On Tuesday, PageSix reported that Dawson had adopted a 12-year-old girl, and on Wednesday, a source confirmed to People that the Top Five actress had indeed adopted a child earlier this year. But don't expect to hear confirmation directly from Dawson herself.
During an appearance on the TODAY Show, host Matt Lauer asked about her recent adoption.
"I very rarely talk about tabloid speculation and this is not an exception," Dawson 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."
