London: 'The Lord of The Rings' star Elijah Wood says he can't wait to get married and have children but he is in no rush to tie the knot.

The 30-year-old actor, who split up from Gogol Bordello drummer Pamela Racine last year, has spent most of his adult life filming the 'Lord of the Rings' movies but he says he wants to settle down in life.

"Eventually, I want to get married and have kids. I don't have it written down when it's going to happen for me at the moment though. I would love to have a family one day. I've got a lot of friends who have families and it's a time in my life that I look forward to. It's also the kind of thing where you need to have things in place beforehand," Wood said.

Wood, who played Frodo Baggins in the 'Lord of the Rings' movie trilogy and reprises his role in the upcoming 'The Hobbit' films, says despite his busy career he always makes time to date.

"I've been busy so I'm not in a relationship at the moment, but there's always time for women," he said.
