Jordin Sparks feels pressured into having children
The `No Air` hitmaker is very happy with her boyfriend, R&B singer Jason Derulo - who she has been dating since August 2011- but admits his mother`s constant hints for them to have a baby are starting to bug her.
Jordin told HollyScoop at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on 27.01.13: "His mom was like `You know, I`m gonna be 60 soon. I`m not gonna be able to chase around kids` and I was like `whoa`."
The 23-year-old star definitely wants to have "a couple" of kids, but maintains she has plenty of time for children in the future and intends to have a ring on her finger first.
She said: "When it happens it`ll happen. I definitely want to be married first and be with somebody I know I`m gonna be with forever. But I love kids. I would love to have a couple of my own one day."
The former `American Idol` winner and Jason, 23, have to compromise to make their long distance relationship work and she credits communication and understanding as the biggest reasons their love has survived.
Jordin explained: "Well we have a long distance relationship so we really have to make the time we have together count ... Communication is really key like, `I really didn`t like it when you said that,` or, `Maybe we can try this and go to this movie at the same time?` I would definitely say compromise and communication for sure."
