Keke Palmer wants 10 kids.

The 30-year-old actress has Leodis, 13 months, with ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson but is keen to have enough children to make a "soccer team" and joked she wants to be like Diana Ross or Eddie Murphy, who have broods of five and 10 respectively.

She told Us Weekly magazine: "Honestly, I would like a soccer team of kids. Give me 10.I would love tons. I really want to just be, like, at least Diana Ross and at most Eddie Murphy. I want a lot of kids."

The 'Nope' star - who shot to fame as a teenager on Nickelodeon - recently explained that becoming a mother had made her "life so worth living" and things had always seemed "so painful" for her before.

Sharing a selection of photos and videos of Leodis, she wrote on Instagram on Leo's first birthday “Leo Beo!! Happy Birthday son I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

“You came into my life today at 3:25pm, but I knew even before then that you were the strongest person I ever knew. There were so many moments during my pregnancy where your silent strength would give me peace. This is something you still do just with your mere existence!

“You make my life so worth living. If I’m being honest I have always teeter tottered with life. I have just always been so annoyed by it and the ups and the downs and it has always seemed so painful for trivial reasons.

"Things could be so simple and they’re not and that always gave me a bitter feeling.

"But since you my son, I have no confusion on why I am here! On my purpose or my value or why I should stay. I wanna stay for you. I want to be here to love and protect you and watch you be the good in this world!”
