Mariska Hargitay Adopts Her Second Child
Posted by Adam
MARISKA Hargitay is a mother again!
The actress — who welcomed adopted daughter Amaya Josephine six months ago — has adopted her second child!
Within a week of processing their paperwork for the second time, Hargitay, 47, and her husband Peter Hermann brought home a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann, who was born over the summer.
“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.”
The Law & Order: SVU star says Andrew and Amaya have already bonded.
“They’ll lie in the crib together, and she’ll hold his hand and put her arm around him,” says Hargitay. “She’s already so protective of him.”
