Count related objects via ORM

Is it possible to count related objects without selecting all of them? Now possible is:


However ORM selects every addresses related to user and then count them. I would like to only execute:

SELECT count() FROM... 

is it possible somehow with ORM?

Yes it is:

    'columns'=>array('count(user) as count')
    'conditions'=>'user = :user:',

Of course where Address is your Address class and user is correct column.
