What is the best way to tell someone that you want to have a child with him?

Obviously this varies by individual, but I want to express my desire to have a child to my boyfriend without freaking him out. I want him to really consider it as a possibility and not overreact to the idea. Any suggestions for approaches? I've been subtle -- enjoying other peoples' babies, etc. This is a good time in my life - I'm between careers - and it is a good time in his life, in my opinion. And, by the way, we generally communicate very well and openly with each other.
