And baby makes three ... three kids in Mariska Hargitay's family, that is. The "Law & Order: SVU" actress adopted baby son Andrew shortly after bringing home daughter Amaya, People reports. Andrew and Amaya join Hargitary and husband Peter Hermann's first child, son August.

The second adoption happened swiftly; within a week of processing the paperwork for Amaya, the couple brought home Andrew, who was born over the 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!’” said Hargitay. “We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”

Hargitay is going to continue to work on "Law & Order" four days a week.
