In the new issue of In Touch, an insider reveals Justin Bieber “really wants to become a dad.” Since quitting his Purpose world tour in July, “Justin’s been spending a lot of alone time thinking about what he wants long-term, and having a baby is definitely at the top of his list,” the insider explains to In Touch.

Justin’s pals, like his manager, Scooter Braun, and his Hillsong Church pastor, Carl Lentz, have kids, and Justin “adores spending time with them,” the insider says. “He’s also been hanging out with his [pregnant] friend Kylie Jenner and has told her he’d love to babysit.”

Justin, 23, does not have a steady girlfriend at the moment, but he’s not letting that stop him. The singer, says the insider, is considering “adopting a baby.” Justin “is changing his lifestyle in an attempt to make himself a better person.”
