The .actress disclosed .yeslerda that the court has approved th adoption of Tommy, the little so of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Kavanjtgh, whom the actress brought home from London last year. The Kavanaghs were-given one- ar probation by nn English court last April 24 for "unlawfully permitting the care and possession of an infant to be .transferred."
