Brooke Smith Adopts Baby Girl From Africa

by at .

Grey's Anatomy actress Brooke Smith has adopted a baby girl from Ethiopia, her rep confirmed to People magazine.

It is the second daughter for Smith, 40, who plays Dr. Erica Hahn on the hit medical drama, and who already has a five-year-old daughter, Fanny, with her cinematographer husband Stephen Lubensky.

Smith, Brooke

Brooke Smith, who is best known for her role in Silence of the Lambs before Grey's Anatomy, had been considering adopting since October.

"You know, why not?" Smith said, adding that she and Lubensky have traveled to Africa several times, and filmed a documentary on conservationists in Zimbabwe together.

"We still might end up there some time," she said.

    Nice to see some news on here about some "other" cast members. I have to say, she's not my favorite character, but she's "OK". The thing I find most distracting about her, though, is her teeth (esp. the bottoms).................why didn't she ever have them straightened????
