It’s only semi-secret that the next season of Millionaire Matchmaker is flipping the tables on me and my team is setting me up on dates to find my perfect mate. I want to focus on me. I want to have a family. You guys are the first to know: I have a new boyfriend, and we’ve discussed the adoption. It’s a possibility. It’s not 100 percent. Nothing is 100 percent.
Why I want to adopt
As any adoptive parents already know, this is going to be a process for me and it won’t happen overnight. I have to investigate it. I have lawyers I’m checking into.
And adoption itself hits very close to home for me. I’m adopted myself, and I don’t like the fact that I never knew my biological parents. My sister did. She was lucky. Nobody will tell me anything, so we are working with a private investigator on Millionaire Matchmaker Season 6 and I’m searching.
About the sex: I would especially love to have a son. Not that I wouldn’t love a girl to dress up, but I would especially love to have a son so I can teach him how to be a gentlemen. But of course, the most important thing to me is to have a healthy child.
Another biggie: I want someone to leave my business to — my legacy, if you will. That’s one of the main reasons I want to have a child. If I got lucky and had a daughter who loved this business as much as I do, that would be great.
People are always asking mothers, “How do you manage a busy life and being a mom?” I’m a juggler. I’m a double Gemini. I’m not saying I won’t have a nanny, but I’ll make it work just like any other working mom. I get shit done. Everyone who knows me knows that.
This is also why I’ve never wanted to adopt alone — so when I did leave, my husband would be there with our kid. I think it’s important they go to school and they nourish their hobbies and interests. They should have balance and routine. Now that I have a man in my life and we’ve unofficially put the idea on the table, I’m excited for the possibility. Like I said, nothing is 100 percent.
I’ve also said that I want to adopt from the states. I have nothing against Angelina and Madonna . My hat is off to them. They have inspired me to adopt every day. I’m really in awe of them. I just feel an affinity for a child who is starting to understand the world without a mom or a dad. It breaks my heart. There are so many children in America who don’t have homes because they’re not babies. Once they get to ages 3 and up, nobody wants them.
I’d love to have a big family but I don’t know if it’s possible at my age. David, the man in my life, would make me a step mom… I love that.
