Questions about starting her own family while being responsible for her brother and niece have Savannah Chrisley at crossroads.

Although the podcaster has remained mum on the details of her newly-acquired relationship, she has worries about how her being in charge of the youngsters would affect it. She has been the kids' primary support amid her parents Todd and Julie's long-running legal battle that culminated in them beginning their years-long prison sentences for fraud and tax evasion in January.

While the real estate developer got a 12-year jail term, his 50-year-old wife landed seven, adding an order for the lovebirds to serve an additional 16 months of probation upon release.

Savannah Chrisley Has Doubts About Her Future As A Family Woman

Savannah has continued to open up about life after Todd and Julie's legal troubles made her the sole guardian of her 16-year-old brother Grayson and ten-year-old niece Chole — whom her parents adopted from her elder brother Kyle in 2016.

In the latest episode of her podcast, "Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley," the 25-year-old beauty addressed her feelings about and discussed what her future looked like with such a hefty responsibility. Kicking off the touchy subject, she stated:

"I'm in that anger part of grief right now. I'm just angry at everything. And also, after taking on the kids. I'm like, 'Okay. Do I actually want kids? Do I? You know, seeing how much this whole thing has affected us?'"

Even though she had admitted that her reaction was borne from "a place of anger," the reality star still clarified that she held no ill feelings about stepping into the significant role for the children. She pointed out that she enjoyed spending quality time with the two adorable kids whom she considered to be her "everything" before continuing:

"I try to be a good adult figure in their life, but it's really hard being 25 and having two kids and trying to figure out what's best for them because normally you get to grow — like you get to grow from one to two to three to four. Like you get to grow through the ages. Now, I'm just being thrown into it."

As the conversation progressed, the "Growing Up Chrisley" star revealed that she had gotten a glimmer of hope during a recent trip by her and the kids to visit Todd. She recalled that Grayson and Chloe were in high spirits despite the circumstances, "laughing and singing and cutting up," and it was then she realized "we're gonna be okay.'"

Savannah has been slowly finding her feet since her parents' incarceration, most recently dipping her toes back into the dating pool. The actress even confirmed she was dating somebody during an interview in March, sharing that she was keen to keep it away from prying eyes in "a safe place" until she figured out where the relationship was going.

Per The Blast, the bleached blonde intended to make her new flame understands that she and her wards were a package deal. To that end, she has made it a rule to clarify to her love interest that:

"This is what you're getting into. Guess what? There's two kids; my parents aren't in the greatest place in the world right now. You know it all, 110 percent transparency. If you're in, you're in. If you're out, you're out."

The Belmont University Alum Shared A Glimpse At Her Upcoming Tell-All Book

Last month, The Blast reported that Savannah teased her followers with the possibility of a tell-all book being in the works. She had taken to her Instastories, where she dropped a screenshot of what appeared to be an excerpt from the alleged book alongside the write-up:


As for the excerpt, the "Chrisley Knows Best" alum revealed that it had not been easy to string the words that told her the truth and lessons learned together. She noted that her life experiences had taught her that "life is a team sport," making it imperative for her readers to "find good people, genuine, honest, faithful, loyal people who will take the ride with you."

"My hope and my goal is that as you travel through these pages with me, we will become sojourners together," she added. Savannah also included a "Yes" or "No" poll asking her 2.7 million followers if they would read the book when it drops.
