Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay welcomed her second child in just six months, according to a new report. These things are possible when you adopt!

With daughter Amaya Josephine arriving just six months ago, she started thinking about adopting again down the line. Turns out not very far down the line.

Within a week of processing paperwork a second time, Hargitay, 47, and husband Peter Hermann brought home a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann.

“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.

The newest addition to her family was born August 5.

“We knew this was our guy. Everything felt right. It felt divinely right,” says mom, who's working four days a week, and adds that her kids are already bonding.

“They’ll lie in the crib together, and she’ll hold his hand and put her arm around him,” says Hargitay. “It's wonderful. She’s already so protective of him.”

Congratulations to the whole family!

Actually if you read it, it says "Second child in 6 months" meaning there are two children in 6 months.


Uhm, this article is incorrect. This is their third child. August was born in 2006, they adopted Amaya this year, and now they've adopted Andrew. Everyone is in such a rush, they forget to fact-check. *shakes head*
