After getting engaged just last month, power couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are already talking babies. After being highly criticized for their premature engagement, a Cyrus family source tells UsMagazine.com that “Miley and Liam really want to have a baby quickly.” The rush to start a family may have been sparked by Hemsworth’s brother Chris Hemsworth, who just had a baby girl named India in May. Hemsworth, 22, and Cyrus, 19, were dating on and off for three years before he popped the question.

How do you know when it’s time to have children?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone dreams of starting a family, but the appropriate timing may not always be clear. Here are some surefire ways to know you’re that you’re ready to have a baby:

1. You’ve had enough alone time: Many people get married and try to start their family right away. However, this can sometimes be a mistake. Be sure to enjoy some romantic alone time in your marriage before you get ready for a larger family.

2. Your friends are having children: There’s no better way to experience parenthood than along with your friends. Since being a parent is a learning process, getting advice from people you trust who are going through it too can be helpful.

3. You’re financially secure: Having children can be a dream come true, but don’t let your excitement hinder reality. If you don’t have the money to support a family, don’t try to start one. You want your child to have the life they deserve, so if you aren’t able to make that, it’s best to wait.
