Demi Lovato has opened up about the "beautiful" moment when she came out to her parents, telling them that she could see herself "ending up possibly with a woman".

The 27-year-old disclosed that she didn't "officially" come out to her parents "until 2017".
"It was actually, like emotional, but really beautiful," Lovato continued. "After everything was done I was like shaking and crying and I just felt overwhelmed."
She then said that her "incredible parents" were "so supportive" regarding her sexuality;
"My dad was like, ‘yeah, obviously,'” she said. “And I was like, ‘oh, okay dad.' My mom was the one that I was like super nervous about, but she was just like, ‘I just want you to be happy,'” Lovato shared. “That was so beautiful and amazing, and like I said, I’m so grateful."
"I don’t know what my future looks like," the singer continued. "I don’t know if I’m going to have kids this year or in 10 years. I don’t know if I’m going to do it with a partner or without."
Lovato echoed these sentiments in another interview on New Music Daily for Apple Music's Beats 1 earlier this month. "When I think of my future for the decade, I think at some point in this decade I want to start a family. That would be dope," she told Zane Lowe.
"When I think about what makes me happy today, I think about my family. I think about my friends. I think about my team," she added;
"I don’t even know if I see it with a man or a woman, but like I just know that at some point I would love to do that this decade,” she said. “If it doesn’t happen this decade, maybe the next, I don’t know. We’ll see. But I would love to start doing more things that make me happy and worry less about success."
