Sia became a mom and a grandmother in the span of a year!

In May, the 44-year-old singer revealed that she had adopted two males last year when they were 18 years old and "aging out of the foster care system."

On Zane Lowe's Apple Music show this week, Sia shared that she's now a "f---ing grandma!"

"My youngest son just had two babies," she announced. "I'm just immediately horrified. No, I'm cool. They call me 'Nana.' I'm trying to get them to call me 'Lovey,' like Kris [Jenner]. I'm like, 'Call me Lovey.'"

The Australian pop star also disclosed why she decided to adopt her two sons and what a joy it has been to have them in her family.

  Sia gushes about being 'in heaven' as a new mother after adopting two boys who were aging out of foster care: 'It's a blessing for me' Sia gushed about being 'in heaven' as a new mother after adopting two boys who were aging out of foster care: 'It's a blessing for me,' she said in GMA interview.And now, one year on from realizing her newfound motherhood, singer Sia gushed about the progress she and her sons have made during an appearance on Good Morning America on Friday.

Sia has confirmed she is mother to two teenage sons after adopting last year . The 44- year - old Australian singer - famous for performing with her face hidden - hinted earlier this "They were 18 , they're both 19- years - old now. They were ageing out of the foster care system and yeah, I love them."

Sia first confirmed that she welcomed two sons into her family last year during a May interview with SiriusXM's The Morning Mash Up, sharing that she adopted the teenage boys when they were leaving foster care due to their age. They were both 18 — they're both 19 years old now," she revealed.

"They were aging out of the care system. They have until they're 21, but they were both 18 when I adopted them. I'm a little bit jaded now after investigating the foster system as much as I have done in the last year," she told Zane. "It's failing us. Not in my experience, in my sons' experience. They've been in 18 different locations in their 18 years. Started out as a pretty massive roller coaster. They told me one thing, I discovered another. But I just stayed really like a kind of Al-Anon Ninja. I just kept really strong boundaries."

Sia also talked about what it's been like to parent two guys who are basically grown. "I would say, 'You could do this, or you could go back to where you came from,' which is not a nice life," she explained. "It's not a good life, and I'd say, 'I'm doing this because I'm your mother. I love you. I have no other agenda other than the fact that I love you. I don't want to see you in prison. I don't want to see you as that five percent that's in prison.'"

Sia shared that both her children are in "trauma programs" and one "recently came out."

"He's just blossoming and is the light of my life. I love him so much," she said of her son. 

As for her youngest, Sia confided that he's still "processing" the trauma he's been through but she has high hopes for him. 

"I really pray that he can manage, because it took me until I was 41, I think, to deal with my early developmental trauma. And I don't want that for them, but you can't force anyone," she said. "Trauma has to come out when you're in a safe environment, when you're ready, psychologically ready. So, I'm just trying to do my best for them."

Sia got emotional talking about how her sons have opened her eyes to her own white privilege. 

"I'm embarrassed. I'm embarrassed that it took me to adopt two Black sons to really understand what they go through on a daily basis," she admitted. "There are things to do. We can actually act, and we can actually try and get justice for Breonna Taylor, and Elijah McClain, just that there's actually, we can have an effect. We don't have to just feel sad and guilt."
