These folks have a pretty extreme case of baby fever! Mariska Hargitay just brought home her lil chocolate bundle of joy six months ago and now she and her hubby Peter Hermann have adopted another baby, adding a newborn son to their brood, which also includes biological son August, who is five.
According to PEOPLE.com:
When Mariska Hargitay welcomed her daughter Amaya Josephine six months ago, she started thinking about adopting another child down the line.
She never imagined the new addition would be right around the corner.
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.”
Two babies may be a handful, but the Law & Order: SVU actress — who will continue working four days a week — 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.”
Congratulations to their family! That’s so sweet that Amaya is already looking out for her little bro…
