Mariska Hargitay Adopts a Baby Girl!

Mariska Hargitay and her husband Peter Hermann have adopted a baby girl, Amaya Josephine, JustJared.com can confirm.

The 47-year-old Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress told People that she is “deliriously happy. From the minute she was born, she was just surprisingly alert and so full of love.”

Amaya was born just a week ago and in the United States!

“We were considering both international and domestic adoption and we’re thrilled that this is the way our prayers were answered,” Mariska added. “We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We’re just so happy she’s here.”

Mariska and Peter have a 4-year-old son August, who is “over the moon” about Amaya.

Congrats to the happy family!
