Music and motherhood are at the forefront of Oksana Grigorieva's mind at the moment, not the other big 'M' word – marriage.
Mel Gibson's pregnant partner, who will welcome the couple's first child in early December, dispelled reports of an engagement this week during an appearance on GMTV.
"We have no plans to marry whatsoever," the Russian brunette told host Lorraine Kelly. "I haven't thought about it."
Instead she is focusing on the arrival of her second child – she is already a mother to a 12-year-old son with Bond actor Timothy Dalton – and her new album, Beautiful Heartache.
Those two paths certainly cross. Oksana met film star Mel through her music after he signed her to his record label.
And the dad-of-seven has been very active in supporting his love's work.
"Mel conceived and produced four videos for me," Oksana said. "He has an incredible vision. He actually was amazing and gave me my own creativity."
Meanwhile, the impending arrival of a child with a world-famous superstar is something the singer is taking in her stride.
"I've been a mother for 12 years, and, of course, there is no first time mother's trepidation as such. So naturally it's more relaxed, and I'm very dynamic so the pregnancy falls into my work schedule," said the 39-year-old.
"How could one not be impressed with such an intimate connection in the miracle of life. It's beautiful, children are beautiful," she added.
