Jenna Fischer is yearning to become a mother after becoming a first-time aunt and forming such a close bond with her baby niece.
The star's sister, Emily, recently gave birth to daughter Cecelia and the 36 year old admits spending quality time with the tot has reignited her dream of starting her own family with her writer husband Lee Kirk.
And the baby storyline surrounding her character Pam on the U.S. version of TV comedy The Office has only boosted her desire for motherhood.
She tells Redbook magazine, "I already wanted kids, but even more so now.
"When Cecelia was three weeks old, Pam was on maternity leave, so I had a whole week off to spend with her.
"I took charge of the night feedings. It was so awesome. Every night at 9.30, I'd say, 'You guys go to sleep now.'
"I wanted CeCe all to myself. We really bonded."
