AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish is serious about her plans to start motherhood. The comedian/actress, who has opened up about her plans to adopt a child, has revealed that she is currently in the process of adoption and that she feels the urge to do so due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 41-year-old shares, "I'm currently looking, deciding on adopting." On why now, she explains, "First of all, especially after this pandemic, there are so many children left without their parents."
Showing her concern for children who are left without care, Tiffany adds, "There are a lot of people that need to be loved. It's Foster Care Awareness Month right now, and I think we all should be aware and try to do what we can."
Tiffany goes on revealing that she initially wanted to be a foster parent, but her attorney advised against it. "I really wanted to be a foster parent, but because I'm at a certain level of success, my lawyer suggested that it's probably best to just adopt, and I'm on that process now," she divulges.
The "Bad Trip" star also reveals her plans to adopt an older child, explaining, "I want to get somebody that's five and up. You know, already knows how to use the restroom, already knows how to talk, already knows how to communicate. All I want to do is pour knowledge in ... get them ready for the big, bad world. That's what I want to do."
As part of the adoption process, Tiffany, who was in the foster system herself as a child, says that she has completed the parenting classes required to start the adoption process. She stresses the need for such classes, saying it's something that's "super important" in her life plan "for a multitude of reasons."
