Mariska Hargitay: Take Your Son to Work Day!

Mariska Hargitay takes her bright-eyed son August, who just turned one yesterday, to work with her on the NYC set of Law and Order: SVU on Thursday.

FYI: August has two middle names — one from Mariska‘s father (former Mr. Universe Miklos “Mickey” Hargitay) and the other from hubby Peter Hermann‘s paternal grandfather, Friedrich. Mariska has said, “The has been in Peter‘s family for 200 years. It’s a strong name that means ‘majestic’ and ‘revered.’”

FYI: Mariska is using her Maclaren stroller.

    Darling boy. I really love that first photo of Mariska and August together.

  • lilkunta

    Great pic but bad haircut.

    Y Y WHY? does her hair have to be short to portray Olivia Benson?

  • Juno

    Augie will grow up to be a male version of mommy. Mariska is very attractive, but in a way she has more of a masculine beauty. Not dainty, but still beautiful. Soooo, my 2 cents is this kid’s gonna be a looker when he grows up.

  • anna dicaprio ;)

  • anythn

    the a baby is darling. Mariska is very feminine, particularly when her hair is longer.

  • Rii

    Mariska is so gorgeous and talented. She’s one of my favourite TV actresses. August is a cute baby and very alert. They look really adorable together.

  • Maniston

    That baby is ugly. Frightening looking.

  • jeannified

    He is beautiful!!! He’ll be a regular Hollywood superstar in NO TIME!!!

  • nani

    I didnt know she was Jayne Mansfield daughter. I read on IMDB that she was in the car crash that killed her mother.. She was a young child and along with her brothers she survived.

  • cm

    He has to be the most beautiful baby in Hollywood

  • OnSaleGirl

    August is a cutie-patootie!!! Motherhood suits Mariska. She looks better than ever.

  • kaye

    august is a cutie!

  • Anne

    August is pretty and Mariska, after the maternity, was still more pretty. This actress, me seems, is different of the great majority. She is a simple person, who takes a normal life and she did not leave herself to lead for the notoriety. I admire its to carater and its talent and twist for its success. I wait that Mariska and Peter are happy forever and that it is always this person human being and sensivel that seems to be. The life, after the tragedy that if abated on its family (death its mother) came back to smile to it. It deserves

  • Khia

    I love the picture were you are holding your son and you two are looking at the camera, he is so so cute and he looks a lot like you, just from these pictures it looks like you two have lots of fun together he loves his mommy so much, i can tell just by the look on his face and i think the name August is a cute name also

  • Khia

    I love Mariska Haggerty i love the character Olivia Benson and i think you are the most wonderful mother and wife i have ever seen from the pictures. On your show you help people and you are my favorite character in the world, i have watched your show ever since i was little i love it so much. Your wonderful Mariska just wonderful and thoughtful

  • Charity

    The picture of her swinging her baby around and having fun, while she’s wearing Olivia’s gun on her hip, makes me chuckle! PS, have you ever seen her husband? Good Lord, what a handsome devil. August definitely drew high in the gene pool poker game.
