Taking it slow: They've been dating for little over a year. But Nicole Scherzinger, 38, has revealed that she's in no rush to settle down and start a family with Grigor Dimitrov, 25,

She elaborated: 'I feel like I haven’t scratched the surface of what I’m supposed to do and create, and that’s where my mind is at. 

'So when I’ve got there, and it’s the right time, then maybe I’ll think about kids and a family.'

However, if the time comes that Nicole chooses to expand her family, it'll no doubt be a quiet affair, as she explained she likes to maintain a sense of mystery around her love life. 

Candid chat: Speaking to InStyle magazine for their final print edition, the songstress revealed that she was planning on waiting a few years before even considering having children

Following her high-profile on/off relationship with Lewis Hamilton, the starlet has kept under the radar with her tennis player beau since they began dating in July 2015. 

And Nicole explained that keeping their romance private has been a conscious decision.

She revealed: 'I don’t like to put focus on that. I’m happy, and I’m in a relationship, and we like to keep it our own business. And that’s it.'

The X Factor judge also spoke out about the other main man in her life, Simon Cowell, who she now takes a seat next to every weekend on the ITV show's judging panel. 

Discussing the change in their relationship, she revealed: 'The past few years I’ve worked with him, he was a lot tougher and more ruthless. But I feel like this season he’s a lot softer. 

'Like we all watched [an episode playback] yesterday and a few people were like, "Awwww!". We got a few "Awwws" for him. And the reason for this? Eric. Being a dad. 

'We all grow up sometime. He’s at a different place in his life. We’re all at different places in our lives.'

But whilst she may be at a different stage in her life, she was quick to point out that she still has a love of music.

Discussing the two-year gap since her last flurry of singles, she explained: 'Just because I haven’t put out new music in a while doesn’t mean I’m not making new music.

'I’m just taking my time to make sure the next stuff that I do represents me properly.

'Like I’m at an age now, and enough time has gone by where it’s not enough to, like, be a junkie and just try to get that next hit. 

'It’s like, "What body of work am I really putting out, and what am I leaving behind?"

'It’s time to start thinking about something that has some substance and depth, and that tells my story. 

'That says something about who I am. I’m thinking outside of the box this time. 

'This time I’m thinking, "How could I do it my way?"'
