Single singer Anastacia is considering adopting a child.

The star split from husband Wayne Newton earlier this year after three years of marriage.

During their union she played stepmom to his kids – and now she’s got her eye on a child of her own.

But the singer is open to the idea of adoption, after seeing how Sandra Bullock took in baby Louis in January and is now caring for him as a single mom following her split from Jesse James.

Anastacia says, “Having children has been a hope for me since I was very young. For a period of time (when I was married) I was saying no, but I’d have to be 60 to give up hope.

“I would adopt like Sandra Bullock. There doesn’t have to be a father, a mother, two dogs and 2.5 children to be a perfect family.”
