Los Angeles: Supermodel Tyra Banks says she always wanted to become a mother and would not mind adopting.

"I will have children, whether they come out of me or come to me. I`m open to (adopting). I`m definitely open," Banks told Access Hollywood.

She, 39, also revealed that she wanted to become a mother since she was 9-year-old.

"Since I was 9-years old, I`d be like, `Mommy! I want a baby, but it don`t have to be my baby and I can take it from over there and I can raise the baby," she said.

Banks is not in a serious relationship but "is dating" someone.
