Whigfield’s baby died days after birth
Whigfield’s daughter tragically died three days after birth.
The “Saturday Night” singer has ruled out having any more children following the sad loss of her daughter, who she gave birth to prematurely 22 years ago, and doesn’t regret her decision.
She said: “I had a daughter in 2000 but unfortunately I gave birth in the seventh month and she didn’t survive – she only survived three days.
“So after that, I didn’t want to have kids anymore. I’m 52, so having children is a bit difficult. No, I wouldn’t adopt or have IVF – I just started having animals after that.
“I started having dogs and now I’m happy that I don’t have kids because I see my niece and she has so much work.”
The 52-year-old star is engaged to partner Finn but admitted getting married isn’t a priority for them.
She told MailOnline: ‘I live with my partner, Finn. He’s a producer and we work together, and he’s a music publisher.
“I have known him for many years – he produced famous Italian music. He was a producer on a big star in Italy.
“He proposed to me at Christmas, but it’s not a priority to get married because we’re good together, and I don’t have time to get married.
“I am always very busy and for that you have to take time. I prefer to write music and tour and stuff.
Whigfield – whose real name is Sannie Charlotte Carlson – gave up alcohol seven years ago because it was starting to feel “bad” for her body.
She said: “I quit drinking because drinking was basically part of life on tour, because of boredom and because there was so much waiting.
“I wasn’t the kind of person who would wake up and drink, don’t get me wrong, but it was just like a social thing and to do with my job. Backstage, there was booze everywhere. It just felt like it became a part of my life, and one day I just said “Ugh” – I had had enough because waking up feeling like shit is not good.
“I could just feel in my body and my brain that everything was wrong. It was just, you know, when something takes over.
