‘Law and Order’ Star Mariska Hargitay Adopts Another Child

19 Oct

When Mariska Hargitay welcomed her daughter Amaya Josephine six months ago, she started thinking about adopting another child down the line.
She never imagined the new addition would be right around the corner.
Within a week of processing their paperwork for the second time, Hargitay, 47, and her husband Peter Hermann brought home a son, Andrew Nicolas Hargitay Hermann, 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!’” says Hargitay, who is also mom to son August, 5.
“We knew this was our guy. Everything about it felt right. It felt divinely right.”

Two babies may be a handful, but the Law & Order: SVU actress — who will continue working four days a week — says Andrew and Amaya have already bonded.
“They’ll lie in the crib together, and she’ll hold his hand and put her arm around him,” says Hargitay. “She’s already so protective of him.”
Aww they’re adorable. Congrats to the couple and giving to beautiful children a loving home.

’16 & PREGNANT’ COUPLE Allowed to See Their Kid Again … Under Supervision

13 Oct
The “16 & Pregnant” couple who had their daughter taken away by authorities last month because their house was covered in feces, finally saw their kid again this week and TMZ obtained pics of the happy 4-hour reunion.
As we previously reported, the Department of Human Services in Arkansas took away Joshua and Ebony Rendon‘s 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn after discovering the couple’s deplorable feces-smeared living conditions and police then arrested them for child endangerment.

But the couple has since cleaned up their act and in return, DHS has awarded them visitation of their daughter twice a week for two hours at a time with a supervisor.

Sources close to the couple say, E & J are serious about regaining full custody of their girl and to prove they mean business .. they’ve enrolled in parenting classes and therapy.
A court date has been set for November 10th to decide if they’ll get their daughter back.
Good to see them trying to turn their life around and become better parents.

Fantasia Calls into The Wendy Williams Show, Announces Is Expecting a Boy

12 Oct

Fantasia Barrino has revealed the sex of her baby – and that she’s due Dec. 29. 

“I’m having a boy. I’m at home, I’m on bed rest right now,” she said Tuesday in a phone interview on The Wendy Williams Show.

Barrino – already mother to a daughter Zion, 9 – still has not spoken about the baby’s father, but the singer has most recently been romantically linked to Antwaun Cook. Their relationship made headlines last summer after his divorce from Paula Cook was linked to his affair with Barrino, 27. 

“I’m not gonna talk about that,” she told Williams when pushed to discuss any relationship with Cook. 

Williams asked the question after reports surfaced that family members of the late gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, whom Barrino was set to play in a upcoming biopic, were angry with Barrino because she is allegedly pregnant with a married man’s baby. 

“I almost went into labor, because it was the first time that I’ve heard anything about that,” Barrino said of hearing the report. “Haven’t spoken to the family yet, haven’t heard anything from the family, so that was my first time hearing anything about it.” 

Barrino does respond to one rumor, however: That she caused trouble for the film because she neglected to tell producers she was pregnant. 

“There were no contracts signed, and there was no set date and time,” she says of possibly starring in the film. She also says she hasn’t heard from the producers recently, but that she had studied Jackson’s life and her singing in order to work on her portrayal. 

“I began to gain the weight, I began to study her,” Barrino said. “And then they called us back in January and said the investors had backed out. So they were waiting on investors.” 

She added, “I wanted to make the family proud, and most of all, I wanted to make Mahalia Jackson proud – and my fans and everyone who’s been following me.”
