Scarlett Johansson & Ryan Reynolds To Adopt

Scarlett Johansson & Ryan Reynolds To Adopt

Scarlett Johansson and her new husband Ryan Reynolds will be turning to adoption at some point.

Ryan tells UK’s Glamour magazine, “My oldest brother is adopted and I have every intention of adopting at some time. I’m very grateful for having my brother in my life. I couldn’t be more pro-adoption. There are plenty of kids in the world that need it.”

As for his beauty and brains, Ryan shared, “I have my father’s face and body, but my mother’s unshakeable thirst for knowledge. She works part-time jobs, but basically she’s been a student her whole life. She still goes to university and she’s in her 60s.”

DO YOU THINK Scarlett and Ryan should adopt a BOY or GIRL?

    Although adoption is a very beautiful thing, I agree those two would make some gorgeous little ones!

    Yay for them! Good for a couple being socially responsible. Too many children in this world need homes already, why bring more in? Although I must say, when I read the title, I was hoping they were already in the process of adopting, not “at some point”.

    I agree that adoption is great but I hope you’re not saying that people who want biological kids and don’t want to adopt are socially irresponsible, #3.

    So basically, they want some good publicity now for possibly doing something positive in the distant future. Also, pro-adoption is a funny term. Is anybody against adoption?

    We don’t care : a boy or a girl.
    They will love a baby and that is the most important.

    good of her 2 adopt but i still think if their relationship goes that far that they will probably have a kid judging from what ryan says

    What kind of question is that Jared. Shouldn’t matter to anyone if they choose a girl or boy. She’s young, she might want to see if the marriage lasts a couple more years before she adopts; just saying, not dictating lol.

    @ck_always: For sure, super cute babies! But it’s really a nice option, in a world like ours, the one to adopt. Congrats for him to think like that. Maybe they have biological kids too. One thing doesn’t eliminate the other, right? They can have it all. :)

    Why are they announcing to the world about their future possible plans for adoption? Definitely sounds like for publicity purposes. It’s sickening that people would exploit the idea of adoption for fame.

    @mb: You’d be surprised! I know many “religious” people – a few in my own family, unfortunately – that frown upon adoption. They feel that those children were “thrown away” for a reason. They feel: “Why would I want someone else’s castaway when I can have my own “perfect” child?” Disgusting.

    Good for these two. I’d love to see more people step up and adopt. Whether locally or internationally. A child is a child…every single one of them needs love in their life.

    I applaud any celebrity who brings awareness to a good cause. Whether PR purposes or not. High-profile people can bring attention to things better than any advertising. Good for them in raising this issue so publicly.

    Blobbie Says:

    I hope they realise that adopted kids are actually never going to be legally theirs (on paper, yes, but not in their hearts as is the case with any adoptive kid) and if they had their own, then they would form more of a “bond” with this child, rather than the adopted one. Hugh Jackman and his fugly wife are good examples of this – it has been said that Ava, (the ugly korean kid they happened to draw ballot papers for) is not as popular with them as she would like.

    Neither. The marriage will last less than 5 years.

    They should make their own baby…

    Kudos to Scarlett and Ryan for drawing attention to the importance of adoption. And to the ignorant person who said someone could never love an adopted kid like their own, you don’t know what you are talking about. My friends with adopted kids love their kids as much as I love mine. Their kids even seem to act and look like them, I have to remind myself that they are adopted. Good luck to Scarlett and Ryan and I hope they have many children adopted and biological, they seem to be beautiful inside as well as out.

    I’m all for adoption. Better to adopt children already existing and unwanted in the world than to create new ones. This planet is overpopulated as it is. But rather than snatching babies from other countries and cultures they could adopt an older american child that doesn’t have the benefit of a loving family.

    Woah ryan seems really smart…kinda intimidating to be with a guy like him…i wonder how scarlett handles it..

    they should adopt a boy and then have a baby girl because she would be cute as scarlett was when she was a kid.

    @Blobbie: Thats a really terrible thing to say, you don’t even know that family. My brother and I are adopted and we’ve always known, I have no desire to meet my birth parents, the people who raised me ARE my parents, my only parents as far as I’m concerned. (And btw, “legally” and “in their hearts” are two completely different things, although I am both to my parents)
