Carrie Ann Inaba recently opened up about her adoption plans for the future and became emotional at the thought of having children.

During her recent appearance on “The Talk,” the “Dancing With the Stars” judge admitted that she’s worried about raising a child on her own.

“I’ve always wanted to adopt since I was very young. I think about it, but I’m so frightened of it, because if you’re single, you know, can you do it? That’s my own fear for myself. It’s such an interesting concept, I want so badly to have a child. Oh, not gonna cry,” she said.

While talking with the hosts of “The Talk” (via Entertainment Tonight) Inaba said that she wants to adopt a baby who is at least two years old because she’s scared of taking care of someone with a “wobbly head.”

Meanwhile, the judge of the hit ABC dance reality TV competition also dished on her plans to undergo surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tube to prevent possible cancer. According to her, she has already discussed some of her options with her doctor.

“There are different ways of looking at it; it’s really good to just make sure you have a great relationship with your doctor,” she said.

Last month, news broke that Inaba and her fiancé, Robb Derringer, have called off their engagement. According to People, Derringer asked for Inaba’s hand in marriage in December 2016. Inaba did not directly confirm that her engagement to Derringer has been called off. But in a photo she posted on Instagram, it was revealed that she wasn’t wearing her engagement ring.

Prior to her post, Inaba also uploaded a cryptic quote on her Instagram account. She captioned it with a broken heart emoji.

Last year, Derringer confirmed their engagement to People and gushed over his then-fiancée. “I knew after our first romantic date, that if she felt for me what I felt for her, then it was something that was going to be significant and life changing and lasting. There was just a powerful and palpable sense of destiny that I couldn’t deny,” he said.
