    Sophie B. Hawkins, 50, expecting second child: 'I finally decided to put the embryo inside of me'
    The singer, who gave birth to her son Dashiell in 2008 is now looking forward to welcoming her first daughter. 'Being 50 is actually an amazing age to have a second child because I am more wise, calm, humorous, appreciative, simple and clear.'

    [​IMG] Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images for Ms. Foundation For Women Singer Sophie B. Hawkins is expecting her second child, a baby girl, at 50 years old.
    At 50, Sophie B. Hawkins is pregnant with her second child after freezing 15 embryos when she was 31.

    “Dashiell and I have had the magical twosome for six adventurous years,” she told Us Weekly of her son, who she gave birth to in November 2008. “That intense focus of an only child and single mother, and we’re ready to invite a new and unknown dynamic into our lives.”

    Still, the “As I Lay Me Down” singer — who split from her longtime partner and manager, Gigi Gatson, in August 2014 after a six-year relationship and got physical custody of their son — admitted the idea of her having another child using donor sperm and her own frozen embryo wasn’t initially an easy decision.

    “For me, the main decision was emotional,” she told People. “I’ve been wanting to have a child since Dashiell was 1, but I was working too much and there was a lot going on in my relationship.”

    There was also the undeniable bond she’d created with her son that Hawkins wanted to preserve despite welcoming a new baby.

    “Losing the closeness with Dash, our free and adventurous lifestyle, and the risk that he would feel betrayed by my having another child,” the singer, who is expecting a girl, continued. “We’ve come through serious trauma with depth, healing and humor and that has made our bond even stronger. I grieved a lot when I finally decided to put the embryo inside of me.”

    Despite what many may think about the risks having a child at Hawkins age could include, she thinks it’s the opportune time to expand her family.

    “Being 50 is actually an amazing age to have a second child because I am more wise, calm, humorous, appreciative, simple and clear,” she said. “I’m not running around looking for love and validation. I live each day full of gratitude, and that’s good for my children.”

    As the "Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover" singer focuses on the well-being of her son and unborn daughter, she is also clear on what’s good for herself.

    “Fifty is about friendship,” she said. “If I meet someone I want to be with, that person is going to be awesome and so good for my children and I, it will be a fun-filled adventure with another person 50 or over.”

    That's good news for Beth. She still has 5 years to go to have a baby embedded in her barren womb.

    I was thinking that too! I think actually LIKE this song, no hAMAsexual. I actually karaoked it once and put a testosterone twist on it.

    Very original arrangement and lyrics.

    Remember when Adrienne Barbeau had twins at age 51 with Billy Van Zandt? I thought that was crazy back then. Wild to be graduating high school and your mom is 70 years old.

    I tried to do like a Seattle Grungie Cornell/Vedder/Staley-lite spin on it while maintaining the integrity of the song.

    Imagine being 52-53 chasing after a toddler. On second thought, I can't. Let's hope Beefy doesn't get any ideas..
