At 23, Selena Gomez has accomplished a lot with her music and acting career. Now, allegedly, the songstress wants more in life than records and red carpets – she wants to be a mother.

Willing to trade the glitz and glam lifestyle for the simple joy of being a parent, sources say she doesn’t mind not having a guy in her life; she would be happy being a single mom.

“Selena knows with her celebrity and past relationships that it will be hard to lock down a man. There is just too much that goes with it. The paparazzi, the constant travel and distance with careers and everything in between that causes a struggle. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to become a mother. She wants that experience.” a source told Hollywood Life.

The source added: “Regardless of how her future relationships go, she will be a mother. She would love that experience more than anything.”

The former Disney Channel star knows first-hand how hard it can be as a single parent, with her background; her mother was a teenager when she raised her alone. The Hands to Myself singer previously said: “Having me at 16 had to have been a big responsibility. My mom gave up everything for me and had, like, three jobs. She supported me, sacrificed her life for me.”
