Susan Boyle, 53, wants to adopt a child.
The YouTube viral hit maker of ‘I dreamed a dream’ says she has always wanted a family of her own.
In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Mirror: “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 have been considering it for about a year now, I love children, I always have but I couldn’t have them.”
And despite the fact that she is a lot older than most first-time parents, it seems that singleton Susan has made her decision on the situation.
“I want to give a youngster what I didn’t have, and now I can do that.
“I know it is all a long process but I’ve never been more keen to do it. The rules can be quite strict but let’s hope.
“We’ll have to see what social services say but it would make me so happy.”
But the 53-year-old star hopes her fans will have faith in her decision to become a full-time mum alongside her fortunate singing career.
“I do know that I’m single and 50-odd. People don’t think I’m being serious when I say it, they have a giggle at me. Let’s see.”
