#OMG: Queen Latifah Trying To Get Knocked Up?
QUEEN LATIFAH is having a baby, The ENQUIRER has learned!
After mulling over motherhood for a couple of years, the 40-year-old Chicago star and her longtime girlfriend and personal trainer Jeanette Jenkins have finally decided to raise a little one, say friends.
“Queen and Jeanette are incredibly happy with each other, and they want to start a family,” a close pal told The ENQUIRER.
“A baby is their No. 1 priority, and they’re considering all their options.”
Latifah hasn’t ruled out getting pregnant, but since she does have some major work commitments coming up, they’re also considering having Jeanette carry the child, said the source.
“Surrogacy and adoption are two other possibilities.
“Neither one of them is hung up on where the baby comes from. They know they’re going to fall head over heels in love with their child however the baby comes to them. They both feel children are a blessing.”
The actress/rapper, who recently hosted the People’s Choice Awards, fought through a myriad of personal problems before finding happiness with Jeanette.
She spiraled into a major depression after her brother Lance died in a 1992 motorcycle crash, and she later struggled with alcohol and drugs.
“As much as she loves kids, there was a time when Queen thought she’d never get to be called ‘Mommy,'” said the source
