mariska hargitay peter hermann Mariska Hargitay adopts second child in six monthsJust six months after welcoming daughter Amaya Josephine to her family, “Law & Order: SVU” actress Mariska Hargitay brought home a new son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann, reports People magazine.

Hargitay and husband Peter Hermann were surprised that the adoption happened so soon after starting the process for the second time, but are obviously over the moon about adding Andrew, who was born over the summer, to their family.

“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 tells People.

“We knew this was our guy,” she adds. “Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”

In addition to the two babies, Hargitay also has a five-year-old son, August.
