Lana Del Rey hasn’t ruled out motherhood. In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, the 38-year-old alt-pop superstar opened up about possibly wanting to have kids someday — but not until the time is right.
“That’s why God didn’t give me children yet,” she told the publication, according to People. “Because there is more to explore. I know people who’ve tested every water. It’s burnt them, like Icarus. But I’m willing to go there.”
“I see it coming for me,” she continued. “We’ll see. We’ll see what melts the wings.”
Del Rey was reportedly in a relationship with house musician Jack Donoghue of Salem that began in early 2022. After several years with Scottish singer-songwriter Barrie-James O’Neill of Kassidy, Del Rey began dating Italian photographer Francesco Carrozzini in 2014, before a reported brief dalliance with rapper G-Eazy, followed by a year with cop Sean Larkin and an engagement to musician Clayton Johnson. Billboard reported in March that Del Rey was engaged to Range Media Partners’ Evan Winiker but it’s unclear where that relationship stands now.
The Grammy nominee also addressed her viral June Glastonbury set in the interview, a performance that was abruptly cut short by organizers after Del Rey’s blew past the midnight curfew. Videos from the night captured the musician — who was about 30 minutes late to the gig — attempting to stay onstage and sing a cappella with the crowd before security escorted her away.
“I didn’t feel great about it,” confessed the “Summertime Sadness” singer. “I was a little confused because I don’t think I was ever in a position where somebody said, ‘If you do not finish by this time, everything will go out.’ I was only 15 minutes late.”
“I’ve heard of curfews before,” she added. “But I didn’t know they actually turned the lights off!”
Del Rey’s latest interview comes shortly after the artist was nominated for five Grammy Awards, picking up nods for album of the year and best alternative album with Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd; song of the year and best alternative music performance for “A&W”; and best pop duo/group performance for “Candy Necklace” feat. Jon Batiste.
“It’s just such a fun day,” she reacted to the Grammy news in an Instagram video last month. “It’s really just about how excited everybody else is, and everybody calling, getting in touch and saying hi. All about the process and just one more exciting thing that’s happening… I in fact only learned this year that you have to submit your own album if you want to be nominated. Even that was out of my wheelhouse, but I did do that.”
