The musician also opened up about what adopting two children taught her about the foster care system.

"My youngest son just had two babies.I'm a f-king grandma!" she said. "I know, right?.I'm just immediately horrified.No, I'm cool".

The podcast was the first time Sia went into detail about her sons, who are both black men she adopted past year as they were ageing out of the foster care system. "I love them very much", she shared.

While she's happy to have the new little ones, Sia said there's one thing she wishes were different. "They're really doing a lot of educational stuff that's good for them", she said. With your history and the colour of your skin, I don't want to see you as that five per cent that ends up in prison for life. I love you. I don't want to see you in prison.

Sia is building one happy family!

When Zane had asked for Sia's perspective on police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States, she teared up as one of her sons fetched her a tissue box.

However, she did not disclose she had adopted two sons until four months later. "I love him so much", she said, sharing that her youngest son is still now in treatment to process past trauma.

During her interview with Lowe, Sia spoke about her sons' experience growing up in foster care before she adopted them. "So, I'm just trying to do my best for them".

"I actually adopted two sons a year ago".

"When this reality is happening, and its what we should be addressing more than anything else.we can actually act, and we can actually try and get justice for Breonna Taylor, and Elijah McClain, just that there's actually, we can have an effect", she said. "I'd like to adopt you we're just trying to find you and get my house check done etc", she tweeted.

Sia had first mentioned being an adoptive mother in January, when she told GQ she had "just adopted a son".

Before becoming a mother, Sia was a mother figure to her protégé Maddie Ziegler.
