Mariska Hargitay Adopts Son, Andrew

The actress Mariska Hargitay, who stars in NBC's "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," has adopted a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann, reports.  Hargitay and her husband, Peter Hermann, adopted a daughter, Amaya Josephine, six months ago.  They had submitted their paperwork to adopt a second child, and they were pleasantly surprised to be matched so quickly with Andrew, who was born this 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!'" Hargitay told PEOPLE.

Hargitay is also mother to a five-year-old boy, August.

Celebrities Kristin Davis and Viola Davis also recently announced adoptions.
