Rosario Dawson

Rosario Dawson

Rosario Dawson has reportedly adopted a 12-year-old girl this past October, reports the New York Post newspaper's Page Six.

The star has been open about her adoption plans for years and is now said to have gone ahead with the process despite being single.

In a 2008 magazine interview she explained: "That idea has stayed in the back of my head, but lately, I've been thinking about it more."

She also revealed she hoped to have children as soon as possible so they could be introduced to her relatives.

"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'."

Recently she also confessed that whilst she admires her mother, she didn't want to follow in her footsteps and become a mother at such a young age.

"I was an awkward teenager. I went stag to my prom. I was a virgin until I was 20-years-old.

"My mother was raising five kids on her own. I wasn't just going to sit back and be a horny teenager and continue some cycle of teenage pregnancy - I wanted more opportunities."
