Rosario Dawson Is Officially a Mom -- Surprise!

rosario dawsonCelebrity birth and adoption announcements seem to be fairly run-of-the-mill, so it's not often that Hollywood A-listers expand their families without a public statement. But Rosario Dawson has done just that, because news reports are coming out that the actress is rumored to have adopted a 12-year-old girl over two months ago.


A source tells Page Six that Dawson adopted the tween girl in October, but her rep has yet to comment on the rumors.

But while the news is surely a surprise, Dawson has long been vocal about her plans to adopt (she was also adopted by her stepfather when she turned 1). She even told Latina magazine in 2008:

I always wanted to adopt kids 'cause my Dad adopted me. That idea has stayed in the back of my head, but lately, I've been thinking about it more. 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.' That makes me sad 'cause it would be a waste to not have these people know each other. Whatever time I have, I want it.

And now she's allegedly become a mom! The details of the adoption still remain a secret, so stay tuned for any possible future announcements. For now, all we know is that the sweet and clearly under-the-radar news is a major development, but one we're thrilled to hear.

Congratulations to Dawson!
