Did You Know...

that in 1977 Julie Andrews adopted two children from Vietnam?


"We wanted a child and weren't being successful," Andrews told PEOPLE in 1977 of adopting two Vietnamese orphans, Amy Leigh and Joanna Lynne (now 36 and 34, respectively), with husband Blake Edwards. "It's been wonderful to watch two pale, sad-eyed creatures blossom." Now she's a grandmother to seven, saying, it's been "wonderful because you get all the fun and you get to spoil as much as you like."

I also didn't know that. And that was before it was "fashionable" by the stars. She always seemed to be good with kids in her movies, so I'm not surprised.
