Queen Latifah‘s next role in life could be a mom.

During an interview with E! Online on Tuesday (March 8), the 45-year-old MC-turned-actress discussed the possibility of becoming a mother at her age.

“I’m a little bit of a procrastinator,” Latifah admitted to E! while promoting her new movie Miracles from Heaven. “I had some things to deal with. I had to get a lot of partying out of my system early in life for about 40 years. You know what I’m saying. I’m good now. I think I’m ready.”

But Latifah is definitely keeping her options open when it comes to motherhood.

“You’ll see when I’m lugging the baby on the hip that there is actually a youngin around here,” brainstormed Latifah. “…maybe I’ll adopt a child that’s not necessarily a baby. There are a lot of kids that need love out there. I want to be there for somebody. I got to get all this stuff and give it somebody.”

Latifah has made an entire career out of changing lanes with grace. The New Jersey native was formally introduced to the rap world with her 1989 debut album All Hail The Queen. Throughout her career, Queen has dropped music, starred on the big and small screen (Living Single, Set It Off, Hairspray, The Wiz Live!) and won accolades for her roles in the 2015 HBO television movie Bessie.
