Mariska Hargitay Adopts Baby Boy

Mariska Hargitay and her husband, Peter Hermann, have adopted a son named Andrew!

The 47-year-old Law & Order: SVU actress and her hubby adopted a daughter, Amaya, six months ago and told People that they didn’t expect to add a member to the family so quickly.

“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!’” she said, adding, “We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”

Mariska and Peter are also parents to a 5-year-old son named August.

Congratulations to the happy family!!

    Congrats on the ever growing family! As long as they can love and take care of them I say adopt as many as you want/can, One less child in need of a family and home.

    :aTanya, don’t worry about the double post because waht you said could be said twice.

    I won’t comment because I jsut agree with you and everyone else. I’ll just end up repeating waht you said.

    Best to this family and those kids. Marriage and family are NOT overated. If one wants, two people that is, amrraige and family CAN work.

    Seems like they are adopting domestically. Foreign adoption can take a lot longer. Perhaps that is a factor in why it took them such a short amount of time. Plus, do we know how long it took with Amaya?

    Congratulations to this wonderful family. Mariska is a beautiful woman, inside and out, and will be a great mother. I Noticed That VAST Majority of the comments (this news generated over 250 comments on the People) are positive. Negative comments from people unable to see the grandeur of an act of adoption. I to not know why people bother with money from celebrities. Imagine if Mariska was not the altruistic and generous. Thankfully, she’s rich. Only in this way Can she keep his foundation has Given much help to the Victims of sexual abuse and domestic Can Adopt children who need a home. God bless you Mariska. You’re a beautiful woman, talented, loved by Thousands of fans and has a pure heart and sweet.
