Michael Jackson's sister La Toya is keen to join the ranks of Angelina Jolie, Sheryl Crow and Katherine Heigl by adopting a child.

The 56 year old, who has been mostly single since divorcing her husband Jack Gordon in 1997, has revealed she is interested in becoming a single mother.

She tells news show Entertainment Tonight, "I've gone through the process of seeing the kids and seeing what I wanna do... and then I started babysitting kids to see if this is truly what I want."
