London: Pop superstar Cher regrets trying to juggle motherhood with her chart-topping career at a young age and believes she would have been a better parent if she had started her family late.

The `Turn Back Time` hitmaker gave birth to her daughter Chastity with her former husband Sonny Bono at the age of 23 when their double act Sonny & Cher was at the peak of its success.

The singer later married rocker Gregg Allman and had a second child, son Elijah, in 1976.

However, Cher was often busy balancing her job as an entertainer and a mother, she fears she failed to give her kids the attention they needed, Contactmusic reported.

"I have been a good mother in fits and starts, but when you do work like mine, and I`m like most working mothers - they never feel like they`re doing a good job because they`re never able to devote enough time. I have a lot of regrets about my parenting... Maybe I should have had children when I was older," said the 64-year-old singer.
