Mariska Hargitay adopts a baby girl

People is reporting that Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay and her husband, actor Peter Hermann, have adopted a baby girl. Amaya Josephine was born in the U.S. roughly a week ago. “We were considering both international and domestic adoption,” says the actress, 47. “And we’re thrilled that this is the way our prayers were answered. We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We’re just so happy she’s here.” Hargitay and Hermann have a 4-year-old son, August.
