George Michael would never have children
The `True Faith` singer - who served four weeks of an eight-week jail term for driving under the influence of drugs last year and was previously arrested for exposing himself to an undercover police officer - "admires" Sir Elton John for having a baby with his husband David Furnish via a surrogate but doesn`t think parenthood is for him.
He said: "I`ve got godchildren. 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.
In an interview with UK station BBC Radio 2, he said: "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."
