The singer wants another baby. But she is worried that at 48, she doesn’t have the energy to keep up with another kid.
Singer and mother of two, Sheryl Crow, can’t wait to have another baby! She’s just concerned that at 48 years of age, she doesn’t have the energy that it takes to raise a third child. “I’m not sure my energy levels would manage it,” Sheryl tells the UK’s The Guardian. “In Nashville [where she lives], singers with kids only play live on Saturdays and Sundays. They call themselves the weekend warriors. I think I might do the same thing myself soon enough.”
The single mom, who adopted her first two sons — Wyatt Steven Crow, 3, and Levi James Crow, 5 months — says it doesn’t matter how she has her third child, she’s considering adopting again as well as carrying the baby herself. “I would have loved to have gone through the whole experience [of pregnancy] myself,” Sheryl shares. “It’s not impossible that that couldn’t happen still.” We would love to see Sheryl with a big baby bump!
Adoption was the right process for Sheryl the first two times. “I didn’t feel like I needed to bring another kid into the world, just to satisfy my own needs to become a mom, when there were already so many kids in the world that needed one,” says Sheryl. “My philosophy was that souls find each other; you don’t end up with the wrong child.”
But Sheryl did have one stipulation — she wanted a closed adoption. “It would be extremely hard for a mother to watch the child she gave away grow up in the magazines,” she says. Do you think she did the right thing, HollyMoms?
Sheryl also opted to adopt her babies from the United States. “If you adopt from Guatemala, Russia, Haiti, or China, you have to live there for a while,” she says. “The process can be lengthy.”
Now, Sheryl is busy focusing on being a mom and balancing her singing schedule. “It’s parks, aquariums, museums in the morning,” she says of her family’s tour schedule. “Then lunch, a nap for them, soundcheck for me, dinner all together, and then I tuck them into their bunks before going on stage. As soon as the show is over, I’m back on the bus, and to sleep – hopefully.” Sounds like she’s found a schedule that works well for her and the kids and her career.
