The 35-year-old actress has reportedly adopted a 12-year-old girl in October, according to Page Six. A source close to the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For star adds to E! News that Dawson, who was adopted by her stepfather Greg at a very young age, the first-time parent is "over the moon" about her new child. "She has always wanted this," the insider says about Dawson, who has been single since splitting with her Trance director, Danny Boyle, last year. In the past, Dawson has openly expressed to adopt after experiencing the adoption process herself as a child. "I always wanted to adopt kids 'cause my Dad adopted me," she told Latina magazine in 2008. "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." My dad started dating my mom when she was eight months pregnant with me," she added. "He was beautiful. I wanted to be him. I love my father, he is amazing to me. I was daddy's little girl growing up." Tags: Rosario Dawson
