Singer Cheryl Cole in an interview post her divorce last week with soccer player husband Ashley has revealed that she was grateful they had not started a family before the split. However, she said, becoming a mother is sure on her list of things in future.

In an interview to Vogue magazine, she said that motherhood is something that she wanted to achieve. It is the toughest job but most rewarding too, she said. Thinking about yourself constantly isn't so healthy. I suppose that's the point of having children, isn't it? Being able to live your life through them instead of you, having them be your motivation?
