Demi Lovato wants to have children “early”.
The singer was raised in Dallas, Texas, with her mother, stepfather and three sisters after her parents divorced.
Growing up with several siblings and learning about her heritage made the 21-year-old realize how important family is. However, she will focus on her career before settling down and becoming a parent.
“I’m a Texas girl, so my instinct is to have babies early. In my heart I’m like, ‘OK, it’s time to have babies!’” she laughed to the December issue of Latina magazine. “I have so much life ahead of me that I actually have to slow my roll. We’ll see where my life is in five years, but I definitely see myself as a mom in ten.”
Demi poses for a series of glamorous photos for the publication, one in which she is wearing a red figure-hugging dress as her long blonde curls fall past her shoulders.
Before starting a family she needs to find her perfect man and opened up about what she wants in a partner.
“I look for someone who makes me laugh,” she insisted. “Because 20, 30 years from now, sometimes the spark fades, but when you’re with someone who’s your best friend – that’s what makes a relationship last.”
Demo also discussed how she marked her 21st birthday. Due to struggles in the past which saw her enter rehab, the singer visited Africa with friends to celebrate and steered clear of alcohol.
“It’s different for me because I’m in recovery. I also want to set an example for others. You don’t have to booze it up – you can do something else,” she added.
Demi has landed the role of a guest-star in musical TV show Glee, in which she plays the love interest of Naya Rivera’s character Santana. Demi is proud to be a part of something which helps young people with their confidence.
“Yes, we kissed in the first episode, but I want people to pay less attention to the fact that I’m kissing a girl,” she explained. “Focus on the fact that having a young, multicultural lesbian couple on prime time is a huge step in our generation. It’s showing people that it’s OK to be who you are. Don’t be ashamed of it.”
