Despite tabloid speculation that the break-up between Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer hinged on the insistence by the 39-year-old actress on having a baby, John says that he has every intention of starting a family — someday. Furthermore, in a new interview with the Connecticut Post, the 30-year-old singer and songwriter says that when he does become a dad it will take precedence over his burgeoning music career. Says John,

"I want to be in love and have someone love me. I want a nice home. I’m going to have kids and I’m going to be the father who’s standing behind the bus when my son or daughter leaves for the first day of kindergarten. And, oh yeah, the tour has to end on this date, whatever, because I have to be there for the first day of school."

John’s summer tour concluded last Sunday in West Palm Beach, Fla.

I’d love to be the mother of his kids, sounds like a good idea to me. Haha.

I went and saw him this summer, it was outside, and it rained HARD. But it was still one of the best concerts i’ve ever been too. Although Jack Johnson still has him beat by a little bit.

He is so fantastically talented and I love his honesty and humor.

Saw him perform a month ago. Amazing as always!

Sounds like Aniston is not taking his calls, so he has to let her know thru the press…

Funny the world of celebrity. Being a good parent includes being at the first day of class but still touring means your career is a huge priority. Not that you can’t be famous and be a good parent but it’s a different world entirely. Especially if you’re a male celeb.

Marry me, please?!

Nicole on

yea, it would include school and making a living for your child the way you see fit. I mean, its the same thing we all do everyday, right Patterson? lol… nothing mean did i mean by it. Just pointing out that yes its different being a celeb by far. However, I think we all have the same goals when it comes to being good parents🙂
