Mika wants a baby.
The 33-year-old singer – who lives in London with his partner of 10 years Andreas Dermanis – and revealed he would love to have children and would consider adopting.
Mika is currently hosting a new TV show ‘Stasera Casa Mika’ on Italian TV channel Rai 2 and when he was asked by his guest Antonella Clerici if he would like to have children, the star replied: "You know if you do this job you have to be a little selfish."
However, Antonella replied by asking: "Ok, but where’s your mum now?"
And Mika said: "She’s here, in the backstage. It’s true, you are right, I get it. Yes I would like to have a baby. But how to have a baby… for me it’s a little bit more complicated. Maybe I could adopt, or there are many other ways to have a baby nowadays. And the only thing that counts is love in the end. If a baby is loved, he has everything he needs."
The revelation that he is getting broody comes as a surprise, as just recently Mika insisted he was too selfish to think about having children right now.
He said: "No, my life is too selfish. Being on tour for 15 months is a huge emotional investment. You have to be around tolerant people … With a child this would not be possible."
And Mika also admitted that his entourage, including a gardener, a cleaner and his personal chef, frustrate Andreas when he’s trying to relax.
He explained: "I can say my home is full of books. There’s a lot of art, and there are my two dogs. There’s a gardener, a person who takes care of the home and a cook because eating is fantastic! And then there’s my partner who is always surrounded by people he doesn’t know. That makes him go crazy!"
