Rosario Dawson Adopts 12-Year-Old Girl

Top Five actress is a new mom, source reveals.

Published December 3, 2014

Rosario Dawson may have something special to be thankful for this holiday season. The Top Five actress has reportedly adopted a 12-year-old girl, sources reveal to Page Six.

Dawson, who was adopted by her stepfather Greg Dawson when she was just one year old, has been vocal in the past about her plans to adopt.

“That idea has stayed in the back of my head, but lately, I’ve been thinking about it more,” Dawson told Latina in 2008. “My mother and grandmother are extraordinary women, and they’re getting older. It struck me recently that one day I might be sitting around with my children, going, ‘Your grandma was an amazing woman; I really wish you could’ve known her.’ . . . Whatever time I have, I want it.”

Congratulations to Rosario on her happy news!
