Mariska Hargitay Adoption Was "Very Quick", Still in Shock


BBC-028277-200x300Mariska Hargitay adopted a baby boy, Andrew Nicolas, very quickly!

“It was all very quick. It was a week that changed our lives,” Hargitay — whose celebrity status was not revealed in her paperwork — notes.

“We’re still in shock. What did we do to get so lucky?”

Everything happened so quickly in fact that the actress didn’t have any boy clothes!

“It was so hilarious. My godson was born eight months ago and I gave all of [5-year-old son] August‘s things to them,” she told People magazine.

“We came home with our baby and almost nothing. Friends are coming over with onesies.”

The process to adopt their six-month-old daughter Amaya took a year so she and hubby Peter Hermann started the process early for their third child.

They filed again over the summer and were shocked to find out that their application went through days later.

The Law & Order: SVU star, 47,   rearranged her office to make space for baby Andrew.

“We’re getting all squared away and settled,” the actress says. “I’m so happy he’s home.”
