The Steel Magnolias actress revealed earlier this week during an appearance on ABC's The View that she has always wanted to become a parent.
"I'm actually kind of working on that. I just always wanted to bring a child home," she said during the broadcast.
"I'm totally serious, so if you got a kid that you don't... just give me a year - let me set up camp and send me the kid. But no, no [I'm] totally [serious about adopting]."
Her rep has since told People that there is "nothing new to report" other than what the star said during the interview, so it is unknown how far along in the adoption process she is.
Queen Latifah recently denied rumours that she came out as a lesbian during a recent appearance at a Long Island gay pride parade.
