Mariska Hargitay is a mom again.

The Emmy-winning Law & Order: SVU star and her actor husband, Peter Hermann, have adopted a baby girl, People reported.

The girl, Amaya Josephine, was born a week ago; she's from the United States.

"We were considering both international and domestic adoption, and we're thrilled that this is the way our prayers were answered," Hargitay, 47, said. "We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We're just so happy she's here."

The couple already has a 4-year-old son, August.
