*Queen Latifah has been talking about her desire to adopt for years, and the rapper-actress may be closer than ever after a recent experience in the airport.

“I was at security going through the airport, they had to look through my bag so I had to wait for them to get it,” she recalled in an interview with PEOPLE Now. “In the meantime, I met the loveliest lady who had like three kids with her — one, a baby.”

She adds: “She was trying to get her stuff together and we’re just having a polite conversation. And I said, ‘You need me to hold that baby?’ And she’s like, ‘Would you mind?’ And I’m like, ‘Give me that baby.’ ”

Latifah, 47, held the baby before handing the infant over to the woman’s husband. But soon she came across another mother struggling with her baby, and offered her assistance again.

“I think I’m a natural at this thing,” Latifah said. “It’s just a matter of time. You’ll know. You’ll see them.”

The star said she has taken her time to “grow and mature” before taking the step into motherhood.

“I’ve always envisioned myself with a big family,” she said. “To me, it’s the most unselfish thing you could do, to be a parent. It’s not about you at all. It’s about what you can give to support this child.”

She added: “It doesn’t matter if it’s a baby or a toddler or a teenager for that matter.”
