Chilli doesn’t say no to having children with boyfriend Matthew Lawrence – but she has to get married first.

Speaking on the “Ryan Cameron Uncensored” radio show on Friday, the TLC singer simply said “you never know” if she would have children with the “Boy Meets World” actor.

“I would never say that (I’m done with families),” she added after breaking into a fit of nervous laughter.

The singer, 52, also made it clear that she wants to get married before starting a family. However, it sounds like it could also happen in the near future.

“I must be married … and I am not married, yet” she said cheekily.

Chilli’s family plans with her boyfriend come after Lawrence, 43, told “Entertainment Tonight” earlier this month that he and Chilli have a “game plan” to start a family.

But during the radio show, the singer clarified that his comments were taken out of context and that he was talking about his older brother Joey Lawrence’s family plans rather than their own.

“They didn’t show that part, but when you go ahead and watch the whole interview, you see that he didn’t talk about us working on having a baby … because that’s not what’s happening,” the singer – who already shares son Tron , 25, with ex Dallas Austin – said.

Matthew also clarified his initial comments, telling E! News, “Joe and I were upset about this plan for us to have kids together … growing up. And I missed the first trip and now he’s starting a new family and I thought : ‘Man, it would be great if we could do it again when I didn’t have the opportunity to start a family together.’

“So that’s what I meant by that,” he continued. “I didn’t mean to put pressure on anyone I was dating or anything.”

Chilli says she wants to get married before starting a family with Lawrence.

Despite the confusion, the “Boy Meets World” alum continued to gulp about his leading lady, who he says would make an “amazing” life partner.

“She’s an amazing person,” the actor said. “She’s already a mother, she has an incredible son. I respect so much how she’s raised him. She’d be an incredible mother again and I’d be incredibly lucky, but that’s the way it is in the future.”

The “Waterfalls” singer confirmed she was dating Lawrence in January, nearly five months after they first sparked romance rumors.

Before his relationship with Chilli – whose real name is Rozonda Thomas – Lawrence was married to Cheryl Burke. The former couple were married for three years before finalizing their divorce in September 2022.

Despite their split, Burke supported her ex after hearing he was hoping to start a family.

“I really, really hope he can actually have a kid with Chilli,” she said on an episode of “The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever with Chris Harrison.”

In fact, the “Dancing With the Stars” alum said she wasn’t “surprised” by the revelation because the actor “always wanted” to be a father.
