Justin Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette, decided to do a Twitter Q&A on Sunday, Dec. 8—and her answers were quite surprising. While chatting with the singer's fans online, the Nowhere But Up author dished on everything from her son's tattoos to her thoughts on becoming a grandmother.

Asked about Bieber's body art, Mallette admitted she had mixed feelings. "I wish he didn't have tattoos but I do like them. I'm torn. Weird right?" she shared. And though she's proud of her 19-year-old son's accomplishments, Malette revealed that her most cherished memories with Bieber are from when he was a little boy—particularly those that occurred at bedtime. "I would tuck him in, read to him, pray with him & talk & giggle sometimes for an hour or more. *sigh. I miss that!" she wrote.

(Fun fact: Bieber's first word was "money," according to Mallette. "Instead of Mommy he said Money & Daddy!")

Mallette added that it was "very hard" raising Bieber as a single mom in Canada. "But I reached out for help, prayed a lot, read parenting books & did my very best to be the best mom I could be."

The movie producer is currently unattached. "As @justinbieber would say.. Single & ready to mingle. Please pray for a good husband for me!" she tweeted in response to one user who asked if she has a boyfriend.

Though Bieber has often said he'd like to be a young father, his mother would prefer he waits to start a family of his own. When one Twitter user asked Mallette if she's excited at the prospect of having grandchildren, she replied, "Ahhh omg could u imagine me a Grandma already!? Hopefully that's a long way in the future!"
