Rocker Adam Lambert says he would like to join the ranks of celebrity gay dads Ricky Martin, Neil Patrick Harris and Clay Aiken.

The American Idol season 8 runner-up discussed the possibility while on tour in Australia.

In answering a fan's question about fatherhood, the 28-year-old rock star said he was open to the idea.

“I think there will come a time when that will be a possibility,” he said. “At his point I think it's kinda far off because I think I'm just at the beginning of a career and I want to concentrate on that. If I was to raise a young person, I would want to give them all of me and so I would want to make sure I was in a place where the career could definitely be put on the back burner for five to ten years.”

On Monday, Lambert reached out to troubled gay teens considering suicide, recording a 90-second, black-and-white clip for the It Gets Better campaign. “It gets better,” Lambert tells the teens, then adds, “but it's up to you.”
