The Queen is ready for an heir.

During a chat with the ladies of The View Wednesday, Queen Latifah, 42, revealed she's considering starting a family of her own through adoption.

When co-host Barbara Walters asked the Joyful Noise actress if she would ever adopt, Latifah told Walters, "I'm actually kind of working on that."

Added the currently single rapper, "I think I saw one of those specials . . . you know those movies of the week. And it was like -- I just always wanted to bring a child home."

Still not satisfied with Latifah's response, Walters pressed her for more info.

"So are you really seriously planning on adopting?" Walters asked.

"I'm totally serious," Latifah said, adding jokingly, "So if you got a kid that you don't . . . Just give me a year -- let me set up camp and send me the kid! But no, no, totally."
