Pink wants to have five kids, 18 dogs, a horse and a pig within 10 years.

The 'So What' hitmaker - who has 18-month-old daughter Willow with husband Carey Hart - is desperate to extend her family to include a ''basketball team'' of children, as well as plenty of animals, because she thinks becoming a mother is the ''best thing'' she has ever done.

She said: ''I want a basketball team. It's the best thing I've done. In 10 years I'll have an 11 year old and an eight year old and a five year old and a three year old and a six month old and 18 dogs, a horse and a pig.''

But Pink nearly didn't even get to tie the knot with motocross racer Carey as on the day she met him at the 2001 X Games, an extreme sports event, he had a terrible crash and the 33-year-old star - whose real name is Alecia Moore - thought he was dead.

She explained: ''He fell 40ft and broke 14 bones the day I met him. I thought he was dead. I was like, 'Wow, he was cute, he would have made a good baby daddy.' Then I ran into him a couple of months later and the rest...''

Pink proposed to Carey in 2005 by holding up a card saying, ''Will you marry me?'', during one of his races which led to him pulling out of the event to pick her up - and she insists the 37-year-old rider will ''always'' be her ''love'' no matter what occurs in the future.

She added to Stella magazine: ''Regardless of whatever happen, he'll always be my love.''
