SUSAN Boyle wants a baby.
The 55-year-old singer admitted she would love to adopt a child but is worried that her beloved cat might get jealous.
She told the Sunday Mirror: "I would love to adopt a child but my cat might get jealous. I don't want to see a cat and a baby fighting. It's something I might do later."
Susan - who recently lost over two stone - also revealed that she is still in touch with the mystery doctor she met while touring America, even though their romantic relationship is not serious.
She said: "I don't want to reveal the doctor's name. It's nothing serious at the moment. I will send him a picture of my weight loss - if he's a good boy! I do enjoy male companionship."
The star has a new album, 'A Wonderful World', but has not performed live in some time and is unsure when she will take to the stage again.
She said: "I haven't performed live because I've been ill. The short answer is that it has been connected to my Asperger's syndrome.
"When you sing, you put on a persona. I hide behind that person on stage. You can feel like death, but you have to put it on. The audience wants to see someone smiley.
"There are no firm dates for another tour. I'm taking baby steps. I've decided to record and see how it does first.
"Do a little at a time. Record, see how it does. Then build it up from there. When you have been ill, it's a bit like a house. You rebuild the floor first."
