Former star of The Biggest Loser and everyone's favourite 30-Day-Shred drill sergeant, Jillian Michaels (37), is on her way to becoming a mama. According to Us Weekly, she's adopting a child from the Congo.

"My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo," she told Us.

"So the paperwork is done," she continued, "and now it’s just a waiting game. It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, 'Oh, we have your referral,' which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her."

Back in December Jillian told CNN that she was leaving The Biggest Loser to focus on becoming a mom. Look out for her new gigs as co-host on The Doctors and as special correspondent on Dr. Phil.

Good luck, Jillian!
