British singer Sinitta says that she didn’t sign up to be a single mom when she and her soon-to-be divorced husband decided to adopt their children in 2008.
“I did panic when I realized I’d be raising them on my own,” she reveals to Now magazine. “I’d only just got my head around being a mother and suddenly I had all the responsibility.”
She adds, “My mum brought me up alone, so I now understand what she went through. It’s the hardest job in the world.”
Sinitta is ,however, coping with having to raise her children Magdalena, 4, and Zac, 2.
“I’ve had my babies for more than two years and my life’s totally changed. The first year was the toughest. Although I can look back and think: ‘OK, we’re coping’, it’s still hard. But I love them and can’t imagine life without them.”
“It’s not something I’d recommend, but you make it work because you have to.”
Sinitta is now in the process of divorcing her husband, financier Andy Willner.
