The 34-year-old made the decision to have her tubes tied following difficult pregnancies with her two children.

“Nausea is for weak people. It was, like, hospitalisation. It’s, like, bad. I had the worst pregnancies ever. I would end up in the hospital, dehydrated. People had to come to our house and I’d be on fluids,” said the ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ hitmaker.

“Apparently that’s what it takes to make amazing babies, because they’re both stellar. We’ve made them and it’s done.”

When quizzed about how she manages to juggle raising a family and her singing career, the supermum reveals she’s still trying to figure it out.

“We’re still working on [the balance]. It’s pretty hard, being a working mom – I’m not gonna lie – but it’s worth it for not only my little girls, but our boys to see women working and still being able to do that and accomplish being a great mom, which I feel like I’m doing. I think it’s worth it definitely.”
