Louise Redknapp has revealed her sons Charley and Beau want her to find love again.
Singer Louise, 47, was married to football pundit Jamie, 48, for 19 years before their split in 2017.
The mum-of-two hasn't been shy about her regrets over splitting from Jamie. But, the former footballer has since moved on an is now married to Swedish model Frida Andersson-Lourie, following their surprise wedding in October.
Jamie and Frida, 38, are also expecting their first child together.
But, Louise has remained single since her divorce. And she has now revealed her sons Charley, 16, and 12 year old Beau are encouraging her to get back on the dating scene.
She explained the Fabulous magazine: "Oh yeah, they always say: ‘When are you going to [date]?’ Dating just takes time.
"I do eight shows in five days [Louise is currently in 9 To 5: The Musical] and on my days off, going out and having a social life is not my priority.
"It’s being a mum and stocking up the fridge. All my boys care about is me being happy – whatever that is."
She added: "It sounds basic, but I’ve got two things that are really important to me right now: my kids, because I want to be a solid part of their life, and my work.
"Right now, that’s enough for me, I’m not saying forever. I’m learning to just be OK with myself. I’m not loving myself, but I’ve been OK. I’m getting there."
Louise was also asked if she gets anyone sliding into her DMs asking for dates. She laughed and added: "I’m old now! No, I don’t. I promise. I will even show you my phone."
She added: "No one slides into my DMs, although to be honest, I don’t quite know how to look for them.
"Everyone assumes I’m inundated, but I’m not. Maybe I give off a ‘just leave me be’ vibe. I’m happy doing me right now."
Louise has been incredibly open about her split from Jamie – including in her book You've Got This: And Other Things I Wish I Had Known.
On her decision to speak so honestly, Louise explained: "I’m good with what I said. I think you have to be honest, otherwise just don’t do it.

"And it was all about me, not anyone else. Some people love it, some people hate it. I didn’t say anything that I haven’t said in my songs in a roundabout way."
She added: "I don’t regret anything. We don’t always get it right in life – especially me. We all need to sit down and take stock a little bit.
"I found it hard being so personal, because I try to keep myself away from the glare as much as possible. With my kids, I have no worries. We’re so close, they know everything about me – good, bad and ugly. They’re my best friends in the world."
