George Michael admits he wouldn’t want to be a dad because he feels he’s “too embarrassing”.
However the singer admires those like Sir Elton John for having a baby with husband David Furnish via a surrogate.
“I’ve got godchildren,” he said. “Thank god I didn’t have children — can you imagine being George Michael’s son or daughter. I don’t think having Elton as your dad would be as embarrassing as having George Michael as your father.
“It’s a resolute no, I’m 47. I congratulate Elton, I’m very happy for him but it’s not something in my future.”
While George — who has revealed his drug use increased because he was struggling to cope with a bereavement — doesn’t want children, he believes having a family would have made his grief easier to cope with.
“I hope to god the people around me will stay healthy and well, my biggest fear since my late 20s has been more grief — I always knew I was going to be one of those people who didn’t deal with that at all well. I think if you have children maybe you deal with grief better, you understand the cycle better,” he said.
