Jessica Simpson wants to have a big family but fears she may not be able to cope with childbirth more than once. Jessica, who split from husband Nick Lachey in November 2005, insists she has also been inspired to adopt by Angelina Jolie - who has two adopted children, Maddox and Zahara.
She told Britain's Star magazine: "I want to adopt before I actually have my own kids. I want three kids - but I don't know if I can give birth three times. I'll have to see how much pain is involved first time round!"
She said: "I think Angelina Jolie has done amazing things. The international adoption rate has skyrocketed."
As well as wanting to adopt, Jessica also wants to "save the world".
She said: "Ever since I was a kid I said I wanted to save the world somehow, I didn't know how. I think I'll end up doing things that can touch somebody in some way that's good - like through orphanages."
