"I did. I actually adopted two sons last year. They were both 18 - they're both 19 years old now. They were ageing out of the foster care system. Yeah, and I love them,” she said. 

The 44-year-old, who is known to cover her face with a blonde oversized wig when she performs, said her sons are finding lockdown difficult. 

"They are both finding it pretty difficult, one moreso than the other. But they're both doing things that are really good for them right now, that are really helpful. They're really doing a lot of educational stuff that's good for them."

The Adelaide-born star mentioned adopting her first child in January this year during an interview with GQ magazine, where she spoke about texting Diplo about "no-strings sex".

"Much of our relationship is just being spent trying not to have sex so that we wouldn't ruin our business relationship because he's super-duper hot, “ she told GQ.
