GREAT REASONS TO HAVE CHILDREN: There are many reasons why a person may feel a yearning to have children, but surely there are no more pressing impulses driving the maternal instinct than the need to stop being vain, like Gwen Stefani:

"I imagine children will save me from my vanity, and they will become my passion and fill whatever fears I have right now.

"I don't want to drop off and not be on the radio and not be able to talk about myself for hours. I don't want it to go away. But at the same time, I never expected to be here in the first place."

- Mummy, do you love me?
- Of course, little Gwenette - for without you, I'd be the most self-centred person on the planet...
