AMY TO ADOPT ST. LUCIAN CHILD
AMY Winehouse wants to adopt a child in St. Lucia.
The singer is said to be desperate to give a child from the Caribbean island a home, and has vowed to settle there if it will improve her chances of success.
A source said: “Amy is seriously thinking about adopting. But she is aware it’s going to be incredibly difficult with her background.
“She has always wanted to be a mother. She loves St. Lucia and would move there for good in order to adopt.”
The 25-year-old singer reportedly looks up to Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie – who raises three adopted children as well as three biological kids with her partner Brad Pitt – and wants to help underprivileged boys and girls on the island.
Amy’s spokesman revealed: “Amy was talking about adopting in the context of looking after children on the island, perhaps through some kind of music and education-based project.”
The 25-year-old singer first travelled to St. Lucia in a bid to overcome her drug addiction.
She spent three months on the island earlier this year, before returning to the UK to begin work on her third album.
However, she decided to fly back to St. Lucia after finding the lure of London parties too great and is now said to be considering making the idyllic island her permanent base.
Amy is said to have become even more determined to give a child a home after discovering her estranged husband Blake Fielder Civil – who has filed for divorce, claiming Amy had been unfaithful – is reportedly expecting a child with a woman he met in rehab.
