Laurelholloman75288_cbbThe L Word’s Laurel Holloman, 36, and her husband, production designer Paul Macherey, welcomed their second daughter on March 25th, this time through domestic adoption. No name or birth details have been released. The couple’s older daughter Lola is 3 ½. Rumors about a new baby recently starting swirling when Laurel had to drop out of a planned appearance at an L Word convention. She shared,

I’m not pregnant; I adopted a little girl on March 25th. It’s a domestic adoption. [That’s] all I can say. So I have two little girls now. I’m not going to say anything yet, but it was an amazing experience.

I had a wonderful experience with the birth mother who I spent a lot of time with before I left. Her labor was very touch and go and I was not going to leave her alone in that situation and go to London [for the convention]. … I really wanted to go to London, but I didn’t want to risk losing my daughter.

Sounds like she was present at the birth…that must have been very exciting. Congrats to her and her family on the new addition.

I’m a bit confused by her comment “That’s all I can say.” I mean, what would be preventing her from saying anything more, like a name or birth stats?


It could be that the adoption is not final. In some states the bio mother can change her mind.

LIKUNTA What is meant by ‘domestic adoption’?
Also,CDD do you know what does she meany by “touch & go”? Is it that the birthma hadnt 100% committed to adoption? Thx.
