Jelena Dokic has revealed her plans to have children following her heartbreaking split with long-time boyfriend Tin Bikic.

The former professional tennis player, 40, said while she doesn’t want any biological children, she is open to adopting.

‘My ex-boyfriend Tin and I were going to have kids. Maybe that situation will not happen for me and that’s okay, I’ve made peace with that,’ she told Woman’s Day.

‘But if I do have kids – and I do want kids because I love them – I’m going to go the adoption route. I’ve always wanted to do that. 

‘There are a lot of unfortunate kids out there who need love and a stable home and I think I can provide that, even if I’m on my own . It’s something I think I might do in the next three to five years,’ she added.

Over the weekend, Jelena opened up about her eating disorder in Stellar magazine.

The star athlete revealed she spent years struggling with her relationship with food due to the trauma she experienced growing up.

The former professional tennis player, 40, said while she doesn’t want any biological children, she is open to adopting 

She said much of her disordered eating stemmed from the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father and his weaponisation of food when she was just a teenager. 

‘I actually haven’t talked about my eating disorder [before] because, for so long, I didn’t understand it,’ she said.

‘But now I know that for more than 90 per cent of people that do have eating disorders, it comes from trauma.’

The sports commentator went on to say: ‘Getting professional help saved my life. I find the eating disorder quite complex. I’m working really hard on it.’

Jelena assured she has made great strides to heal from the trauma she experienced at the beginning of her tennis career and as a child refugee. 

She said penning her memoir Fearless: Finding The Power To Thrive was a ‘massive step’ and admitted she has ‘more balance’ in her life now.  

The Australian has long been open about her struggles with depression, social media abuse, body shaming and the family violence she suffered throughout her career.
