Mariska Hargitay may be sleep deprived, but she sure is happy. Six months after adopting daughter Amaya Josephine, the "Law & Order: SVU" star, 47, and her actor husband, Peter Hermann, have adopted a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann, reports People.
“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!'" gushes Hargitay, who is also the proud mom of 5-year-old son August. "We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right."
Amaya appears to share that opinion.
"They'll lie in the crib together, and she'll hold his hand and put her arm around him," bubbles Mariska of Andrew, who was born over the summer. "She's already so protective of him."
