Will Young would consider using a surrogate mother to have a baby.

The openly gay singer has been thinking about when he will start a family and is open to all the options available to him.

Will, 32, told the Daily Star newspaper: "I'd love to have kids one day ... probably in my 40s. I think it's great now because people are more accepting about different concepts of what a family is. As long as you love the child, or children, that's the main thing. You've got to love them, want them and be a responsible parent. Would I ever consider surrogacy? Who knows? It's something to think about and would be a very important decision."

Will - who has just released his new single 'Jealousy' - has been inspired to become a parent by the work he already does with young people in the UK.

He added: "The idea of being a father really appeals to me. I do a lot of work with young people and one day I'd like to be giving something to my own children."
