Motherhood wasn’t in Kylie Minogue’s plans when she started undergoing treatment for breast cancer in 2005—the battle that “changed everything” in her life, and may have ultimately diminished her chances of ever bearing a child.

Although the pop star does find herself wondering about what could have been once in a while, she said it was something she must simply accept.


“I was 36 when I had my diagnosis. Realistically, you’re getting to the late side of things. But while that wasn’t on my agenda at the time, [cancer] changed everything. I don’t want to dwell on it, obviously, but I wonder what that would have been like,” Kylie said in an interview with the Sunday Times’ Style magazine.

Now, at 50, the Australian singer is at peace with her situation.


“I can’t say there are no regrets, but it would be hard for me to move on if I classed that as a regret. So, I just have to be as philosophical about it as I can. You’ve got to accept where you are and get on with it,” she said.

Kylie is currently dating British GQ creative director Paul Solomons—one of her sources of “happiness.”

“People say, ‘Your face changes when you talk about him’—and it does,” she related. “He’s an inspiring, funny, talented guy. He’s got an actual real-life job! It’s lovely.” —ALLAN POLICARPIO
