‘I want to protect them at all times, I want to make them happy and feel loved. I just think they are wonderful,’ she said.

‘I never had children but that doesn’t mean I didn’t want them, and nor is it a regret.’

The musician has been open about her decision not to have her own kids in the past, sharing that despite being biologically able to carry a baby, she wanted to focus on her career instead of starting a family.

She made the comments in 2017 as she reflected on her battle with breast cancer of 2013.

Speaking on The Sun’s Bizarre Life podcast in 2017, the US star admitted that although in the past she ‘wanted, wanted, wanted’ a child, she took a step back to reassess what her true goals were.

‘I’m conscious of not having a child at this point in my life,’ she shared.

‘When I was younger I wanted, so the word wanted, wanted, wanted, was t. until a certain period when I was like, “This is not going to happen.” Like, “Imagine having a kid right now?”‘

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant – who has had breast cancer twice and undergone a double mastectomy – clarified that not having children is ‘an actual choice’ of hers, and is not influenced by her age.

‘I don’t feel less of a woman by not having a child.

‘I feel more of a woman by empowering myself to do what is right for me.’

She said that she has found her dream job, ‘and some people never find that,’ so she doesn’t want to be ‘greedy.’

Elsew. in her chat with The Mirror, the Left Outside Alone songstress gave readers an insight into her personal life, and who she is at home without the cameras, glitz and glam.

She revealed that her nickname is ‘Stage’ because it’s what her grandma always called her because she thought she ‘belonged on stage.’

And as famous as she is, when it comes to her perfect evening, Anastacia is just like the rest of us, as she said her ideal night would be ‘ordering in Chinese or Thai food and eating it in front of the television.’

‘I’d sit on the rug and watch a series or a movie with my family.’

On a deeper note, when asked what the bravest thing she’s ever done is, she said people would consider many things she has done as ‘brave’ but, to her, she simply thought ‘What else am I going to do?’

She referred to her double mastectomy, Crohn’s disease, heart surgery, neck surgery, and a long list of medical procedures, which she considers to be part of ‘survival.’

She also paid tribute to her parents for teaching her to ‘not judge people by the way they look’ and ‘don’t marry for money.’

Oh and she was also fired from one of her first jobs as a receptionist at a facial and massage clinic because her voice was ‘too loud’ for the ‘quiet environment.’
