Sophie B. Hawkins is Pregnant At Age 50!
Sophie B. Hawkins isn’t letting her age stop her from being a mom again.
The 50-year-old singer is pregnant with a girl after being implanted with her own frozen embryo .
“I found Dashiell really needs a sibling,” Hawkins tells PEOPLE of her decision to have another child. “My son has one parent who’s 50. I want him to have a family of young people too!”
“For me, the main decision was emotional,” she says. “I’ve been wanting to have a child since Dashiell was 1, but I was working too much and there was a lot going on in my relationship.”
The singer, who identifies as omnisexual, says she is ready to raise a baby alone.
“I interviewed a lot of divorced women and they said, ‘It’s so much easier to do it alone. You don’t have the pressure or the criticism or judgment of someone else.’ Of course then you ask, ‘Will I miss the emotional support?’ Well, to tell you the truth, I’m getting that more from my friends than I ever got in a relationship.”
Hawkins had a rough first trimester, but she is back to herself now.
“I’m in the glorious second trimester so I forget I’m pregnant, and it’s really nice,” she says. “I still exercise the same, work the same, do everything the same.”
