Actress Sharon Stone has adopted a baby boy, her publicist has said.

The boy, born to "unknown and unrelated parents in Texas" on Saturday, has been named Laird Vonne Stone.

Stone, 47, already has a five-year-old son she adopted with her ex-husband Phil Bronstein. "Mommy and her boys are over the moon," her publicist added.

Stone has reportedly flown back to the US from London, where she is filming Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction, a sequel to her 1992 hit.

In the film Stone reprises her role as ice pick-wielding killer Catherine Tramell.

British actor David Morrissey plays a criminal psychiatrist appointed by Scotland Yard to evaluate her, while ex-footballer Stan Collymore appears as a murder victim.

Stone is expected to attend the Cannes Film Festival next week to promote her new film, Broken Flowers.
