Rihanna stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres show earlier this week, and was asked about her interest in starting a family.

DeGeneres first asked the singer if she wants to have children, and Rihanna, 24, replied, “Yes, eventually. I mean absolutely.”

Rihanna was then asked if she wants to wait until she is involved with someone before having kids.

“I would prefer to, you know, have a full family. I’m pretty sure I could handle if I had to on my own but that’s not what I’m striving for,” she answered. In addition to appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Rihanna also has a cover spread in GQ magazine’s latest issue.

In the interview, titled, "Rihanna: Obsession of the Year," the artist discusses love, in addition to her sexuality both on stage and behind the scenes. "Love makes you go places you probably wouldn't ever go, had it not been for love. But I think everybody still has their limits," she revealed.

She also addressed her sexuality -- Rihanna often posts promiscuous photos to her Twitter account, including one with a female stripper’s face between her thighs, and many of her songs are sexually suggestive, such as "Cockiness" and "Rude Boy."

“That comes from my culture," Rihanna told GQ. "That's just the way it's always been, and I think that for people, especially in America, they make it like the forbidden fruit, but that only makes kids more curious." 

Rihanna is promoting her seventh album, "Unapologetic," which will be available on Nov. 19.
