Alanis Morissete wants to adopt.
The 34-year-old singer says she wants to have a family before she is 40 and admits she would consider adoption.
She said: "I would definitely consider adoption, no question about it. Not today, but at some point in the future.
"Ideally, I'd like to be married and starting a family before I'm 40, even though I don't believe in the concept of marriage in the conventional sense.
"But there is definitely virtue in committing to something and following it through."
The 'Ironic' hitmaker also revealed she is dating a lawyer - but refuses to name him.
She added: "My boyfriend since last summer is a lawyer.
"I've done the high-profile relationship thing and I'm a little shy of that now.
"I don't want to say who he is yet just for his sake - the poor guy's life is going to turn around - so we want to drag it out while we are still getting to know each other."
Alanis split with fiancé Ryan Reynolds last February after two-and-a-half years together.
