Kylie Minogue opens up about how breast cancer affected her chance to have kids

Kylie Minogue has candidly spoken about her battle with breast cancer.

The singer was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, when she was 36-years-old.

Speaking with Sunday Times Style, she said:

“I was 36 when I had my diagnosis breast cancer. Realistically, you’re getting to the late side of things.”

The singer also opened up about how the diagnosis affected her chance to have a family.

“While that wasn’t on my agenda at the time, it changed everything.”

“I don’t want to dwell on it, obviously, but I wonder what that would have been like. Everyone will say there are options, but I don’t know.”

“I’m 50 now, and I’m more at ease with my life.”

“I can’t say there are no regrets, but it would be very hard for me to move on if I classed that as a regret, so I just have to be as philosophical about it as I can. You’ve got to accept where you are and get on with it.”

And wonderfully, Kylie Minogue took the opportunity to gush over her new man, Paul Solomons.

“I’ve met someone who I feel good with. It feels rights”.

“I can feel my face going, people say ‘Your face changes when you take about him,’  and it does.”

“Happiness. He’s an inspiring, funny, talented guy. He’s got a real-life actual job! It’s lovely.”
