JoJo Siwa has opened up about her dreams of becoming a mother - something that she has harbored since she was 12 years old.

Speaking on the latest episode of The Best Podcast Ever, which aired on Monday, Siwa unveiled her aspirations for the future to hosts Raven-Symoné, 37, and her spouse Miranda Pearman-Maday.

Siwa, the 20-year-old former Dance Moms star, shared her lofty ambitions, saying: "My dream, dream, dream, dream is the Super Bowl, to do the halftime performance." She added, "When I do that, then I'll retire and have babies."

The discussion took a personal turn as Siwa delved into her maternal instincts, as she said: "On the personal side of my life, since I was 12, I cannot wait to be a mom. I cannot wait to have babies. I want to have so many!"

"I can't wait!", she exclaimed. However, she acknowledged that starting a family is a big step, stating: "I feel like I'll have kids pretty early - but obviously, me having kids is a lot bigger process."

Siwa, who gained fame with hits like 'Boomerang', first came out as gay in an announcement on Instagram back in January 2021.

Reflecting on her journey, she told PEOPLE in April 2021: "I still don't know what I am. It's like, I want to figure it out... I don't know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it or queer because I think the keyword is cool."

She added: "Technically, I would say that I am pansexual because that's how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human."

During the episode of the podcast, Pearman-Maday inquired whether Siwa would prefer to carry her own children rather than opt for adoption or surrogacy. Siwa confidently replied: "I do."

When Siwa first came out, she got an unexpected call from Elton John who offered his support.

Speaking to E! News, Siwa recalled how he said: "'Hello JoJo, darling. This is Elton.' And I was like, 'Mom, get the camera out. It's Elton John.'" However, this isn't the first interaction the pair had had.

Siwa explained: "I remember the first time I ever got to meet Elton was backstage at one of his concerts and I got to talk to him for 45 minutes. I was only 15 and that conversation changed my life forever."

The star went on to explain how icons such as Elton John and Freddie Mercury gave her the confidence to come out.

"All of those people who came before me in the gay community made me feel like, 'oh, it's going to be OK.' Those people are who they are, people know them and people love them," she said.
