Mariska Hargitay's brood grew fast in 2011. With husband Peter Hermann and son August, the "Law & Order: SVU" actress welcomed Amaya in April and Andrew in October. The new additions came after a long, arduous process that included a birth mother changing her mind two days after they brought home the baby. "It was nothing short of devastating," Hargitay told Good Housekeeping. "But … it was probably the greatest, happiest ending. I mean, it was so painful for us, but it was deeply joyful and deeply right for her." According to Mariska, "Adoption is not for the faint of heart. … [It] was a bumpy ride -- very bumpy. But, God, was it worth the fight."
