Tiffany Haddish, who spent her childhood in foster care, has spoken out about her desire to adopt and the age of the child she wants.
In an interview published on Wednesday, Jan. 19, the actress told EDaily !’s Pop: “I recently returned from a trip to the continent of Africa. People tried to offer me their children when I was in Eritrea recently.” ‘Hold on, I have to go get the paperwork right now,’ I said.
I can’t just bring my children along.” Tiffany Haddish said when asked if she still intended to adopt: “Not right now, but possibly later this year or early next year.
” The comedian, who was placed in foster care as a child, has been candid about wanting to adopt a child one day. She said her experience in foster care made her want to someday adopt a child from the system. In May 2021, she explained to Daily Pop why surrogacy isn’t the right route for her.
She said: “I don’t wanna pay nobody to carry my baby neither, ’cause then I have to go through a process of giving myself injections and all that stuff. “And I already gave up — here goes something everybody don’t know, I’m gonna tell you: When I was 21 I was really hard up for some money and I gave up a bunch of eggs.
” “So who knows, I might got some kids out here in these streets. I doubt it, though, because I never got the bonus.
Maybe somewhere though, in cryo somewhere!” joked Haddish. At the time, she said she was “taking parenting classes now to adopt.
” Speaking of the age of the child she’s looking to adopt, she said: “I’m looking at, you know, 5 and up — really like 7. I want them to be able to know how to use the restroom on their own and talk. I want them to know that I put in the work and I wanted them.
