Rosario Dawson refuses to discuss adoption rumors on Today show

According to the New York Post, Rosario Dawson has become a mom in October after the adoption of a 12-year-old girl.

Dawson has been vocal about considering adopting a child, a choice motivated by the fact that she herself was adopted by her stepfather when she was 1.

“That idea has stayed in the back of my head, but lately, I’ve been thinking about it more,” she told Latina magazine in 2008. “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.’ . . . Whatever time I have, I want it.”

However, during an interview on NBC’s Today on Wednesday, the 35-year-old declined to clarify the speculation when asked by Matt Lauer if the adoption rumors were true.

“I very rarely talk about tabloid speculation and this is not an exception,” she replied. “My family is incredibly private—most of us anyway. I don’t think anyone’s going to be writing a book anytime soon, just because we’re too lazy.”

“Believe me, if anyone were to talk about this, including myself…” she continued. “We’re going to keep…mum’s the word. I’m really glad to be here talking about Top Five, so thank you.”
