Trainer Jillian Michaels of The Biggest Loser fame is this close to reaching her goal of becoming a mommy.
Michaels left The Biggest Loser with dreams of beginning a family and she’s met the little girl she is hoping to adopt during a trip to Haiti.
“I went over to visit orphanages and I ended up falling in love with this little girl, and by the grace of God, I got matched up with her.”
While this is exciting news Jillian is well aware that the adoption process is not always a sure thing. She added:
“I now have to get her home … it could take up to a year to get her home,” she says. ”Anything can happen and fall through or fall apart, so it’s kind of premature for me to say it, but that’s where it’s at.”
Previously, Michaels had to do some damage control when she stated, “I’m going to adopt. I can’t handle doing that to my body,” when asked if she planned on having a baby. She caught a lot of heat when people misconstrued her statement as one that insinuates pregnancy ruins a woman’s body. She explained later that she suffers from endometriosis and polycystic ovaries and that fertility could be an issue for her physically.
Good luck to Jillian and her hopefully future little girl.
