Bathroom wiring


Our master bath is supplied by a dedicated 20A GFCI protected circuit that powers the receptacles in this bathroom only. However, we would like to add a new wall receptacle near a vanity area that is over five feet away from the sink. Do we have to tap the current dedicated 20A circuit for this receptacle or can we tap a 20A circuit running through the adjoining wall from an adjacent bedroom. I know that the dedicated bathroom circuit cannot supply receptacles in the adjoining bedroom, but does that also mean the bedroom circuit cannot be used to power the additional bathroom receptacle in this case?

Thanks in advance for your help.
