Queen Latifah has a maternal side!

In a new interview with E! News, the 45-year-old actress revealed she would love to become a mom in the future.

“I’m little bit of a procrastinator,” the Miracles From Heaven star admitted. “I had some things to deal with. I had to get a lot of partying out of my system early in life for about 40 years. You know what I’m saying. I’m good now. I think I’m ready.”

“Maybe I’ll adopt a child that’s not necessarily a baby. There are a lot of kids that need love out there,” she added. “I want to be there for somebody. I got to get all this stuff and give it somebody.”
