SINGER Sia has admitted she regrets revealing one of her adopted teenage son's had welcomed twins.
In late June, the 44-year-old announced that she had become a grandmother- weeks after revealing she'd adopted two teenage sons last year.
And now the Chandelier singer said she has decided to "stop talking" about her role as a grandmother, explaining that it "wasn't [her] news to share".
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show today, Sia also admitted it's her "job to protect her children and not blab about what's going on in their lives".
The Titanium hitmaker shared: "I've decided to stop talking about it.
"I made a bit of a boo-boo because they're my new children. I've only had them for a year. I'm such an open book that I forget not everyone else is.
"While I didn't get into trouble for blabbing about his [her son's] children – I was peeing, which is where I have my best thoughts, and I realised that it was not my news to share with the world."
Weighing in on her decision, radio host Jackie 'O' Henderson added that Sia doesn't like to share details about her daughter Kitty, nine, either.
To which she added: "I instantly realised I can't talk about my children's private lives. I'm just learning how to be a mother."
In June, the singer revealed she adopted two 18-year-old boys last year after they were being aged out of the foster care system.
And then announced that her new family had expanded as her youngest son had become a father to twins.
Speaking on Zane Lowe's Apple Music show on, Sia said: "My youngest son just had two babies. I'm just immediately horrified.
"No, I'm cool. They call me Nana. I'm trying to get them to call me Lovey, like Kris [Jenner]. I'm like, 'Call me Lovey'."
At the time, the Australian songstress also described how her two sons could have stayed in foster care until they were 21, but she wanted to give them a stable life.
She's also helped them access trauma care for their time in the system.
The star continued: "I'm a little bit jaded now after investigating the foster system as much as I have done in the last year.
"It's failing us. Not in my experience, not in my sons' experience. They've been in 18 different locations in their 18 years."
She added: "Started out as a pretty massive roller coaster. They told me one thing, I discovered another. But I just stayed really like a kind of Al-Anon Ninja. I just kept really strong boundaries."
"I would say, 'You could do this, or you could go back to where you came from, which is not a nice life," she said.
"It's not a good life, and I'd say, 'I'm doing this because I'm your mother. I love you. I have no other agenda other than the fact that I love you. I don't want to see you in prison'."
The singer wants to provide a space for them to deal with their trauma and has put them in programs to help.
