SZA is sharing her hopes of one day starting a family.

While appearing on the SHE MD podcast, the "Kill Bill" singer, 34, revealed to hosts Dr. Thais Aliabadi and Mary Alice Haney that she approached the topic of fostering and co-parenting with her best friend.

"Well, I asked my best friend if she would do it with me. She said, no," SZA shared.

"Because we have too much on our plate. But I'm going to try to sweeten her up. She's my bestie, but she's also the smartest person, so it's like even if we didn't end up raising a child together like through a management lens, I'm going to force her to co-parent with me as my fake co-parent."

SZA was previously in a relationship with her former fiancé for 11 years. She doesn't often comment on her past relationship, but has shared a few bits along the way about him.

In December, SZA did an interview with Zane Lowe where she shared that she got into music because of her ex-fiancé, who was eight years older than her and helped her financially.

“[I] really only did music to prove a point,” she said. “When I started making music, it was to my ex-fiancé, because he was paying for everything. My food, my clothes, where I lived—and he was eight years my senior, so I was so codependent.”

SZA took home the award for best R&B song at the 2024 Grammy Awards in February for her song "Snooze." As she made her way through her acceptance speech, it was clear that the musician was surprised by her win.

"It's the culmination of everything. Of the moments leading up to that, even Lizzo and not realizing what was happening and being lost. Then I saw her and I was like, 'Oh.' I was realizing what was happening," SZA told PEOPLE exclusively of the onstage moment.

"I was just very shocked and very confused and just trying to not miss my award," she added.
