Singer Lisa Loeb is ready to take the next step and add motherhood to her resume, she reveals in an interview with OK!‘s Red Carpet Confidential. After tying the knot with Late Night with Conan O’Brien‘s music coordinator Roey Hershkovitz in January, the newlyweds are more than ready to start a family. “That’s the next big project,” says Lisa, adding that she would “love to have children.”

With fond memories of a “great childhood,” the 40-year-old songstress looks forward to creating a similar safe haven for her future kids. “Everybody says it’s an amazing experience to have your own kids, whether you adopt them or have them yourself,” she explains. While the benefits of motherhood are countless, Lisa can’t help but joke that reliving her school days with her children will hopefully allow for her to absorb some of the educational material she may have missed out on the first time!

“I’m looking forward to going back through all of school and doing my homework with them. Learning all the things that I left out, through their eyes.”

Up next for Lisa is the debut of her glasses line this spring.

Lisa has come a long way from her show about her singlehood. I’m so happy for her and I’m sure we’ll hear a pregnancy announcement on here one day soon.

I have to say, I can listen to “Stay” every day of the week and still love that song!

I don’t have kids yet but I work in a School and it’s amazing! I’m learning right beside the kids things that I forgot in Elementary & Middle School and I love it! Some things I don’t even think the Teachers taught me or maybe I just wasn’t paying attention back then! 🙂

“Everybody says it’s an amazing experience to have your own kids, whether you adopt them or have them yourself.” Way to go, Lisa! Adopted kids are as much “your own” as biological ones are, and I’m happy to finally see a celeb (other than Angelina and Brad, that is) acknowledge that! 🙂

I reckon she’ll be pregnant with twins by the end of the year!

Lisa is so cool! The fact that she’s a big knitter alone is enough to love her, but she’s got so much more.

Lisa is so pretty! I watched a few episodes of her reality show about finding a husband a while back – it was a good show. Happy to hear that she did eventually find love!
