Do your head toss and check your nails, because Lizzo has babies on the brain!
In a candid interview with The Sunday Times published over the weekend, the “Juice” singer revealed she is “open” to the idea of having children after she previously was not.
Though she had believed her future would consist of “no children, two friends,” the Grammy winner told the publication, “It’s different now.”
“Like my relationship with my family, I’m working on that. I open myself up to friendships. I open myself up to the idea of children, which is big for me, ’cause my albums are my babies,” the 31-year-old added.
On Tuesday’s live episode of “The Real,” hosts Jeannie Mai, Amanda Seales, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love and Adrienne Houghton discussed the artist’s bombshell announcement.
Houghton exclaimed that Lizzo is allowed to change her mind about having children at any point in time.
“Lizzo is saying you can change your mind tomorrow. You can change your mind three minutes from now. You can change your mind three hours from now,” the former contestant of “The Masked Singer” dished. “It’s her decision and her right and her journey and she has a right to evolve.”
Adrienne added, “There’s no blueprint to the journey.”
For Mai, Lizzo’s statement is a sign that the hitmaker is living a life filled with happiness.
“More than anything, it makes me think that she’s in a really peaceful place in her life. To actually reach that moment, and she’s 31, y’all! She’s really young and successful,” Mai noted. “So for her to actually be at the place where she’s in harmony with where her life is, to now think to provide for another one. I think she’s really happy, and I’m happy for her.”
After the ladies praised Lizzo and her interview, they then put Seales in the hot seat, and asked the “Insecure” actress if she ever wants to be a mommy.
While mentioning a time when Mowry-Housley brought up the subject after the NAACP Image Awards, Amanda responded, “Do I want kids? It’s not like a desire, or a non-desire. It’s like, if it happens, it happens.”
Seales then quipped, “I’ll tell you what. I’m tired of using condoms, so…”
