X Factor star Tulisa is reportedly hoping to quit showbiz as soon as possible and settle down.

The singer's dad Plato told the Sunday Mirror that his daughter wants kids more than fame.

The 23-year-old, current dating Skins star Jack O'Connell, is hoping that her £500,000 fees for shows like The X Factor will help her provide for her family for the rest of her life.

“Although Tulisa loves her music and The X Factor, she has told me that as soon as she finds the right guy and decides to have a family that will be her priority," her dad explained to the newspaper.

“I can see her disappearing out of the public eye so she can concentrate on being a good mum when the time is right and she has made a bit more money. She’s told me she wants to make a ‘nest’ and have a happy family more than anything else. Family is the most important thing to her."

Plato went on: “Tulisa told me, ‘When I have children and I’m totally successful I won’t have to worry about money’. She is a good, grounded girl who has her priorities in ­order.

“One day when she has her kids she wants to lock herself away, be safe and grow normal kids. She has told me that it would make her the happiest girl in the world if she could make me a grandfather."

And it seems that new boyfriend Jack could well be the one.

It's still early days yet, but Tulisa's dad revealed: “She really likes Jack. She told me, ‘He is a really nice, down-to-earth boy’ and I think that is what she likes about him. She is ­really happy with him.”
