Queen Latifah (real name Dana Owens) tantalized “The View” fans with hints that she has begun the process of adopting a child. Co-host Barbara Walters put her on the spot, asking directly if she was serious about adopting. Latifah responded, “I’m actually kind of working on that.”
The Queen has a remarkably successful track record of keeping her personal life quiet, so as far as anyone knows, she plans to raise the child alone. Adoptive single motherhood is becoming more common in Hollywood, as celebrity women opt to include children in their lives regardless of their marital status.
