Queen Latifah was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where she announced she’d like to adopt and have kids. A lot of them. The rapper-turned-actress-turned-Covergirl spokeswoman says she envisions 18 heirs apparent to her throne.
“I totally want, like, 18 babies,” said the possible future Queen Mum. Like, that’s not a family. That’s, like, two softball teams.
Unlike other celebrity child collectors, Latifah insists she wouldn’t go outside the United States to create her brood when there are so many American kids in need.
I wonder if the pre-adoption personal background check will confirm any of those nagging rumors that the Queen has a lady-in-waiting-with-benefits? Doesn’t it look like she’s trying to send us a subtle message?
I also wonder what Jeanette Jenkins, Latifah’s alleged on-again, off-again girlfriend of three years, has to say about the plan to adopt 18 kids. “See ya,” would be understandable.
But hey, if Jeanette’s down with it, I guess Heather and her 17 brothers and sisters will have two mommies. Allegedly.
