JUSTIN Bieber wants to be a "young dad".
The 'Baby' hitmaker - who has been dating model and actress Selena Gomez since the start of the year - admitted he is keen to have settled down and started a family by the time he is "25 or 26".
When asked where he sees himself over the coming years, he told WWD: "Well, by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family. I want to be a young dad.
"I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do - to be successful, to do a movie or whatever.
"But if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25."
The 17-year-old singer - who was born in London, Ontario, and grew up in Stratford, Ontario - has previously explained he wants to raise his future children in his native country of Canada.
Speaking about living in Los Angeles, Justin said: "I think it would be cool to get a condo out here, but eventually I'll probably want to move back to Canada and raise my family. Why? I dunno, I'm Canadian, I feel like I want my kids to be Canadian."
