London - Queen Latifah is “working on” adopting a child.

The 42-year-old singer and actress looks to be edging nearer to achieving her dream of having a child one day, and the brunette star insists she is “totally serious” about taking on children through such a process.

Speaking on The View about whether she would like to adopt a child, she said: “I'm actually kind of working on that. I just always wanted to bring a child home.

“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... I’m totally serious about adopting.”

Last year, the Ice Age: Continental Drift star outlined her intentions to have a child one day and while she is perfectly happy to have a baby naturally, she has dreamed of adopting since she was a teenager.

She explained: “I'm definitely going to adopt - or have - a child. I've wanted to adopt since I was 17 or 18 years old.” - Bang Showbiz
