He wants to give her the family she never had.”A spokeswoman for McGregor confirmed that he had adopted the girl but gave no further details.The news comes after reports that the star had tried to adopt an abandoned three-year-old orphan called Jamiyantsetseg in 2004.That application was rejected and instead he agreed to fund the girl’s living and school expenses in Ulan Bator until she is at least 16.Police doctor Enkhmaa Jamsrangiin said at the time: “He asked me to find a good orphanage for the child. He told them he would pay the bill.”He spent a lot of time playing with the kids and seemed really sad at their situation.” from http://www.thisislondon.co.uk more articles:Ewan adopts a child from Asia One more for McGregor clan Ewan adds to his family
