a would-be circularity

Question

Imagine two people, a man and a woman who are both unmarried. The man, full of desire about the woman says to her ''i want you to be the mother of my children''. Is there something strange about this utterance (i.e. circularity);

I describe a situation where both are not only unmarried, but also don't have yet children. I'm not sure, of course, but the utterance at issue seems to me as it would bear -in a sense- some kind of circularity or self-reference. But, even if this happens, it is still difficult -i think- to specify the source of circularity or self-reference.
