Jillian Michaels adopting a baby from the Congo
"My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. So the paperwork is done, and now it's just a waiting game," says Michaels. "It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, 'Oh, we have your referral,' which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her."
In a 2010 interview with Women's Health, Michaels expressed a controversial opinion that she "couldn't handle" putting her body through the strain of pregnancy. She also said that adopting was like rescuing something - "It's like rescuing a part of yourself."
In addition to a pending baby and training on "The Biggest Loser," she has also signed on to work on the expert panel on TV's "The Doctors" and serve as a correspondent for "Dr. Phil."
