London: Pop star Lady Gaga, who recently visited India to perform on the closing day of the inaugural Grand Prix, is reportedly planning to adopt three kids from an Indian orphanage.

The 25-year-old has told her friends she wants to follow Angelina Jolie's lead by adopting children from around the world, reported a daily.

"She's always wanted to adopt, ever since she was a little girl. She tells friends she feels she was put on this planet for a reason and since achieving fame she sees it as a sign that she has to give back the good fortune she's received.

"She's already set up her Born This Way Foundation in India and visited two orphanages while she was there last time. The plan is to adopt three Indian orphans before adopting more from around the world. She wants at least on American child, too," a source said.

The 'Born This Way' hitmaker is also said to have told her friends that there are children in need in the US as well.

"She's not being one of those celebrities who get sucked into third world adoptions only to forget about her own country," the source added.
