A young prince or princess may be in the cards for Queen Latifah, who revealed today on “The View” that she’s “working onadopting a child, reports. The rapper, actress and singer told host Barbara Walters that a TV movie was the impetus for her getting the ball rolling on raising a little one.

“I think I saw one of those specials … you know those movies of the week,” said the 42-year-old superstar. “And it was like… I just always wanted to bring a child home.”

“So if you got a kid that you don’t [want] … Just give me a year — let me set up camp and send me the kid!” she jokingly added.

Born Dana Owens, Latifah has long faced — and deflected — questions regarding her sexuality, and earlier this year, she denied that her performance at a California gay pride event amounted to her coming out as a lesbian.
