Peter Herman decided some time later to pursue adoption to expand their family in April 2011 the couple adopted a Maia Josephine and were there for her birth only six months later August and Amaya got a new baby brother Andrew Nicholas was born two months early which makes his adoption all the more touching whether she's Olivia Benson or Mariska Hargitay this adoptive mom is a role model on and off the screen number 9 Julie Andrews this iconic star of The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins has both adopted and biological daughters in 1962 Andrews welcomed her daughter Emma with first husband Tony

tried to kill me and I'm still here when he's not playing Wolverine this Aussie actor is a doting husband and dad Jackman has been married to actress Deborah Lee Furness since May 96 they have two

Sunday and faith with Keith Urban but they remain close to their adopted children from Kidman's performance as an adoptive mom in Lyon we can see that the process has deeply inspired her life and career number six Rosie O'Donnell it's the kind of thing other people could just slide right through right this comedian and talk show icon is a mother of five daughter Vivian was born to her former partner Kelly carpenter while Vivian's four siblings are adopted unlike the other celebs on this list O'Donnell is an out lesbian and came up partly to raise awareness of same-sex adoption there are children who need families and there are loving adults capable of providing that for them O'Donnell's adopted daughter Chelsea has made headlines from her battle with mental illness and her strained relationship with her mom growing up like I never really got along with her and then when she kicked me out I was just kind of done well their bond hasn't always been the strongest they've since

off-screen Bullock has shed light on adoption an issue affecting thousands of children in America and around the world number 3 Madonna this pop icon has two biological children with actor Carlos Leon
