Susan Boyle has shared her hopes to become a foster parent, revealing that not having a child is her “biggest regret”.
The I Dreamed A Dream singer is currently gearing up for her first UK tour in five years, in honour of the 10-year anniversary of the Britain’s Got Talent audition that shot her to worldwide fame.
However, she says that when things “quieten down”, she’s keen to “get into fostering”.
Speaking to The Sun, Susan explained: “I’m 58 so I’ve got something to bring my family home to. I’ve a lovely house, why not share it?”
Susan went on to say there were “a couple” of children in her life “who think the world of me”, adding: “I love kids. I never had any of my own, that’s my biggest regret, but I love kids. They’re good fun to be with.
“I am happy. I am loving every minute, loving life and bring on the rest.”
Back in 2014, Susan spoke of her desire to adopt a child, saying at the time: “I have so much love to give, I have so much to give someone that I want to adopt.
“I want to adopt a child who doesn’t have much, someone who I can really give something to. It’s a way of giving back for me. I want to give a youngster what I didn’t have, and now I can do that.”
Earlier this year, Susan marked the anniversary of her Britain’s Got Talent audition by returning to the talent show, delivering another performance of her signature song, I Dreamed A Dream.
Later in the series, she was also a musical guest during the BGT final, where she sang The Greatest Showman cut A Million Dreams with Michael Ball.
