Jillian Michaels Trying to Adopt From The Congo

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

JILLIAN Michaels is working hard at having a child.

The 37-year-old Biggest Loser alum has revealed she’s trying to adopt from the Congo.

“My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo,” Michaels told Us Weekly.

“So the paperwork is done, and now it’s just a waiting game. It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, ‘Oh, we have your referral,’ which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her.”

After announcing that she would be ending her contract with the NBC reality weight-loss series in December, Michaels explained her desire to start a family.

“I’m going to adopt,” she said in an interview last spring with Women’s Health magazine. “I can’t handle doing that to my body. Also, when you rescue something, it’s like rescuing a part of yourself.”

    So the only reason she is adopting is because she doesn’t want to go from a size 2 to a size 6.That says alot about her.She is not ready to be a mother if she is that vain about her weight.Just wait untill the kid either barfs,pees or poops on her.I wonder how she will handle that?

    Jillian Michaels admitted back in March that she has struggled with infertility, and that she was ashamed that she wouldn’t be able to carry a baby of her own. She made that remark and then let the public know that she was deeply sorry, and that her own insecurity was just hitting her hard.

    Wow, slow news day? Jillian talked about this MONTHS ago. She is adopting because she is infertile, not because she is vain. Do some research next time.
