Jean Smart Adopts A Daughter

Actress Jean Smart welcomed a new baby to the family in 2009 as she and her husband Richard Gilliland adopted a 10-month-old girl.

The 58-year-old star broke the big news during an appearance yesterday on The Bonnie Hunt Show, revealing that she, her husband and their 19-year-old son Connor traveled to China last year to bring home their daughter Bonnie, who is now 18 months.

Despite their 18 year age difference the proud mom says that her son and daughter are "so smitten," but laughingly adds, "We thought they were going to be closer in age when we first started this!"

Jean is best known for her work on TV series such as Designing Women, 24 and Samantha Who?
