Queen Latifah is ready to become a mother and wants to adopt a child.
The rapper-turned-actress has long refused to comment on reports she's gay, and keeps her private life strictly out of the public domain.
But the 41-year-old star has opened up about her desire to be a mum, and reveals she has been keen to adopt a child since she was a teen.
She tells America's More magazine, "I'm definitely going to adopt - or have - a child. I've wanted to adopt since I was 17 or 18 years old."
