Windy City, and she's become a big fan of the area's trademark Italian specialty - a weakness Taylor is all too aware of.
"I love ordering Chicago pizza," she said. "My boyfriend caught me once eating it in the bathroom in the middle of the night. I woke up in the middle of the night, and I walked it into the bathroom and I was eating it.
"I heard the door opening - I had the pizza in my mouth and he just shook his head at me and he was like, 'That is just shameful,'" she said.
