Queen Latifah and her (supposed) partner of four years, Jeanette Jenkins, are reportedly planning to adopt a baby soon,
“It’s top secret right now, but they are hoping to have a little one by Christmas,” a longtime pal told The National Enquirer. “They’re trying to keep it quiet because they don’t want to jinx the whole thing.” Latifah’s sister, who works in New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services, is helping guide her through the red tape, said the source.
They are reportedly planning to adopt domestically, not internationally,
“I can understand why people go outside the U.S. You can adopt someone here, and the birth parents have three years to come back and get that child. That’s terrifying,” said the Oscar-nominated “Chicago” star. But she says poor American children “can use just as much assistance as someone from around the world. I want to do something here.”
The actress said last year,
“I’ve always wanted to have [babies] and adopt. When I was little, I remember seeing TV shows and a child would be adopted and be happy. I just always felt like there are so many kids out there who need a parent.”

Mother and Olympian, Dara Torres, won three silver medals in swimming at the Beijing games and has won twelve Olympic medals in total over the years. Of course she was happy to discuss her Olympic accomplishments, but she also couldn’t resist discussing her return home to her 2-year-old daughter, Tessa Grace,
“I’m gonna put my bags down, and I’m going to go to my daughters room. It’s going to be too late, she’s gonna be asleep. But I’m gonna go to the door and peek in and just look at her. That’s the first thing I’m gonna do.” When asked if she’ll wake Tessa, smart mom Dara replied, “I can’t. ‘Cause then I’ll be stuck with her awake all night.”
Apparently Tessa Grace has a few favorite things — swimming with mom, and watching mom swim,
“The minute she knows that I’m gonna be on TV, she, well, the nanny, tells me that she’s glued to the TV, so that makes me feel good,” Dara said.
When asked what she thinks she represents for women over 40, Dara, 41, replied,
“I think the biggest thing is, which I’ve said it in the past, is you just don’t put an age-limit on your dreams, and just follow your heart. And that’s what I’ve done, and I think I’ve proved that — uh, age is just a number.”
