The Echoes singer explained that he would like to do something that isn't "selfish" by having kids.
Young told the Daily Mail: "I'm very broody and I really want kids, but I don't think it will happen until I'm into my 40s and in a long-term relationship.
"This job can make you very self-absorbed and I'd love to do something less selfish. I like the idea of doing the school run and then going home to write a song."
Young also admitted that he would like to be in a relationship, but wants to wait for the right man.
The 32-year-old added: "I'm ready for a new relationship, but it will happen when the time is right."
Young recently confessed that he was "terrified" of being gay until he reached his late 20s.
