Leona, 30, has been in a relationship with dancer Dennis Jauch for four years, and she’s definitely thinking about having babies with him.

Speaking to OK! USA, the former X Factor winner said: “[I want kids] definitely, but right now I’m travelling too much.”

As well as having her own children, Leona wants to give a home to children less fortunate – something very close to her heart.

She continued: “I’d also like to adopt. It’s really important to me because my mum grew up in a children’s home and she was never adopted, so I’ve always wanted to.”

Leona also discussed her relationship with German Dennis and revealed how they make it work long-distance, as she splits her time between London and LA.

“He’s amazing,” she gushed. “We both travel a lot so it’s a long-distance relationship but when we’re in the same place we’ll make sure we see each other and he’ll stay with me when he’s in LA. We make a lot of effort to make it work.

“He’s so supportive. He’s such a fun person and we really balance each other out because we’re quite different. We push each other to do things we wouldn’t normally do.”
