Queen Latifah to adopt baby…?

03/29/2006 at 05:29 PM ET

163_queenlatifah_060329_phawthorne_57203 Update: Queen Latifah’s not adopting yet! While walking the red carpet at a premiere last night, she said, "I’m not pregnant and I’m not adopting right now…So everybody take a deep breath and slap yourselves in the face for all that gossip!" We’re slapping ourselves right now, Latifah!

March 22nd – According to The Insider, Queen Latifah has announced that she will begin the process of adopting a baby shortly.  (The page on The Insider’s site only says she wants to be a mother, but the TV version is broadcasting that she has cleared her schedule, has people galvanized, and will hopefully be a mom by this time next year.)  No additional information is known but be assured we will update this post as soon as we find out.

Thanks to CBB Readers Michelle Anne, Toni, and I’mAGossip.

The Insider article didn’t say anything about adoption..it just said she hopes to me a mother by next year.

I watched th einsider on tv today they had Queen walking along the street and he said happy news for queen latifah as she is in prcess of adoption just waiting papers to be signed.of course that could mean within a year cause adoption process can take awhile.I said I would watch insider again to see if I missed the meaning but yes in the artical online it says she just hopes to be a mother.
Either way she will make a wonderful mother

Michelle Anne, we received an email from someone who works on the show correcting the post, that’s why I changed it. Please let us know if the show says something different when you watch it again.
