Miranda Lambert: 'Puppies are my babies, for now!'

Country superstar Miranda Lambert has revealed that she's not quite ready to have children just yet, but she's more than happy to play mother to her puppies. 

The 'Mama's Broken Heart' sensation told E! News that she is maternal, but doesn't have time to raise a family at the moment because of her crazy schedule: 

"We have a lot of four-legged babies. Every time we think I might be thinking about it I get a puppy and I'm like, 'No. not ready.' We're so busy. It's a whole whirlwind. We'd just like to be a little more settled."

Lambert, meanwhile, picked up some awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards over the weekend and won the Female Vocalist of the Year and Single Record of the Year prizes. 

Back in March, the beauty told People Country magazine that she has calmed down a lot more now that she has established herself as an artist: "That attitude brought me here and got me where I am. But that was me in my 20s. The chip on my shoulder is gone. At some point, you calm down. I'm happy. I'm more settled. I've put down roots. I feel like people have accepted me for who I am, with all the craziness, loudness and fire."
