Tiffany Haddish is taking parenting classes to prepare her for adopting a child.
The 41-year-old actress – who is currently in a relationship with Common – has revealed she plans on starting the process of adopting in the near future, and is already attending classes to help her learn the fundamentals of parenting.
She said: “I’m taking parenting classes now so I can adopt. I’m looking at [ages] five and up, really like seven. I want them to be able to use the restroom on their own and talk. I want them to know that I put in the work and I wanted them.”
Tiffany admitted it would be a miracle if she gets pregnant and has a biological child, because she has “taken the precautions” to make sure that doesn’t happen.
When asked about the possibility of getting pregnant herself, she added: “Let me tell you, if I get pregnant that is all God tearing down all walls, all barriers. I have definitely taken the precautions to protect me. If that s*** happens, I’m going to hire some help, and I’m definitely going to cry a lot.”
And the ‘Bad Trip’ star also isn’t interested in having a surrogate mother carry her baby for her, because she already “gave up a bunch of eggs” for money when she was younger.
Speaking to E!’s ‘Daily Pop’, she said: “I don’t wanna pay nobody to carry my baby neither, because then I have to go through a process of getting myself injections and all that stuff. I already gave up … here comes something everybody don’t know … when I was 21, I was really hard up with money and I gave up a bunch of eggs.”
Meanwhile, Tiffany previously spoke about growing up in foster care herself, and admitted she found it difficult being sent to stay with "strangers".
She said: "It was the worst feeling in the world. You're dropped in these strangers' houses, you don't know these people, these people don't know you, you don't know if they're gonna hurt you, if they're gonna be kind, you don't have a clue what's going on ...
"I remember when I got my first suitcase, I felt like I was a traveller, like I had a purpose, like I'm a person, like I'm not garbage, I got this - it's mine, and my things are in here, and wherever I go I can take this with me and I'm going somewhere."
And Tiffany remembered "being in the system" for years.
She added: "I remember being in the system until I wasn't worth anything [in state funding]. When I talk to some of my comedy buddies now they'll say, 'Tiffany, you ain't never been afraid.' And I'm thinking to myself, 'Well, you obviously never knew me.'"
