It wasn't too long ago that the Law & Order: SVU starlet welcomed an adopted daughter, Amaya Josephine to the family...actually, it was only six months ago and now she's welcomed another baby.
47-year-old Mariska Hargitay and husband Peter Hermann adopted a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann not to long ago. Their new son was born over the summer and the couple claims they never imagined to adopt again so quickly, it just happened.
Hargitay claims they had discussed adopting sometime down the line but within a week of processing their paperwork for the second time, they were able to bring home a son. Lucky for them. Most people have to wait years to just process paperwork.
“We never in a million years thought it would happen this quickly, but something inside of us knew that this was right, and we said, ‘Yes, yes, yes!’” says Hargitay, who is also mom to son August, 5.
“We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”
Hagritay plans on continuing to work four days a week on the NBC hit show.
I've always been of fan of hers & I'm really happy that these kids were able to be adopted by her but it's just sad to see that people with money can basically buy a baby faster than other people. What can I say, the system really sucks.
Congratulations to the happy family.
