Celebrities who have adopted kids

For all sorts of reasons, there are occasions when parents find it necessary to consider adoption as a means of starting, or expanding, a family. And if you’re a celebrity couple yearning for little ones, this often means raising a family in the full glare of publicity. 

Tiffany Haddish opened up to E! News on May 3 about taking a big step in her adoption journey. “I’m taking parenting classes now to adopt,” she revealed. The beloved comedian, who is dating rapper Common, said that in terms of the age of children she’s “looking at five and up, really like seven,” explaining, “I want them to be able to know how to use the restroom on their own and talk. I want them to know that I put in the work and I wanted them.”

Haddish said surrogacy wasn’t appealing to her, explaining, “I don’t want to pay nobody to carry my baby neither because then I have to go through a process of giving myself injections and all that stuff.” She also revealed a lesser known fact about her past that may have impacted her choice to adopt: “When I was 21, I was really hard up with money and gave up a bunch of eggs. So who knows? I might got some kids out in these streets. I doubt it though because I never got the bonus.”
