Kristin Davis, who portrayed Charlotte York in the "Sex and the City" franchise, has adopted a baby daughter named Gemma Rose.

"This is something I have wanted for a very long time," Davis told People magazine. "Having this wish come true is even more gratifying than I ever had imagined. I feel so blessed."

Davis told People that she welcomed Gemma Rose a few months ago through a domestic adoption.

The actress' Charlotte York Goldenblatt character also adopted a child in the first "Sex and the City" film.

The 46-year-old actress is a global ambassador for Oxfam and a patron for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Davis was honored with the Humane Society's 2011 Wyler Award for her work with orphaned African elephants.

Aside from "Sex and the City," Davis has appeared in films like "Deck the Halls" and "Couples Retreat." She will next appear in "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," which also stars Vanessa Hudgens, Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson and Dwayne Johnson and is slated for release on February 10, 2012.

In April, Candice Bushnell released a second prequel to her popular "Sex and the City" novels and the author said that she would like Selena Gomez to play a younger version of Davis' character Charlotte York if a movie were made.

The first "Sex and the City" movie was released in 2008 and made $415 million worldwide, generating an approximate $350 million profit for the film studio. The second movie, which was set in Abu Dhabi and hit theaters in 2010, made about $95 domestically and $288 million worldwide. It had a production budget of about $100 million and was criticized by most top movie critics.

Kim Cattrall who played Samantha in the franchise recently said she wasn't sure if she would want to reprise her character in a third movie.
