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????

wow.
way to jump on that bandwagon.
Still Congrats to Brooke.

GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
