French rock legend Johnny Hallyday and his wife plan to adopt a child - after they tragically lost their unborn baby in a miscarriage last week (ends18JUN04).

The rock 'n' roll star, 61 and his fourth wife LAETICIA, 29, were devastated when their baby died and are planning to travel to Vietnam to adopt a little girl.

The J'LA CROISE TOUS LES MATINS hitmaker told French publication JOURNAL DU DIMANCHE yesterday (20JUN04), "We are certainly going to adopt a little Vietnamese girl.

"This will not stop us having a child of our own later, when she has recovered."

After failed marriages to SLYVIE VARTAN, BABETH ETIENNE and ADELINE BLONDIEAU, Hallyday wed Laeticia in 1996.

He has an actress daughter Laura Smet, 20, from a relationship to movie star Nathalie Baye.
