Zeta Jones's plans for more children
Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas
The Hollywood couple are due to marry on Saturday
As Swansea-born actress Catherine Zeta Jones prepares for her wedding, her fiance Michael Douglas has been speaking about her plans for more children.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, 56-year-old Mr Douglas revealed that she wanted three children.

Ms Jones, 31, gave birth to their son Dylan Michael in Beverly Hill back in August and is said to be by family friends to be "thoroughly enjoying" motherhood.

"Catherine wants three, so that will need negotiating," Mr Douglas told the newspaper.

"I've got to talk about that third one."

With the wedding at New York's Plaza hotel on the weekend, Ms Jones has been supervising the redecoration of the New York apartment Mr Douglas has owned for the past 15 years.

"She's comfortable and feels secure enough with herself and our relationship that there's no, 'I can't be here, your ex-wife used to be here,'' he said.

The wedding ceremony on Saturday follows months of talks between solicitors representing the couple to thrash out an agreed pre-nuptial agreement.

It is believed that in the event of the couple splitting up, Ms Jones would receive 1m for every year they had been married.

In another clause written in by the actress, she will receive a 3.4m pay out if her husband - rumoured to have a 150m fortune - is unfaithful.
