'Stop having babies to save the planet'

EVANGELINE Lilly thinks people have to stop having babies to save the planet.

EVANGELINE Lilly thinks people have to stop having babies to save the planet.

The actress - who has been dating her co-star Dominic Monaghan since they met on the set of US serial drama television series Lost in 2004 - believes people are procreating at an alarming rate and that they must slow down their baby-making or adopt to "protect" the Earth.

She said: "For a very long time, I have had intentions to adopt.

"We have a huge population problem on Earth.

"We're not going to protect the Earth the way we need to protect it if we don't stop making so many babies."

Despite her views on adoption, the 30-year-old beauty is desperate to experience the "gift" of pregnancy and will "allow" herself one baby of her own.

Evangeline, who plays fugitive Kate Austen in Lost, said: "I have always wanted to have a child of my own and I will always want to go through the gift that women have been given to experience that, so I hope to be a mother at some point.

"I think I can allow myself one child - and from then on, I think I would have to adopt.

"It makes sense not to add to the population problem."
