Paris Hilton feels "broody".

The 30-year-old socialite -who has been dating nightclub mogul Cy Waits for a year - is smitten with her boyfriend, and would love to start a family in the future.

She said: "I feel broody sometimes. I'd love kids in the future. Cy's the best boyfriend I've ever had. I'm so happy with him."

The reality TV star also spoke out to defend former pal Lindsay Lohan, who was recently charged with stealing a necklace from an upmarket boutique, insisting the 'Mean Girls' actress is a "good person".

She said: "Lindsay is a good person so I want her to turn it around.

"We haven't been in touch recently because our lives have taken a different direction but I only wish her the best."

Paris' mother Kathy recently admitted she and her husband Rick would love to see their daughter settle down with Cy.

She said: "I know that they've been dating a little less than a year and I think she's waited this long. She adores him and I never ever ask or ever push that question with my girls because I got married so young, I never want them to feel pressure.

"Anyone that loves animals and is kind like that ... she'll be an incredible mom. I was at Macy's with her recently and there were 1,000 people there and the little children came up and she lights up. I could see babies and a wedding."
