In a new interview, the Boy Meets World alum, 43, was asked if he and the 52-year-old singer want to have a family together.
“I hope. … That’s what we’re trying to do,” the actor replied.
"Life is always a surprise," he continued. "My life is in a complete bloom right now. I get to spend time with an amazing woman like Chilli. I've never gotten to be able to experience that kind of relationship before, so it's quite special. She's a really, really special human being. I wish more people on the planet were like her. We'd be much better off."
As for why the pair make a great couple, Lawrence replied: "She's just got, you know, her morals and her values. The way she treats her family. She loves my family, so important. We get along. We'll talk on the phone and she's like, 'My mom's calling me.' I'm like, 'Go get it. I know how important that is.' Same thing like my mom calls me. It's not like, 'Why are you talking to your mom?!' It's like, 'Oh, your mom. Go talk to your mom,' you know?"
"It's weird, you know, we have similar upbringings. We have similar families. There are similarities that you wouldn't necessarily think between us and it really works," he added.
Lawrence confirmed he met her family, which also includes her 25-year-old son Tron, whom she shares with ex Dallas Austin.

The two go way back, and Lawrence shared how the two reconnected.
"It was just real friendship, you know, for like five or six months, just talking on the phone long distance, like, getting to know each other, see each other here and there," he recalled. "But, really, just keeping it as friends and being, you know, let's keep our priorities straight here. We wanna know what we're all about. We don't wanna take this too fast."
"So we were at this thing. We were working. We just said hello in passing and probably nothing would've come of that, but there was this big snowstorm. I had to be back for work, so I was getting them [the airline] to change my flights all around. The only flight I could get was a connecting flight through Atlanta. She lives in Atlanta. So, she was flying on that flight. So, really it was the flight, talking and then afterwards saying, 'Hey, let's keep in contact.' That's really what made it, and it almost did not happen. I mean, literally, an hour before the flight took off they were like, 'OK, we got you on this flight. You gotta go.' So it was just like that kind of thing," he said of their meet-cute in an airport.
