Beth DittoGay Gossip singer Beth Ditto "prayed to God" she would fall pregnant as a teenager - so she could hide her sexuality.
 
The "Standing in the Way of Control" singer realized she was a homosexual at the age of 15, but dated a male pal to avoid attracting the attention of teenage boys in her native Searcy, Arkansas.
 
The couple's relationship lasted for three years - and Ditto, real name Mary Beth Patterson, admits she hoped to become a mom so she wouldn't have to reveal she was a lesbian.
 
She says, "I used to, like, pray to get pregnant when I was 18. I did not want to be gay. I did not want to face that truth and I used to pray to God that I would just get pregnant."
 
And now it looks like she's about to get her prayers answered - she recently told Marie Claire magazine she is planning to start a family with her girlfriend within the next year.
 
The lesbian icon, 29, insists motherhood is the next thing on her priority list after she launches her new plus-size clothing line, revealing, "I do want to go to the doctor in the next year and start taking it (pregnancy) really seriously."
