British pop star Rachel Stevens is open to a reunion with her estranged father, 10 years after they fell out following a bitter public spat.

The former S Club 7 singer cut her dad Michael out of her life in 2003 after he branded her "a total a**ehole" and "selfish" following a family bust-up.

Stevens has avoided discussing the feud for years, but now admits giving birth to daughter Amelie in 2010 has made her more aware of parenting issues and she is now ready to reunite with her father.

The Some Girls hitmaker tells Britain's Daily Mail, "My dad is not in my life unfortunately but I've got to the stage where I wish him well. I'm not shutting the door to seeing him again. I'm older now and feel more compassion towards him. We all make mistakes. When you become a parent it makes you appreciate your own parents."
