Mariska Hargitay Adoption

This is the second child Mariska has adopted within a year!

Law & Order: SVU actress Mariska Hargitay adopted her daughter Amaya Josephine six months ago, and now she’s welcomed a home a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitary Hermann!

Mariska and her husband, Peter Hermann, were able to bring Andrew home within a week of processing their paperwork, according to People.

The actress couldn’t hide her joy: “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!'”

According to Mariska, Andrew, who was born over the summer, has already bonded with sister Amaya. “They’ll lie in the crib together, and she’ll hold his hand and put her arm around him,” she said. “She’s already so protective of him.”

Two babies — plus their older brother August — might be a lot to handle, but Mariska is ready. “We knew this was our guy,” she said. “Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”
