Sia Describes Parenthood as ‘Painful and Rewarding’ After Adopting Two Teenage Sons: ‘It’s Hard’ [VIDEO]

Sia is speaking candidly about the ups and downs of parenthood.

While chatting virtually with the Australian television program The Project on Sunday, the 45-year-old singer spoke openly about being a parent and the triumphs and challenges that come with it after she adopted two teenage boys in 2019.

Detailing to host Lisa Wilkinson that “one’s doing better than the other,” the “Chandelier” singer noted, “It’s hard. It’s been both painful and rewarding and all I can say really is that I just have to just keep reminding them that I’ll be here, I’m never going anywhere, and I love them.”

“I think it’s just scary to have someone say ‘I’ll love you forever’ when you’ve been in 28 different homes your entire life,” Sia added.

Sia previously confirmed that she welcomed two sons into her family during an interview with SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up in 2020, where she shared that she adopted the teenage boys when they were leaving foster care due to their age.

“I actually adopted two sons last year. They were both 18 — they’re both 19 years old now,” she revealed in May. “They were aging out of the foster care system. Yeah, and I love them.”
