He came out of nowhere and conquered the blogging world with a take-no-prisoners approach to celebrity gossip on PerezHilton.com. Now Perez Hilton wants to be a daddy.

It's true.

That's what he says in an interview with London's Daily Mirror.

"I want to be the gay Angelina and have four children," he tells Mirror reporter Dean Piper. "I definitely want to have kids."

But will those kids have two dads? It doesn't matter. "Whether I have a man in my life or not," Hilton says. "I want kids."

Still, Hilton, 31, says he's going to at least try to get into a relationship first.
"I am going to get a boyfriend this year, I hope," he tells the Mirror. "And a good one. I feel like I'm finally ready for a man."

Hilton's real name is Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr. He has been very vocal about gay rights issues, including outing a number of celebrities, including Neil Patrick Harris. Hilton received massive media attention last year when, as a judge for the Miss USA pageant, he asked Miss California Carrie Prejean about her feelings regarding gay marriage.

Prejean answered that she thought it was "great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other ... same-sex marriage or opposite marriage," but she believed that marriage "should be between a man and a woman." She then became a spokesperson for the National Organization for Marriage, which was a violation of pageant rules and led to Prejean losing the Miss California crown.
