Jillian Michaels in Process of Adopting Baby Girl

ADRIAN SANCHEZ-GONZALEZ/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Former The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is reportedly in the process of adopting a baby from Haiti.

The fitness celebrity announced in 2010 that she wanted to focus on starting a family and now she tells Access Hollywood Live, “I’ve been matched with a baby girl.”

Michaels is holding off on any celebrations for now, fearing that it could take up to a year to bring the baby home. “Anything could happen,” she says, “so it’s kind of premature for me to say but that’s where it’s at.”

Michaels warns that if the adoption falls through she probably won’t be seen outside of her house for months because she'll be devastated.

Jillian Michaels Wants to Adopt Baby from the Congo

Jason Kempin/WireImage for The Association of Magazine Media(LOS ANGELES) -- Former Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is looking to adopt a baby from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  The 37-year-old announced that she was ending her contract with the NBC reality show in December, and she recently filed the paperwork needed to start her family.

Michaels told, "So the paperwork is done, and now it's just a waiting game."  She added, 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."

In the meantime, Michaels is joining the expert panel of the CBS talk show The Doctors, and says she "couldn't be more excited." Michaels will also serve as a correspondent for Dr. Phil on his show.
