Congratulations are in order! Amazing actress Rosario Dawson is a mom! The Sin City star has adopted a 12-year-old daughter, and she couldn’t be more thrilled about it. The unexpected news were confirmed by multiple insiders close to the actress.
The insiders revealed that Dawson has always been family oriented and she had always wanted to raise a child. Dawson now has a deep desire to have a relationship with her daughter like she herself has with her own mother.
During one particular interview, she opened up about the subject and said “I always wanted to adopt kids ‘cause my dad adopted me.”
The Hollywood A-lister, who split from director Danny Boyle last year, said that not knowing who was her biological dad hasn’t ever bothered her.
Her adopted father started dating her mom when she was eight months pregnant with Rosario. “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.”
The idea of adopting a child has always been in the back of Dawson’s head. She concluded the 2008 interview saying: “Lately, I’ve been thinking about it more.” And so she did, 6 years later! The 35-year-old acknowledged actress revealed another reason for wanting to adopt a child, a reason slightly sad but beautiful at the same time.
Rosario said that her mother and grandmother are two extraordinary women, who are 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,” the actress concluded.
