And I probably will even if it does happen naturally."The decision will see the screen beauty become the latest in a long line of celebrities - including Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman - who have chosen to give an orphan a home.She explained to America's Extra magazine: "There are too many babies being born."

Halle has already confessed to US talk show giant Oprah Winfrey that she wants to have a baby by the time she turns 40 - this August (06).

The star said: "If there's no serious man in my life, whoever I'm dating at the time, I'll say, 'Hey, would you like to have a baby?'

"I really yearn for a child and I can't wait much longer."

Halle has been married and divorced twice - the first time was to baseball player David Justice, the second time was to actor Eric Benet.
