She became well-known when she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 and catapulted to stardom. For her first ever podcast interview on Sunday, Susan Boyle revealed that she wanted to be a mother.


Susan Boyle, now-58, became an international star after she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. At the time, her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” went viral and she became a household name.

In a recent podcast interview with The Sun’s columnist Dan Wootton, she opened up about wanting to become a foster parent. She confessed: “Well, when things quiet down a bit I would like to maybe go at fostering.”


Boyle referred to things quieting “down a bit” because she’s currently got her hands full this year. At the moment, she’s competing on America’s Got Talent: The Champions and releasing a new album.

The singer also admitted that she regretted not having children of her own because “I love kids.” She added that children were “good fun to be with.”


Another thing that had her considering foster parenting was that she now had a “lovely house, why not share it?” During the interview that runs weekly, Wootton also mentioned to Boyle that children appeared to love being around her as well.

The musician then admitted, “I’ve got a couple who think the world of me.” She also shared that her current focus in life was all the positive things she was experiencing.


Boyle even revealed that she felt quite young for a person in her late fifties. Her music is also a great element to her youngness, “Thinking on the positive things, the fact I’ve got a tour this year… that keeps me young.”

The star explained that “All the adrenaline keeps me young.” Wootton also wanted to know whether the singer thought she would ever find love.


Her answer seemed unsure as she responded “probably” and quickly added, “that’s not an advert.” She explained her response clarifying, “I am happy, I am loving every minute, loving life.”

Boyle recently released a new album, titled TEN in honor. The album pays tribute to her 10-year music career and also comes after an 18-month break.

Speaking about her 10-year milestone in an earlier interview the musician said: “I think the biggest surprise is that I’m still going after 10 years.” She explained that being famous had never been her “motivator.”

Boyle stated that she sang for people to “give them joy, happiness, suspend reality for a brief time and entertain.”
