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.” 

Speaking to Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O radio show last month, the notoriously private singer said: ‘They had extremely traumatic lives and I had the resources to adopt these two boys.’ 

‘These boys both had lived in about 18 homes each in their 18 years and never had any stability. 

‘They had extremely traumatic lives and I had the resources to adopt them and give them the resources to deal with their trauma and any therapy for their problems and the difficulty they’ve faced,’ she added.     

Sia said being ‘newly rich’ was ‘really weird and fun’ and had given her opportunities, such as the recent adoptions, to help others.

‘It means I can make a lot of peoples’ dreams come true, which is the best feeling ever, especially now I don’t drink or do drugs, so that’s the new high,’ she said.

The blonde star is currently isolating with her new family in Los Angeles. 

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”.’

‘Cause there were two dates going on, so I think obviously that Connagh G, he was doing a date at the same time. 

‘So with the way the cameras and the recording is, they would shoot sort of like one date whilst you had to sort of sit in silence because obviously they could only capture one date.

‘So like my first meeting with Paige, we just sort of sat in silence. Staring at each other. Like we were just sat there and I was like trying to like graft Paige, but I couldn’t. I was just stood there. I was sat there. I was just like in silence.

She has been with French artist Leyman Lahcine for seven years.

But Paloma Faith has revealed she often fantasises about having an open relationship with him.

The singer, 38, who gave birth to her first child in 2016 with her long-term boyfriend, said she would be eager to have a polyamorous arrangement.

She told The Sun: ‘I’ve never tried but I’ve always fantasised about it and I think that if I could have an open relationship where only I was allowed, it would be perfect.’

The kooky songstress also revealed that she once performed a sex act on the street in Spain.

She admitted: ‘I was 22. It wasn’t full-on but it was… well, basically I was naked in the street doing this in Spain.

‘It was like full-on foreplay but I was definitely naked in the street in Spain and I remember this moment when this old lady walked past on a zimmer frame. I thought it was quite hot.’

The St Trinian’s actress was previously married to New Zealand chef Rian Haynes from 2005 but they got divorced four years later. 

It comes after Paloma revealed that her three-year-old child is a girl – although she is raising her gender neutral. 

The musician referred to her child with female pronouns throughout as she spoke candidly to author Giovanna Fletcher, 35, on the new series of her Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast this week.

In the poignant chat, Paloma reflected on falling pregnant by accident in her youth, compared with her struggle to conceive now that she is in her late 30s.  

Paloma said: ‘In the past I’d been very fertile and I’d had moments when I was too young to have a baby where I’d chosen not to have it.

‘And I felt very fertile. And when I met my partner I felt very different with him than I felt with most people.’

Paloma went on to welcome her daughter – whose name she has not disclosed – in December 2016, and has since tried to have more children with artist Leyman, 33.  

She said: ‘Last year I was trying again and it was strange because once my daughter turned 18 months I suddenly was like, I want another one.

‘This is the best. Then I had a miscarriage and it’s sort of an ongoing thing. It’s tense. It’s not very sexy. 

‘I have a scar that isn’t healing properly from my caesarian so it’s creating a bit of a toxic atmosphere which is also quite hard.’

Paloma also admitted she felt ‘depleted and depressed’ while at home with her daughter but became invigorated when she began working again. 

Speaking about life as a working mum, the singer and actress said: ‘I have so much respect for the women who stay at home, I just don’t know how they do it. Because, it’s harder. It’s harder than going to work.’

On the importance of having space away from your child, Paloma said: ‘I think it took a year before I felt like my baby and I could be two people. I felt like I gave myself away for a year and I didn’t enjoy giving myself away.’
