Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony are the latest celebrity couple to hop on the adoption bandwagon. It has been reported that the pair will be adopting a baby from Puerto Rico.
J.Lo has made it quite clear since her 2004 marriage that she would like to expand her family and have children. So far, however, she's had little luck. There have been reports that singer/actress had miscarriage, and is receiving IVF treatments to try to help them conceive. Jennifer has denied these claims, however.
The couple still really wants to have children, and have decided that adoption may be the answer to their prayers. They've decided that Puerto Rico would be the best place for them to look as both of their parents were born there.
A source tells the Daily Mail: "Jen and Marc are dying to have kids but it just doesnt seem to be working for them. Jen realises shes not getting any younger, so theyve jointly decided that adoption may be the answer to their prayers. Theyve had some very serious conversations about it and have decided the best place to look is Puerto Rico as Jen and Marcs parents were both born there."
For now, they are checking out the various orphanages, looking for the right one. Even with their celebrity status, it will take some time for an adoption to go through. They are also hoping that Madonna's adoption scandal will have passed by the time they are ready to adopt, as they see their adoption as a positive thing
