Scarlett Johansson has a new baby sister! Johansson’s mother, Melanie Sloan, adopted a little baby girl from Ethiopia, UsMagazine.com is reporting.
Sloan was absent from Johansson’s ‘Iron Man 2’ premiere last week because she was traveling abroad to pick up her new child. It’s also been reported that Sloan was sidelined in
Germany for a few days during her trip due to the volcanic ash cloud. She eventually made it to Ethiopia where she picked up her new daughter, Fenan. Sources say Fenan is about 19-20 months old.
Johansson’s other siblings include an older brother, Adrian, a twin brother, Hunter, and an older half-brother, Christian, from her father’s first marriage.
When contacted, Johansson’s rep had no comment about the adoption.
It might not be too long before Johansson and husband Ryan Reynolds also look into adoption. Last year, Reynolds discussed the possibility with British Glamour revealing, “My oldest brother is adopted and I have every intention of adopting at some time. I’m very grateful for having my brother in my life. I couldn’t be more pro-adoption.”
