Billy Zane: ‘I’m Ready for Fatherhood’

CAPTIONS: “I feel the family brewing,” Billy (above) tells us.

Billy Zane may not be hearing wedding bells, but he is sensing the pangs of parenthood.

Interviewed on BlogTalkRadio’s Olivia Wilder Times, the Titanic star, 43, hints that he’s pondering trading in his bachelor ways for a bassinet.

When a caller into the show asks, “Do you have kids and a family?” Billy replies:

“No children. And am not married at present. Was married when I was quite young, and I’m single right now – and kind of loving it. I hear the patter of little feet.

“But I foresee that – I sense it, I feel it, I feel it coming,” adds the actor, whose latest flick, Love N’ Dancing, opens May 8.

Moments later, when host Olivia Wilder asks Billy if he’s got a potential mommy in mind, he says:

“No. It’s just a sense that you get. I think I’m ready for fatherhood.

CAPTIONS: “We’re still quite close,” Billy says of Kelly (with him above, pre-split). “We’re good friends.”

“But I’m not out there hunting for my bride – as of yet.”

Last year, Billy reportedly broke up with his fiancée, British model Kelly Brook, after a five-year, on-again, off-again romance.

About that relationship, he confirms that the split is a “done deal,” though when asked if Kelly may be on his mommy-target list, Billy simply says:

“That’s not really anything I care to discuss with you – or the world.”

Oh, Snaps! Olivia Lands a ‘Titanic’ Photo Op

Heads up, Pauly, Olivia Wilder‘s moving in on your snaps action – and with a bona fide screen idol to boot!

At the Phoenix Film Festival in (where else?) Phoenix, Ariz., last week, the Olivia Wilder Times host chilled with Billy Zane.

Billy of course played Cal Hockley in the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, which earned a whopping $1.85 billion at the box office, making it the high- est-grossing film of all time.

"I almost broke the camera, but Billy (l) looked great," Olivia (r) tells us of this pic.

And next month he’ll be seen opposite Amy Smart in a new swing- dance flick called Love N’ Dancing.

The writer of that project, Tom Malloy, whom you know from his on- camera work on Law & Order-SVU, also stars in the movie. So Olivia didn’t waste any time cozying up to him, either.

In fact, she made such a good impression on Tom that he’ll be appear- ing on her show Friday, April 24.

Nice going, O!
