I have noticed that while making a document of the report-type, the title page is basically set to page-number 0, i.e. pages are numbered from one beginning from the next page.

Consider for instance this MWE

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\title{My Report}
\author{A.U. Thor}
\begin{document}
\maketitle % Title page should be page number 1

\chapter{Introduction}
\blindtext
\chapter{An Overview}
\blindtext

\end{document}

In the image below, I have left out the title page, but notice that the next page where the first chapter begins is labelled as page 1, instead of page 2 which I would prefer.

How do I achieve this?
