Sheryl Crow First Became a Mom at 45 — Meet the Country Singer's Lovely Sons Wyatt and Levi
Country music star Sheryl Crow did not experience motherhood until she was 45 years old. She is now a doting mother to her two beautiful children — Wyatt and Levi.
In 2007, Sheryl Crow adopted her eldest child, son Wyatt, soon after his birth. Three years later, she adopted another son, whom she named Levi.
A mother's role can be challenging at times, but the multi-awarded singer was more than willing to take on the responsibilities. Here's everything you need to know about her children.

WYATT STEVEN CROW
Crow adopted her first child, son Wyatt, in 2007. In a 2014 interview, the singer opened up about her decision to adopt Wyatt.
Crow revealed that her decision came after experiencing an epiphany. She said that over a decade earlier, her priorities changed after battling breast cancer.
Crow, who has contributed to a number of film soundtracks, became Wyatt's mother almost a year after she moved to Nashville in 2006. He has since brought countless joys to her life.

Crow decided to expand her family with her adoption of Levi in 2010. At the time, she revealed the announcement on her website. Crow wrote:
"I have some exciting news to share with you guys — Wyatt has a new little brother! Levi James was born April 30th."
The singer's children may soon follow in her footsteps. Levi and his big brother, who appear to be honing their singing skills already, may pursue a singing career like their famous mother.

A SPECIAL DECISION
In 2017, Crow said in an interview that adopting Wyatt and Levi has been the "biggest everlasting event that has informed everything."
According to her, having her boys has made her reevaluate what is important for her. The vocalist said she would not like to spend any more nights away from home.
Crow is very protective when it comes to her sons' privacy. In fact, the singer rarely shares photos of them on social media.
THE SINGER'S RELATIONSHIPS
Crow has had several high-profile romantic relationships. In the late '90s, she had a relationship with musician Eric Clapton. After they split, Crow started dating actor Owen Wilson, but their relationship did not work either.
In 2003, Crow started dating cyclist Lance Armstrong. The twosome announced their engagement in September 2005. But the singer's dream of a family fell apart when her wedding to Armstrong was canceled.
They jointly announced their split in February 2006. Later, she discovered she had cancer. However, her heartbreak and cancer diagnosis helped her focus on what she truly wanted.
While she has never gotten married, Crow, who has released ten studio albums, still made it a priority to have children, and she has done just that.
Crow once confessed that motherhood makes a huge difference. She said Wyatt and Levi are on her mind first thing in the morning. They are also the last ones she thinks of at night.
