Paul Bettany revealed his wish to expand his family with wife, Jennifer Connelly, with whom he worked with in A Beautiful Mind.

When asked if they had any plans to do something together again he replied, “Make babies.”

Paul, 36, is already father to the couple’s 4-year-old son, Stellan, and stepdad to Jennifer’s 10-year-old son, Kai (from her relationship with photographer David Dugan).

“Or practice making babies,” he amends.

“Oh, you mean work-wise?” he told People magazine at Monday’s Elle Women in Hollywood event at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons Hotel. “I’d love to work with Jennifer. She’s quite good at acting, so it would be foolish for me to pass up the opportunity if it came.”

Jennifer, also 36, was one of the night’s honorees, along with Scarlett Johansson, Diane Lane, Kate Bosworth, Amy Adams, Lauren Bacall and director Julie Taymor.

“I’m kind of like the eye candy,” Paul said at the largely female event. “You know, as we walk down the red carpet, I know everybody’s kind of looking at us thinking, ‘How did she snag him?’ So it boosts my confidence.”

Best wished to the couple in theit family expanding endeavors!

    He’s not cocky, he is totally joking. He always cracks jokes like that. He really means the exact opposite of what he said.

    Paul Bettany is hilarious. He was obviously just kidding about being “eye candy”. He’s a fantastic actor & if you have seen him interviewed, you’d see that he’s actually very humble & often comments about how “he” landed such a beautiful wife. He seems to adore her & they make a great couple. If you ever check out “A Knight’s Tale” dvd, the directors comments are really hysterical. In it, Paul Bettany & the director make jokes throughout. He obviously doesn’t take himself too seriously. I think he’s absolutely charming, fun & I do think he’s cute.
