Aaron Carter wants to adopt a child because he is desperate to be a father and to find a partner to settle down.
The 30-year-old singer - who came out as bisexual earlier this year - has admitted his ultimate "goal" in life is to be a father, and he has contemplated going through the legal process to become a child's guardian because he wants a family "so bad".
Speaking to Us Weekly about his future plans, he said: "I was thinking about adopting. I want kids so bad. My goal is to be a father."
And the 'I Want Candy' hitmaker has admitted it wasn't until he hit 30 that he started thinking about parenthood.
He added: "I turned 30 and I'm like, 'Alright, my resolution is to have a kid.' But not just a kid. A beautiful woman or man, because we can have kids too. But it has to be [with] the right person."
