In White Folks With Black Kids News: Mariska Hargitay Says Baby Amaya “Soothes Her Heart” And Little August Loves Being A Big Brother

- By Bossip Staff

Life just isn’t complete without a precious little chocolate baby!

We’re so happy to hear that the adoption of little Amaya has gone well for Mariska Hargitay and her family. The actress gushed about her family’s newest addition recently:

“It’s very soothing to the heart,” Mariska Hargitay told PEOPLE Wednesday at the Good Shepherd Services Spring Gala in New York. “I feel like she really completed our little family of four.”

“You never know what you’re going to get with the second baby and so I was sort of nervous about it,” the Law & Order: SVU star, 47, laughs. “She’s so zen and so peaceful. I can’t quite believe how easy she’s been — her disposition.”

“She’s not fussy, she doesn’t cry much … she’s just very peaceful,” adds Hargitay. “I feed her, she sleeps. It’s pure magic. I feel very blessed.”

Big brother August, 4½, is especially helpful and enjoys assisting Mom with Amaya’s bottles.

“Today I actually took [Amaya] to pick him up from school,” Hargitay shares. “He was very excited when he introduced her to all of his classmates. It’s very sweet, he’s very proud of her.”

Aw, what sweet swirly family preciousness!!! We’re gonna hope for Mariska’s sake that Amaya stays zen, cuz we have a feeling that future hair combing might be a little … trying … for both Amaya and her Mommy.

    As long as this child has a stable home environment who really cares what the parental race is? I don’t see black people knocking down doors to adopt black children. The same people who complain about whites adopting black children are the same one’s refusing to provide a home for black children.

    LMBOOOOOO @ Allergic! I never thought about that!

  • YouMadHuh?!

    Love this! I think its absolutely beautiful!!! Who cares about skin color

  • The Way It Is

    if the child is treated right and happy, what’s the problem ?

  • Coo

    Because they’re the infants that are available. If black folks were lining up in droves to adopt them you wouldn’t have to trouble your little mind with this problem.

  • Know what you speak of

    @Gat Turner…at some point we as blacks need to stop blaming the white man for shyt and start doing right by ourselves…like maybe being responsible when it comes to reproduction, so white people don’t have to step in and take our kids and give them the good healthy family that every child deserves….and yes they can give the black child the knowledge they need to survive as a black adult. I think you have no idea what your blogging about..I was adopted by white parents, and I’ve never had an identity crisis, what so ever.

  • I'mJustSayin

    @GAT TURNER–So…that baby would learn more about her black roots by being tossed around from foster home to foster home (having mostly white foster parents)? Dealing with the struggle of never having a stable home/family life or security? Giving her little hope for success in the real world…and probably ending up continuing the cycle with her own children? Riiighht….THAT would help her love herself & her roots. smdh think about wtf you type up before you hit “submit”. That baby girl will love who she is because she’ll be raised by a woman who will teach her to do so. Don’t you think the woman is educated enough to know the difference between what is taught in the history books vs what’s true? Don’t you think she’s smart enough not to have made the choice to become a mother on impulse?–You just made YOURSELF look ignorant as h3ll & it’s truly sad that you’re so small minded that you think the shade of someone’s skin dictates their ability to teach their child about who they are & where they came from.

  • Wishyouthebest!

    A FULL and interesting life is a multi-color experience. I can’t imagine going my whole life not having met people of different races and cultures. Everybody has something to bring to the table.
    FYI~ I’m Black Black & trying to adopt a Black child and it’s not as easy as you think. They really put you thru hoops.
