The American Idol judge already has four-year-old twins Max and Emme with estranged husband Marc Anthony but after working with siblings who had been adopted from Ethiopia after their mother died on new movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Jennifer is considering the “selfless act”.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “It’s funny because before the movie I never really thought about adoption, I just always wanted to have my own baby and I was so focused on that and it took me a while to have my own.
“But after the film and during the making of the film when I held those two little Ethiopian twins I fell in love instantly and I can see how somebody can do this, how it is so easy to embrace a child who has nothing.
“It’s a beautiful, selfless act of love and it’s something that you go, ‘OK, I understand these feelings, I get this. I almost took those babies home. I fell in love with those babies.”
However, right now Jennifer – who is dating backing dancer Casper Smart – says she is kept busy raising Max and Emme.
She explained: “[adopting] would be a blessing but I’m focused on doing it right with those two and I’ve really got my hands full.”
