X Factor 2011: Samantha Brookes (Sami Brookes) is trying for baby with lesbian lover
Sami Brookes has admitted that as well as aspiring to become a huge music star, she also dreams of one day becoming a mum.
The 31 year old singer, from North Wales was featured on last night’s episode of The X factor, stunning the judges with her non stop talking and impressing them with her smooth rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘One Moment In Time’.
After her audition, Gary Barlow raved:
“Samantha, that audition was absolutely amazing!”
However, as well as succeeding on the ITV show, Samantha also admitted that she is desperate to start her own family but because she can’t naturally conceive a child of her own, the process will be more difficult for her. The bubbly singer told The Daily Star:
“I’ve been told that I can’t have children.
“But I want to adopt, because I want children more than anything.
“I don’t really have any contact with my mum so when I have children I want to be really close to them. I want to be the perfect mother. “
Samantha thinks she and her girlfriend would be great parents and could offer a very loving home to a baby. She added:
“I’ve been with my girlfriend for a year.
“She’s my rock, she takes everything in her stride, she’s amazing but I want to keep her private.”
Samantha was seen last night winning four yeses from the judges and a place in bootcamp. Find out if she made it any further by checking out our list of some of the acts that have made judges houses here.
