"The whole album is sort of dedicated to my son more than anything, but yeah it's about my relationship with his dad and with him," she explained on the Hits Radio Breakfast. "But also you know the relationship I have with myself and stuff like that."

She continued: "It's like you could be in, you know, discussion or disagreement or a full-blown row if you want, not that me and his dad ever used to do that.

"If you're the one that's sort of initiating the discussion, it'd sort of be like, 'Well hang on a minute, go easy on me, you know, it's not my fault.' So it's just sort of really about that in the way that, you know, the decision that I made really, so yeah."
