Jillian Michaels to Adopt Baby Girl

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Jillian Michaels, the fitness maven who gained notoriety for her seasons on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” has announced that she has been matched with a little girl from Haiti and will soon travel there to finalize the adoption process.

PEOPLE.com reports:

“I went over to visit orphanages and I ended up falling in love with this little girl, and by the grace of God, I got matched up with her.”

However, while Michaels, 37, is elated that her dream of being a mother is quickly becoming a reality, she admits it is still too soon to celebrate.

“I now have to get her home … it could take up to a year to get her home,” she says. ”Anything can happen and fall through or fall apart, so it’s kind of premature for me to say it, but that’s where it’s at.”

Should the adoption go awry, Michaels warns, “You’ll know why I’m devastated and not coming out of my house for months.”
