6. Expanding Their Family

Despite a difficult pregnancy and delivery with their son, both Hargitay and Hermann were excited to continue to expand their family, but unfortunately they faced problems becoming pregnant again. After their struggle, they decided to turn to adoption, which also proved to be a difficult and emotional process for the couple. “I’m not gonna lie,” she told Good Housekeeping in 2012. “There were wrenching moments. I say to everybody, ‘Adoption is not for the faint of heart,’” but added that it was definitely “worth the fight.” After having their hearts broken when a couple of their adoptions fell through, things changed for the family big time in 2011. In April, 2011, the pair adopted Amaya Josephine right from birth and only six months later adopted a baby boy, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann, in October who was only a few months old at the time. Hargitay explained that soon after the birth of Amaya the pair quickly refiled to adopt again anticipating there would be a wait like before, but instead they were approved immediately and received word on Andrew in no-time.  “It was a no-brainer,” Hargitay explained. “It was like…a miracle. And I don’t use that word lightly. I’ve never made a bigger decision so quickly.” “August thinks this was all his idea!” she also revealed. “He said, ‘I want a baby sister,’ and Amaya came. Then he said, ‘I want a baby brother,’ and Andrew came. August is feeling pretty good and pretty powerful!”
