Actor Hill Harper has just announced that he’s father to a baby boy named Pierce.
He said, “[Adopting Pierce] was the greatest decision I’ve ever made and I’ve never been happier.
“For years, I always wanted to be a parent,” he said. “I thought, you know, you get married, you have kids.”
Harper isn’t married and was unsure if he was actually ready to take on the role of someone’s father.”
He contacted an adoption attorney who connected him with a pregnant woman seeking parents for her child.
“I really felt like it was God telling me to do it,” he said. “And I’m so glad that he chose me, and [Pierce’s mom] and God and the universe chose me.”
“I was so scared,” he said. “I think because it was such a huge decision. But looking back now, all the fears I had were ridiculously small compared to the joy of having him in my life and having the opportunity to be a father.” Source and Image
