Kylie still hopes to have children
Australian pop star Kylie Minogue says she still dreams of having children and could one day get married, two years after recovering from breast cancer.
"A family, yeah, that's still something I would love to happen," said the 39-year-old, who earlier this year split with Frenchman Olivier Martinez after a four-year relationship.
The singer confirmed in February that she had separated from the French singer and actor, who helped her through the darkest days after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2005. Kylie, who is about to release her first album since beating cancer, was more cautious on the prospect of marriage, suggesting only that in terms of organisation she would be prepared for it.
"There have been times when we were getting ready for a big event, like the opening of my exhibition at the V and A (Victoria and Albert Museum, London), and there's a last minute hoo-has and we're all running around like headless chickens and I've said, 'Imagine if we were getting ready for my wedding'.
"We'll see. I honestly don't have a feeling one way or the other if I will walk down the aisle," she told the November edition of Glamour magazine. After the end of her relationship with Martinez, she was rumoured to be dating a music producer. She said nothing about her own current relationships, and was nonchalant about her former boyfriend. "I think he has a girlfriend, I'm not entirely sure," she said.
She was also philosophical about the toll that cancer has taken on her physically. "As far as body image goes, I've shrunk to nothing, I've ballooned... my body is not what it used to be but it's the body I'm in.
"When you are stripped of everything and you have to grown your eyelashes back, grown your hair back, it's astonishing. "It's hard to express what I've learnt from that, but a deep pyschological and emotional shift has obviously taken place," she added.
