    Sheryl Crow Adds Baby Boy to Her Nest

    All Sheryl Crow wants to do is be a mom.

    The singer announced Friday she had adopted a two-week-old baby boy.

    "I am so excited to share with you guys that I've adopted a little boy," the singer wrote on her official Website.

    "His name is Wyatt (after my dad) Steven (after my little brother and Scooter) and we are enjoying some very private family time."

    The singer did not provide any details as to where the baby was born or on the circumstances that led to him being put up for adoption.

    It's the first child for Crow, who has never married.

    The 45-year-old singer was once engaged to Lance Armstrong, but the couple ended their relationship in February 2006.

    During their courtship, there were indications that Crow had motherhood on her mind.

    Though she denied reports that she had been visiting fertility clinics in an effort to get pregnant, the singer admitted she felt a close bond with Armstrong's young son and twin daughters from his previous marriage, saying she took her role in raising them "very seriously."

    "I have been in their life...for almost as long as they can remember, which is really nice for me," she said in January 2006. "And, for them, there's nothing jarring about it. We have a great relationship."

    A month later, that relationship came to an end, when Crow and Armstrong announced they were going their separate ways.

    In a further blow, Crow revealed three weeks after the breakup that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

    The singer underwent successful surgery and made a full recovery, but said the experience made her more aware of the importance of family.

    Last summer, she told CNN's Larry King that she would "absolutely" consider adoption.

    "If I were to adopt, I could love a child that came through somebody else's womb as easily as I could my own," Crow said.

    Now the singer can put her maternal instincts to the test.
