Stacy Keibler didn't think she would ever get married or have children.

The 34-year-old beauty, who is expecting her first child with Jared Pobre after splitting from George Clooney last year, insists she had no plans to settle down before meeting her new husband.

The former wrestler told the June/July issue of Fit Pregnancy magazine: ''Before we met, both Jared and I had told our parents we didn't think we'd ever get married or have kids, but when you're with the right person, everything changes.''

She added: ''My epiphany happened shortly after Jared and I started dating and, once we both knew, we didn't hesitate -- I just knew I was ready and that there's no one else in the world I would want to do this with.''

The couple, who are expecting a baby girl, tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Mexico in March and Stacy has no doubt Jared will be a good father.

She said: ''Jared is the most thoughtful, loving, kind person. I couldn't ask for a better father for my children. Our bond is so strong and special and getting pregnant has made it even more so. It's been so much fun preparing to become new parents together.''

The former model is really enjoying her pregnancy and feels very energetic.

She said: ''I haven't felt sick or tired so far -- instead, I've had an enthusiastic spark that I've been harnessing through exercise.

''I've always been conscious of what I put into my body, but now that I'm pregnant I can recognise the positive effects that effort has had.''

Stacy split from George, 53, last July amid rumours she wanted to start a family and he is now engaged to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin.
