Simpson Plans To Adopt Before Having Kids Of Her Own
Jessica Simpson has been inspired to follow her adoption dreams by celebrity activist Angelina Jolie. The newly-single pop star once begged her father to let her adopt a Mexican orphan during a trip to Latin America when she was a teenager, and now she's seriously considering giving a child a home and a better life. And it's all thanks to actress Jolie, who has adopted two kids and is carrying boyfriend Brad Pitt's first child. Simpson says, "I think Angelina Jolie has done amazing, amazing things and the international adoption rate just since her (decision to adopt) has skyrocketed. It's unbelievable. "I want to adopt and I plan to adopt before I have my own kids." And Simpson is hoping she can inspire other wannabe mums to follow her example by urging politicians to help cut through red tape that prevents certain couples from adopting. The pop star is planning to speak to PRESIDENT George W Bush about the issue, urging him to make it easier for interracial couples to adopt.
