Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger is finally ready to become a mother! Find out what she has to say about her adoption plans -- and why it's so important that she adopt.
Patti Stanger isn't done playing Millionaire Matchmaker to her stable of clients — not by a long shot — but she is concentrating on her own life these days, too. The big news? She has a boyfriend — and they're talking adoption!
While many celebrities adopt babies — actress Charlize Theron and trainer Jillian Michaels are two recent examples — they many times don't have a history with the process. Patti does.
"I’m adopted myself, and I don’t like the fact that I never knew my biological parents. My sister did," the dark-haired beauty admitted. "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."
How heartbreaking. Still, we have to give Patti kudos for wanting to give a child the same opportunities she had through adoption. As for the sex of her potential future child?
"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," she added. "But of course, the most important thing to me is to have a healthy child."
Patti added that she wants to leave her business to her family and hopes her future child or children want to continue the work she does as a Matchmaker. She just doesn't want to raise a child alone.
"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 s*** done. Everyone who knows me knows that," she wrote.
"This is also why I’ve never wanted to adopt alone — so when I did leave, my husband would be there with our kid," Patti added. "I’ve also said that I want to adopt from the states. 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 three and up, nobody wants them."
However, all is not lost if she gets married to her guy and they don't adopt because he already has children. "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," she revealed.
