Queen Latifah is keeping her lips sealed about whether she plans to become a mother anytime soon.

At the world premiere of her new film Miracles from Heaven in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Latifah, 45, spoke to PEOPLE about whether her maternal character in the film sparked a real-life desire to be a mom.

“It is a beautiful thing,” she said with a laugh. “I was ‘mothered’ by a mom, so I know how beautiful it is. So, yeah, we’ll see what happens. I’m keeping the faith.”

When pressed about her telling E! News earlier this week that she is finally ready to adopt a child, Latifah deflected the question with her signature sense of humor.

“I got three on the way from China, one from Southern Africa. I’m supposed to pick one up around 12:30 downtown,” she quipped. “It’s gonna be a big household.”
