Queen Latifah recently said she would definitely like children one day “for sure.”
“Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! There’s the intention. I don’t know when, but it’s going to happen. It’s going to have to happen eventually. I’m not sure when, but I would love to have children for sure.”
For the time being, the Queen is busy working with children in the League, a new youth-service organization based in her hometown of Newark, N.J.
“We come back and contribute to the community. We try and put a different face on a city we know is not just about The Sopranos, toxic smells and all this stuff that people try and make Jersey about. When I knew this was coming up, [and was] asked if I would be involved, I said, ‘Sure, no problem, let’s do it.’”
The League gives the 38-year-old the opportunity to work in her hometown and spend time with her family and old friends. It is that “good support system” that has helped her with Hollywood’s pressure to be thin. She has recently lost 20 lbs on Jenny Craig and says she refuses to be someone she’s not,
“I think I’m the best Queen Latifah there ever will be, but I’m not necessarily the best J.Lo, and I’m not the best Halle Berry. They are the best. I’ve gotta be me and let everybody else be them, and I think there’s room for all of us because America looks like all of us.”
