Kylie Minogue opens up about not having kids

Kylie Minogue was 36 when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005.

And reflecting on that time 14 years later, the Australian pop icon says the disease ‘changed everything’, including her chances of falling pregnant.

"I don't want to dwell on it, obviously, but I wonder what that would have been like,” she told Sunday Times Style, referencing the fact she never had children.

"Everyone will say there are options, but I don't know. I'm 50 now, and I'm more at ease with my life.

"I can't say there are no regrets, but it would be very hard for me to move on if I classed that as a regret, so I just have to be as philosophical about it as I can."

While she sometimes wonders what it would have been like to have children, she said, ‘You’ve got to accept where you are and get on with it.”

Kylie is currently in a loving relationship with British publisher Paul Solomons, and visited Sydney earlier this year to lead Mardi Gras celebrations.

Her last high-profile relationship with Joshua Sasse ended in 2016, with Kylie almost suffering a nervous breakdown due to stress.

“It was pretty much nervous breakdown time at the end of 2016,” she told Stellar Magazine. “I don’t want to overdramatise it, but it actually was nervous breakdown time."

"It ended up being not so much about heartbreak and more about stress. It was a stressful time."
