Model and actor Cara Delevingne has revealed she is 'manifesting' a baby which she hopes to have in the coming years.
The Carnival Row star spoke about her hopes for the future ahead of her 30th birthday this August; an age for which she is 'so excited'.
After having risen to fame throughout her teens and early twenties while modelling for top-name designers including Burberry, Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana, she is now preparing to take on a new decade in her life as she described getting older as 'so nice'.
In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar UK, Delevingne stressed that she is looking forward to her next big birthday, but admitted that if you were to call her on the day and see how she's doing, she would 'probably cry'.
It's a reaction many people might be able to relate to, though Delevingne has big plans for her 30s as she told the publication she wants 'to have babies'.
The 29-year-old isn't ready for children just yet, she said, but that hasn't stopped her shopping for her planned future offspring.
She explained: 'I buy children’s clothes for my future child who doesn’t exist. Baby shoes really get me – they break my heart. I went shopping the other day and I bought these tiny Air Jordans, which are purple and they have a lion on them.'
Where some people make five year plans and others make to-do lists, Delevingne suggested her shopping habits were her way of helping bring the child to life as she added: 'I’m manifesting...'
The actor, who is pansexual, is currently single after breaking up with her previous girlfriend, Ashley Benson, in 2020, but she doesn't appear to be in any rush to find a partner as she said it is 'nice to be single'.
She noted that she 'hadn’t spent time to really work' on herself because she had been in 'back-to-back relationships for a while', and said she now values her privacy 'so much' as it prevents people from inserting their own 'ideas and comments' into her relationships.
When she is not dating or shopping for her future children, the star described spending time writing stories and music, doing yoga and meditation, and being an activist for the LGBTQ+ community. She is currently working on a documentary with the BBC exploring sexuality, identity and gender across the globe, having noted that she believes she would have 'hated [herself] less' while growing up if she'd had more LGBTQ+ role models.
