Sia Confirms Adoption Of Two Sons From ‘Aging Out’ Of Foster Care
Sia confirmed that she adopted two teenage boys who were aging out of foster care on May 19.
“I actually adopted two sons last year,” she told SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up. “They were both 18 — they’re both 19 years old now. They were aging out of the foster care system. Yeah, and I love them.”
She revealed what life has been like for the family in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic. “They are both finding it pretty difficult, one more so than the other,” she said. “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.”
Sia discussed becoming a parent with GQ and revealed that she is not currently looking for a serious relationship. When her good friend Diplo was brought up that she had even asked him to partake in a “no strings” attached sexual relationship.
She said, “this year I wrote [Diplo] a text, and I said, ‘Hey, listen, you’re like one of five people that I’m sexually attracted to, and now that I’ve decided to be single for the rest of my life and I just adopted a son, I don’t have time for a relationship… If you’re interested in some no-strings sex, then hit me up.’”
Sia had previously hinted at her adopting children when she sent a message to a teenage boy featured in the HBO documentary Foster named Dasani.
Her tweet read, “Hey Dasani from ‘FOSTER’ on HBO! I’d like to adopt you,” Sia wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “We’re just trying to find you and get my house check done etc. But I want you to know you will have a home with me.”
Sia had announced her separation from her husband of two years, filmmaker Erik Anders Lang, in 2014.
She told People, “After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple. We are, however, dedicated to remaining friends. There will be no further comment.”
Sia recently started showing her face in public after years of concealing her face.
