Jessica Simpson is jonesing to be a mother. Lord. Is she in the right mind (does she have a mind), to adopt? I mean, she’s in the midst of a divorce. The upside to her yearning for the pitter patter of little feet is that she could finally use the phrase “drop the kids of at the pool” to actually mean just that.
“Nothing has been finalized yet” as to when and how Simpson will adopt, her publicist, Rob Shuter, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. But he added, “It is true that she’s exploring options.”
Shuter said Simpson and her family have anonymously contributed funds to a smattering of Mexican orphanages for several years now. The singer started visiting the orphanages with a church group at age 11.
“I want to adopt, and I plan to adopt before I have my own kids,” the pop star recently told TV’s “Extra.”
In the interview, Simpson cited a certain high profile mother as an influence.
“I think Angelina Jolie has done amazing, amazing things, and the international adoption rate just since her has skyrocketed,” she said. “It’s unbelievable.”
