However, the singer has confessed that there's another reason for her break from pop - she wants to make babies with her boyfriend Sam Cooper. "I'd like to have a child within a year. It'll be a minimum of four or five years before I make a record again. I know what commitment it takes to release an album. I don't think that mixes well with the idea of settling down and having children, which is ultimately my goal and more of a priority than flying around the world," the Daily Star quoted her as telling the News of the World.
"I'd want to be really hands-on for the first two or three years of having a little one. I don't want to leave them," she added.
