Gareth Gates wants at least seven children.The 'Dancing On Ice' star - who is marrying his girlfriend of five years, Suzanne Mole, this year - is planning to have a huge family as soon as possible.Gareth, 23, said: "I want lots of kids and we'll all live together in a big house. In fact, I want to have a family like the Von Trapps in 'The Sound Of Music'!"The former 'Pop Idol' contestant also revealed Suzanne is his dream woman.He said: "On New Year's Eve, in front of 20 friends, I asked her to marry me. It was a really amazing moment, although not a total surprise to Suzanne. We've been together for five years and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with her! "It's not a problem that she's nine years older than me. We've always been fine about the age difference."Gareth insists his fiancée is not jealous about him spending so much time with his 'Dancing On Ice' partner Maria Fillipov.

He said: "Maria and I clicked immediately. We have similar personalities. Suzanne is relaxed about it. She's a dancer and understands what is involved.

"Anyway, it's not as if Maria and I are doing it behind closed doors. We're dancing in front of millions of people."
