London (Agencies): Hollywood star George Clooney and his Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis have no plans to start a family in the near future.

The 49-year-old hunk has been dating Canalis, 32, since 2009 and the model says she is not keen on children, Female First reported.

"Getting pregnant has never been an objective for me. My maternal desires are fully satisfied with my dogs," said Canalis.

Opening up about her love for the 'Ocean's Eleven' star, Canalis said that she believes American men are more emotional than their Mediterranean counterparts.

"Italian men find it really hard to say, 'I love you.' In summary, American men are more open from an emotional standpoint."

The couple loves riding the bikes and cruising the western coastline of the United States.

"We love the coast. The Pacific Highway, with its rocks, the surfers and the ocean," she adds.
