Kim Kardashian is said to have begun adoption proceedings, just three months after she announced her divorce from Kris Humphries.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been open about her desire to have a large family and has previously revealed that she had hoped to have settled down by the time she was 30.
Now, at the age of 31 and without a boyfriend, Kim's dreams of starting a family appeared further away, which is why a source claims she is planning on adopting a child.
"Of the three sisters, she's the one who's been saying that she's ready for kids the longest," a source told OK! USA magazine.
"It's all top secret, but the adoption is already underway. Kim is ready. She's made inquiries and gotten information. Now she just has to decide where she wants the baby to come from."
Should Kim wait to find the right man or is adoption the right path for her?
