Nelly Furtado - Nelly Furtado wants kids before new album

Nelly Furtado wants to have more kids before her next album.

The 'Maneater' hitmaker - who has an eight-year-old daughter Nevis, whose dad is her ex-partner DJ Jasper Gahunia - is keen to have a baby with husband Demacio Castellon and she is delighted that her daughter has two father figures in her life.

When asked if she'd like kids with Demacio in the future, she replied: ''Maybe before the next album. Whenever I'm committed to something, be it a relationship or a sport where I'm part of a team, I find from that commitment you get great freedom.

''I think I've experienced exactly that in my family life and in my marriage. Being committed to something has allowed me to spread my wings. You have an anchor, so the rest of your spirit can soar.''

Nelly, 33, admits she is loving motherhood ''more than ever'' and she fully expects Nevis to follow in her footsteps and become a singer/songwriter when she grows up because the youngster is ''really musical''.

The pop star - who released LP 'The Spirit Indestructible' this month - added to Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''Mothering is a passion for me and so is music. Those two things go hand in hand. I'm enjoying motherhood more than ever. It gets better every year and that comes from experience.

''Nevis can share the experience of what I do, as she is really musical. She's a natural songwriter; she plays the violin and piano.

''She travels with me, but usually she goes to school and has a normal existence. I'm not sure yet if I have to educate her in a different way, perhaps home schooling. We are taking it day by day. Travelling is part of her DNA, so she's very familiar with the tour bus.''
