‘They were ageing out of the foster care system’: Sia first announced she had adopted her two sons, aged 19, during a video interview with SiriusXM in late May
Sia first announced she had adopted her two sons during a video interview with SiriusXM in late May.
The singer, who almost always covers her face in public to maintain her anonymity, smiled as she expressed her love for her new family.
‘I adopted two sons last year. They were 18, they’re both 19-years-old now. They were ageing out of the foster care system and yeah, I love them,’ she explained.
The Adelaide-born singer did not reveal their names nor discuss them further.
During her chat with Zane Lowe, she explained that both her adopted sons – who are Black – have made her more aware of the racial injustice in the United States.
She admitted she was ‘very scared’ for her children, and had to show tough love to the teenagers when they weren’t being transparent with her.
‘I’d say: “I’m doing this because I’m your mother. I love you.”‘
Sia also recalled one emotional conversation she had, saying: ‘I don’t want to see you in prison… With your history and the color of your skin, I don’t want to see you as that five percent that ends up in prison for life. I don’t want that for you.”
Sia first hinted she’d become an adoptive-mother in January, making a casual reference to GQ as she opened up about her relationship status and sex life.
Speaking of DJ and producer Diplo, Sia said: ‘I wrote him a text, and I said, “Hey, listen, you’re like one of five people that I’m sexually attracted to, and now that I’ve decided to be single for the rest of my life and I just adopted a son, I don’t have time for a relationship… If you’re interested in some no-strings sex, then hit me up”.’
