Renée to adopt
13:30 11 October 2005
Renée Zellweger reportedly wants to adopt an orphaned baby, just days after her ex Jack White announced he is expecting his first child.
The Hollywood beauty is desperate to have children despite being single, since splitting from husband Kenny Chesney last month.
The 'Bridget Jones' actress is said to be planning to join Angelina Jolie, who has two adopted children, on her next trip to Ethiopia - where there are five million orphans.
A source at the country's state-run adoption agency said: "Renée still has to meet the same ten conditions as everybody else.
"The main two are that she's financially secure and law-abiding."
Jack White's announced his impending fatherhood less than a month after Renée's marriage to country singer Kenny Chesney ended.
Renée and Kenny shocked fans when they announced they had wed on May 9 in a sunset ceremony in the Virgin Islands.
But just four months later their marriage was annulled, with the 'Bridget Jones' star citing 'fraud' as the reason for their split.
The White Stripes frontman and British model Karen Elson made announced the pregnancy to their family last weekend, in Michigan.
White secretly wed Elson in a canoe on the Amazon in June, just four months after he split from Renée.
