Professor Green and his wife, former Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, are not ready to start a family yet because their two pet dogs take up so much of their time.

The 30-year-old Remedy hit-maker and 25-year-old Mackintosh won't be hearing the pitter-patter of feet in the near future.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Green, real name Stephen Manderson, said, ''Our dogs are our b****y children at the moment. Looking after two dogs, one of whom is a pup, is a chore. But yeah I wouldn't swap them for the world.''

He added, "We're both so busy in our careers it's definitely not the right time to have children yet. It is on the agenda but I think we both want to be a bit more secure before we do it, and then take the dive into the unknown.''

Green and Mackintosh tied the knot in September, 2013.
