The Weeknd opens up about wanting to have kids & more!

The singer opened up about his personal life, including his struggles with addiction, wanting to have kids, and his dating struggles.

While we're patiently waiting for his new record, Abel Tesfaye -aka The Weeknd- recently opened up about his personal life on a new interview! The 31-year-old singer got candid about his past struggles with drugs and alcohol, dating struggles, and wanting to have kids.

A few days ago, the singer cleaned up his Instagram account, and shared a video teaser on social media titled "The Dawn Is Coming" making a clear reference to his upcoming album. "The album is the album I've always wanted to make," he revealed during the interview.

Drugs were a crutch, it was me thinking that I needed it. And not doing the work to figure out how not to need it.

The musician also got real about how much his life changed, and the steps he's been taking to live a much healthier lifestyle! According to what he said in the interview, his current habits are "sober lite," which means having a drink or smoking a joint once in a while. His lifestyle seems similar to that of Demi Lovato (recently, they revealed they are not completely sober, but living a "California sober" lifestyle).

"I'm not a heavy drinker as much as I used to be," he explained, "The romance of drinking isn't there. Drugs were a crutch, it was me thinking that I needed it. And not doing the work to figure out how not to need it." He also admitted to be very greatful that he didn't need to go to rehab.

"I eventually want a family. I know I say I don't, but I know I do," he revealed, "I want children. I guess I say it because I like the trajectory of my career, but also I feel like having children would influence and inspire me more."

The singer also opened up about his struggles with relationships and dating saying, "I just try not to bring attention to myself. And I just love being in normal situations. It's such a great feeling." The singer publicly dated supermodel Bella Hadid from 2015 to 2016, to then have a brief but intense romance with singer Selena Gomez in 2017. However, he then went back to Bella's arms dating her until 2019.
