Queen Latifah Adopting a Child, ‘Working On’ Starting a Family
A young prince or princess may be in the cards for Queen Latifah, who revealed today on "The View" that she's "working on" adopting a child, WENN.com 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.
