(Newser) – Start the countdown, girls. In a mere seven years, the Biebs plans to be married ... with children. "I want to be a young dad," Justin Bieber told Women's Wear Daily. "I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do—to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25." Any candidates on the horizon? He'll only say that current girlfriend Selena Gomez is "amazing." But he's not ready to marry now, said Bieber, 17, whose mom was just a teenager when she gave birth to him.

"I love to play sports and stuff," Bieber told the magazine. "I love just hanging out with my friends. I'm just a regular 17-year-old. I grew up playing hockey so I like to get on the ice every once in a while. I love to play basketball and I try to play soccer as much as I can."
