In a bit of a shock announcement (to me at least!), Jessica Simpson‘s publicist has confirmed rumored reports that she’s looking into adopting a child. Jessica, 25, had previously mentioned that she wants to adopt a child before becoming pregnant herself, but with her divorce proceedings in full swing and a return to the single life imminent, many had thought adoption was a distant plan. However, her rep confirms that, while nothing has been finalized yet, "it’s true that she’s exploring options." He would not give an answer when asked how soon Jessica would adopt, or where from.
In the past, Jessica has spoken highly of Angelina Jolie, who’s adopt/get pregnant plan she seems to want to emulate. She’s said,"I think Angelina Jolie has done amazing, amazing things, and the international adoption rate just since her has skyrocketed. It’s unbelievable."
