According to Star Magazine and an insider source that they have, Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson are ready to adopt a baby! And according to the reports, they’re choosing to adopt from either Ghana or Ethiopia. Why not? It seems to be the trendy thing to do these days. The report originally came from Star,
“Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds will be hearing the pitter patter of little feet!
In the June 21 issue of Star, on sale now, we report that the couple, who married in 2008, are planning to adopt a baby from Africa.
“Scarlett has always wanted to adopt from outside the U.S.,” an insider tells Star. “She feels now is finally the right time.”
Ryan, whose older brother is adopted, and Scarlett are already working with a U.S.-based adoption agency, reveals a source, and they’ve narrowed the search to Ghana or Ethiopia – the same country where Scarlett’s mom, Melanie, recently adopted a baby girl!
“It’s an exciting time for them!” adds the insider.”
Every time I hear about this, especially within the past few years, I can’t help but wonder what’s wrong with adopting a baby in need that lives right in the United States? Or from Canada, which is where Ryan is from? Now, don’t get all on my back about me hating all the babies overseas. I don’t. And I do think it’s great that stars are wanting to give underprivileged children a second chance. I just don’t know why so many people overlook the underprivileged children right in their own country.
And does anybody else think it’s weird that Scarlett’s mom has just adopted a baby? Scarlett and her twin brother are both 25 and are her mom and dad’s youngest children. Aren’t these the years that her mom is supposed to enjoying her life without having to take care of kids. Hey, more power to her. I just think it’s odd, that’s all. And congratulations to Scarlett and Ryan too! Even though I’d like to see more stars starting to adopt from their own country, I am happy for them, and realize the good work they’re doing taking any child out of a bad situation to bring them into a better one.
