Queen Latifah has spoken in the past about her plans to adopt, and this week the 42-year-old actress and singer confirmed that she’s “working on” it.
“I’m actually kind of working on that,” she said when asked about adopting during an appearance on The View. “I just always wanted to bring a child home.”
Earlier this year the Joyful Noise star admitted that she’d “love to be a mom,” adding that she’s long considered adoption. It sounds as though she may be well on her way to motherhood.
“I’m totally serious, so if you got a kid that you don’t … just give me a year – let me set up camp and send me the kid,” she said on The View. “But no, no [I’m] totally [serious about adopting].”
