Brooklyn Decker: “I Want To Adopt A Baby With An Intellectual Disability”

Brooklyn Decker wants to adopt a baby with "intellectual disabilities" one day. The Battleship star says she was inspired by her aunt - who is a Special Olympics athlete. 

The 25-year-old actress - who is married to tennis pro Andy Roddick - tells Flaunt magazine, "I want to adopt a baby with an intellectual disability one day. I mean, that's in the distant future, but that's always been a goal of mine."

Brooklyn Decker wants to adopt a baby with “intellectual disabilities” one day. The Battleship star says she was inspired by her aunt – who is a Special Olympics athlete.

The 25-year-old actress – who is married to tennis pro Andy Roddick - tells Flaunt magazine, “I want to adopt a baby with an intellectual disability one day. I mean, that’s in the distant future, but that’s always been a goal of mine.”

She adds, “Unfortunately a lot of kids with intellectual disabilities are given up for adoption when they’re born because it’s a lot for their family.”

Brooklyn – who is also in What to Expect When You’re Expecting – once was asked what she does in her downtime.

She told Popsugar.com, “I’m a homebody in my downtime! I’m an outdoorsy girl. I love being away from it all and being active. I’m like a little kid.”

    Whoa! How pretentious does she sound. You just go ahead and do these great things you don’t inform the news of it.

      Do you not understand how interviews work? She isn’t just spouting off out of nowhere. She’s presumably responding to a question, probably one about whether and when she’s planning on having children.

      Its called an interview. First the question is asked and then she answers. Easy concept.

      It is such a shame that people find bad things to say about good things.
      I seriously doubt that she started talking about the topic if someone didn’t ask about kids in her future, so you seriously need to be less negative.

    Even if it was pretentious – whatever!
    I mean it can only support them if they get more attention because of this interview? It could encourage others to think about this and maybe adopt such a child. That’s definetely sth good, right?!
