Queen Latifah dropped by ABC’s femme gabfest The View on Wednesday, where the rapper-turned-actress revealed that she is “working on” adopting her first child.
When quizzed by co-host Barbara Walters about whether she had seriously considered adoption, Queen replied:
“I’m actually kind of working on that…I think I saw one of those specials…you know those movies of the week. And it was like — and I just always wanted to bring a child home.”
She added that it wouldn’t really matter where the child came from:
“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. But no, no totally.”
Latifah has long been romantically linked to her personal trainer Jeannette Jenkins (Yep, she’s a girl…)
