Paula Abdul Dishes on Love and Life

by at . Comments
Hey, Paula Abdul Recently, USA Today caught up with Paula Abdul.

The American Idol judge talked about numerous aspects of her life, including this exciting piece of news: she wants to have a child.

"That's the next step in my life," said Abdul, back in Los Angeles in between Idol auditions that have taken her to Philadelphia, Miami, San Diego, Charleston, S.C., Atlanta and Omaha. "Definitely within the next two years. I thought by now I'd have three grown children."

Forget Angelina Jolie and adopting from a foreign country, though. Paula said she'd be willing to explore fertility options.

"With modern medicine, people are having kids in their 40s and even up until their late 40s," she said. "In their 50s, they're having their second child. If it doesn't happen naturally like that, I would always consider adopting."

Of course. Abdul's life has already been enriched by her boyfriend of more than five months, J.T. Torregiani.

"He's a sweetie pie," she said, looking at him across the lobby of the Renaissance Hotel. "He's a positive force that has come into my life right now. Where it leads, who knows? Like Simon Cowell says, 'He's a great, normal guy — why does he like you?' "
