Actor Jackie Earle Haley, aged 54, and his third wife Amelia Cruz might be thinking of adopting children, according to recent rumors.
A source close to the couple has all the necessary details about their plans to adopt kids. The insider, who claimed to be quite close to the Academy Award nominee actor and his wife, spilled the beans on why and how the couple was planning to adopt children and how many were they planning to adopt as well.
The American film actor, who is best known for his role as the pedophile Ronnie McGorvey in Little Children, already has two children from his previous marriages. And according to the insider, Haley’s third wife Cruz, who is does not have child of her own, wants to adopt two children.
“Jackie and Amelia might be adopting children in near future. They have not started any procedure yet, but as far as I know, they will be taking legal guardianship of two orphaned children sometime in the future,” said the informer.
They further added: “Jackie already has two children from his second marriage and Christopher even lives with the couple, but she is not happy with that. She wants to have children of her own – ones who would take her name. But unfortunately, due to some reasons, Jackie and Amelia are not able to have children of their own. So, for his wife’s happiness, he accepted the decision of adopting children.
“Amelia wants to adopt kids, but that does not mean that she hates her step children. She totally adores them and she is quite supportive as well. But Chris is already an adult. He is all grown up and she wants children who are below 5 – ones whom she can nurture, love and care for,” the source further explained.
The gossip monger also added that the loving pair might start the procedure of adopting kids pretty soon. They said that Haley and his better half were already visiting orphanages and looking for suitable children.
So, if the information given by the informant is actually true, then we wish the couple all the best for their future and hope they find suitable babies for adoption.
