Nia Vardalos and her husband Ian Gomez have adopted a little girl several months ago and are urging people to do the same.


Golden-Globe nominated actress Nia Vardalos has adopted a little girl. Name of the child, who's less than 5 years old, hasn't been disclosed for privacy reason.

According to her representative, Nia and her actor husband Ian Gomez initially adopted the girl several months ago, but have decided to make it public because they want to encourage other people to follow in their footsteps by adopting children in need. "They are going public now to bring attention to National Adoption Month and the 500,000 children in foster care," the representative explains in a statement. "Of these children, 129,000 are 'legally free' for adoption and waiting for a family."

Still through the representative, Nia and Ian also suggest people to visit AdoptUsKids.org to learn more about adoption.

Nia and Ian have been married since September 1993. The girl they've adopted is the first child for them.

Earning her worldwide fame for her starring role as Toula Portokalos in 2002 movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", Nia has signed on to star in upcoming movies; "My Life in Ruins" and "I Hate Valentine's Day".
