Billie Eilish says she would 'rather die' than not have children in the future... and admits she 'dreads' the idea of being anxious about her kids

Billie Eilish has declared she would 'rather die' than not become a mother in the future.

The 20-year-old pop star explained that she always wanted to have children and that becoming a parent was one of her main goals in life during an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine.

The performer did admit, however, that she also 'dreads it,' as she will feel anxious about protecting her kids as they grow up.

Eilish stated during the sitdown: '[I would] rather die [than not have kids]... I need them.'

The Bad Guy songwriter went on to express that she was concerned about the potential shortcomings that her future children would experience.   

'The older I get, the more I experience things, I just think, uuggh, what am I going to do when my kid thinks that this is the right thing to do and I'm, like, no, it's not! And they won't listen to me,' she said.

Eilish was homeschooled as a child along with her brother and frequent collaborator Finneas and 'graduated' at 15 when she passed a high school equivalency exam.

Speaking about the issues facing kids in America right now, Billie confessed she's horrified by the fear of school shootings. 

She added: 'Why is it OK to be scared to go to school? ... You go to school and be prepared for a life-changing traumatic experience or dying. What? Who? Where is the logic there?'

Eilish recently opened up about her struggle with life in the spotlight, admitting she became depressed despite enjoying huge success after releasing her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? 

The performer released the hit album in 2019 when she was only 17.

She made her comments during an episode of the Telekom Electronic Beat podcast, stating: 'I really didn't love [my success] for a couple of years.'

The Los Angeles native went on to express that she was initially unsure about embracing her new status as a hitmaker.

'The first few years of my career I was very young and very depressed and didn't even know if I wanted anything that I had,' she said.

Eilish has since made a series of behind-the-scenes changes over recent years and her entire outlook on life has been transformed.

She added: 'I was kind of in this zone of like, I don't want to be here. Stupid little kid and I've made changes.'

The performer pointed out that she had become more relaxed over the past few years. 

'Then we got a kind of less brutal touring schedule and we got more people and we didn't have to do it all ourselves any more. And it just became really really enjoyable,' she said.
