Kim Kardashian already has a bun in the oven — the reality star is expecting her first child with rap star boyfriend Kanye West this July — but as soon as we saw photos of Kim at an orphanage in the African country Cote d’Ivoire in mid-January, we couldn’t help but wonder: Would Kim ever adopt a child from Africa?

“One of the highlights of the trip was visiting an orphanage, where I met some of the sweetest children ever!” she wrote in her blog on January 22. “It really puts things into perspective seeing how positive, friendly and fun these kids are despite being their circumstances.“

Two days later, Kim posted an entire slideshow of photos from the visit. She gushed that it was “a magical experience” and that the children there were “the sweetest kids.”

Admittedly, adoption wouldn’t be the most practical choice right now. Kim is just months away from giving birth, and she already knows that motherhood will be a big adjustment. For a first-time mother like Kim, can you imagine the responsibility of having to take care of not one, but two little babies? It would be a challenge.

But Kim is a celebrity. And don’t all celebrities harbor an innate desire to adopt children from far-off lands, and then dress them up in fabulous designer fashions — the cute, mini versions, that is?

If Kim wants to stay in the spotlight, adopting a child from Africa certainly wouldn’t hurt. Plus, Kim seemed to genuinely adore all the kids she met during her Cote d’Ivoire travels.

But does that mean she plans to adopt? Probably not. Kim made no mention of wanting to take home one of the children as her own. Well not yet, at least.

We’re sure there are plenty more seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians coming. If ratings drop, Kim adopting a baby would certainly make for some interesting TV.
