Chris Martin inspires Jay-Z to have a family

12/16/2007 at 06:16 AM ET

Consummate bachelor Jay-Z admitted hanging out with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin made him want to start his own family with girlfriend Beyonce. The rapper, 37, confessed spending time at the home Chris, 30, shares with wife Gwyneth Paltrow and their children, Apple, 3 ½, and Moses, 21 months, helped him realize he would like a similar life.

The guy’s humble, and he has a lovely family. It’s rare to meet such a genuinely good person… I don’t go to people’s houses and hang out, but I go to his house and hang out.

The Paltrow-Martin family showed Jay-Z, real name is Shawn Carter, that he’s ready for his own children.

Of course I want to have a family. Chris Martin has got a whole family. I’m like, "What am I doing?"

Jay-Z and Beyonce have dated since 2002, but tried unsuccessfully to keep the relationship quiet.

So nice to hear that men have that baby clock too! I can’t see Beyonce with a bump just yet. Eventually…but she’s too high on her career, right now. They would have beautiful children, all right.

Jay- Z has a son by a Trinidadian model allegedy.

He’ll have to wait a little bit longer I think. If her younger sister couldn’t get her to feel broody enough to start her own I don’t think he is going to convince her. She’s at the peak of her career and young enough to hold off babies. I have a suspicion if he’d have it his way they’d be parents already. At 38 it’s understandable he’ll be feeling this way. Maybe in 2 years time on his big 4-0.

I wonder if they will have kids soon. Like the others have mentioned, I always got the impression that Beyonce’s quite ambitious and would want to concentrate on her career for a while yet. But you never know.

Beyonce is 26 years old, I think, so she’s at least a decade younger than Jay Z, so I am sure she’s going to concentrate on her career until her 30’s. They’ve been in a relationship for quite a few years, but at least we know when Beyonce is ready, Jay-Z will be ready, too.

Also, this post shows that Chris and Gwyneth are still together, despite some rumors that have been floating around about them splitting. I guess it was because Gwyneth was in Spain for so long. Anyway, nice to hear about a lovely family.
