single women shouldn't be afraid of adopting children
Sharon Stone has urged wannabe mums to adopt children instead of just waiting around for Mr Right.
Sharon, who has adopted three boys, told Now magazine: "I'd urge anyone who is even considering it to go ahead and make their own family, instead of sitting around dreaming and hoping that their Prince Charming is going to come and give them children.
"What's the point? Make it happen for yourself. If your Prince Charming does come, then he's going to walk in and say, 'Oh, just what I've been looking for, a family waiting for me.' We can do that these days."
Sharon also revealed that she didn't intend to adopt her second and third children so close together - she waited until oldest son Roan was four before adopting second son Laird, but then just a year before she adopted Quinn last summer.
"I hadn't really planned on adopting the last two so close together.
In fact, it was a challenging decision to take Quinn so soon after Laird.
I'm really just trying to make sure one of them doesn't smash up the other
