Amanda Knox wants to adopt after prison

Amanda Knox has opened her heart to an Italian politician by revealing her dreams to become a mum

Amanda Knox is continuing to cause shockwaves around the world following a recent confession about wanting to adopt a child after completing her 26-year-prison sentence.

The attractive American student recently opened her heart to an Italian politician explaining how she wanted to become a mum and a writer as soon as she is released.

Italy’s most notorious prisoner made her revelation during a meeting with Rocco Girlanda, an Umbrian politician who has visited her a number of times since Knox was imprisoned in Perugia.

He has admitted to keeping a diary of their conversations, which forms the basis of a 240-page book, ‘Take Me With You – Talks with Amanda Knox in Prison’, published in Italy and the US this autumn.

Knox, 23, was convicted last December of the murder and sexual assault of British student Meredith Kercher. She maintains her innocence and her appeal is set to begin on 24 November.
