Celebrities are very much into the tradition of adopting kids. However, for actress Neve Campbell the decision to adopt a child stemmed from a longtime love for being a mother.

Neve Campell’s family

The ‘House of Cards’ star and her boyfriend JJ Field are proud parents of two. The lovebirds have been together since 2012, and in that year, welcomed their first son, Caspian.

Six years later, Raynor, who was adopted, joined the lovely family. Despite all these years together, Field and Campbell are still not married, but they remain one big family who is in love with each other.

Neve Campbell’s adoption story

Neve and Field officially adopted their son in June 2018. In the post to announce the successful completion of the process, the actress explained that welcoming Raynor was the “most incredible thing they have experienced.”

During an interview with Access Online a month after the adoption, Neve revealed that she had always wanted to adopt right from when she was young.

“I’ve always wanted to adopt. I knew I was going to adopt since I was a child. I don’t know why I just did. I was never as clear about having my own as I was about adopting.”

She continued saying:

“It’s just something I’ve always felt a real affinity for and pulled towards, and then it turned out to be the right story for us anyway. It’s an incredible road.”

Luckily, her decision to adopt was made easier by her first son Caspian, who was ever ready to be a big brother. She revealed that the sweet boy was “over the moon” to hold his new brother as he kept asking:

“Can I hold my baby? Can I feed my baby? Can I play with my baby?”

Talking about how Raynor has changed their lives as a family, the 46-year-old said:

“He is just the happiest, sweetest little man, and we are in love with him. Our son Caspian is just flourishing as a big brother.”

Neve is fulfilled about her family and having adopted a child, and she wouldn’t change it for anything.
