Mariska Hargitay Adopts Two Infants Within Six Months

According to People magazine, Mariska Hargitay has adopted another baby, just six months after adopting her second child Amaya Josephine. She knew she wanted to adopt another child one day, but didn't expect it would be so soon.

“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. “We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”

Within only a week of processing their paperwork Mariska and her husband Peter Hermann brought home a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann. Mariska is now mother to two adopted children as well as her biological son August who is five.

Having two infants at the same time seems like a heck of a lot of work, but there is now doubt that the tough cookie who plays Olivia Benson on Law & Order: SVU, will be able to handle it.

The mama of three has said Andrew and Amaya have already formed a strong bond. “They’ll lie in the crib together, and she’ll hold his hand and put her arm around him, she’s already so protective of him.” Aww!! We wish her, and her growing family all the best.
