‘If Matty had a steady girlfriend, I do like to ask if she would be somebody that would want to have a family’, she explained on the show on Wednesday.
She added: ‘Because I watch a lot of rubbish reality television but one of the [similarities] is the amount of people on these shows (like 90 Day Fiancé and all of these things that i love to watch) is that they get married without really securing the conversation of having children. And it’s fundamental’.
Most recently, the singer was said to be secretly dating a Canadian model and influencer, according to a new report last month.
