Jillian Michaels is in the process of trying to adopt a child, after announcing she was leaving “The Biggest Loser” in December.
Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels is taking time off to focus on her dream of becoming a mother.
“I’d like to take a year off of television and really focus on “” I’m in the middle of the adoption process “” and really focus on that and hopefully becoming a mother in the next year and putting all my energy into that for awhile”, Jillian stated.
Jillian has completed the adoption paperwork and interviews and is now awaiting the big call!
“I’ve completed all of my paperwork; I’ve had all of my physicals; I’ve been checked by the FBI “” you have no idea!” Jillian jokingly said.
“That could be anywhere from six months to a year. I’m in a pilot program for the Democratic Republic of Congo so we’ll see,” she says. “Then you get your referral and then you have to try to bring your kid back home.”
Michaels doesn’t seem to care whether she adopts a boy or a girl, saying, “I’m 36! Do you hear the clock? It doesn’t matter!” she explains. “As long as there’s a little teeny person with me, I’ll be good.”
