Just six months ago Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay adopted daughter Amaya Josephine, and has learned the actress has already welcomed another child to her family.

Mariska, 47, and husband Peter Hermann, just adopted a boy named Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Herman. (He was born just three months after his new sister Amaya).

“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!’” Mariska told People magazine. “We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”

Mariska and Peter’s family now includes 5-year-old August, Amaya and Andrew.

“They’ll lie in the crib together, and she’ll hold his hand and put her arm around him,” she said of Amaya and Andrew. “She’s already so protective of him.”
