Katy Perry has revealed that she still wants to be a mother.
The Firework singer, whose divorce from Russell Brand is set to be made official in July, admitted that motherhood is still on her mind in her new 3D documentary film, Katy Perry: Part Of Me.
"I want to be a mother, but now's not the right time. A baby can't have a baby, and I'm still a baby," she said in the movie.
Katy admitted that she's a romantic at heart, and that she tried her hardest to keep the marriage going despite being in the middle of a year-long tour.
"Being in love is the dream, but the reality of making it work is not like the movies," she said.
"I have that same belief system with everything. And I did everything it took, but it still failed."
The 27-year-old added: "I thought when I find that person that's going to be my life partner, they will be accepting of who I am and supportive of what I do... and I won't ever have to choose [between them and my career]. They won't be threatened or have weird motives. Then I started to realise, that's not true."
Katy - who is rumoured to be dating Florence And The Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd - is still optimistic about finding happiness again, saying: "I am a romantic and I still believe in that fairytale. I've got a second chance at a brilliant life."
Katy is set to attend the European premiere of her movie in London on July 3.
