August Hermann: Mr. Please and Thank-You

August Hermann: Mr. Please and Thank-You

Mariska Hargitay shares some special moments with her son August Hermann, 3, as they prepare to depart for NYC from LAX airport in Los Angeles on Monday (September 21).

“My son made me look really good when two people told me he said ‘Excuse me, would you be so kind…’,” the 45-year-old Law & Order: SVU star has told OK! “She said ‘What have you been teaching him?’ And I went ‘that.’ He’s very polite, and that makes me very proud. He’s Mr. Please and Thank You. That’s important to me.”

So cute!

Mariska was in L.A. for the 2009 Emmy Awards.

    Mariska, please make sure August continues with the manners and etiquette. His good looks may corrupt him. I know children like this. They’ve grown up to be punks regardless of the parents’ good intentions.

    Thta child is what you call handsome. You see his jawline,bones,the works. mModel looks.When he becomes a man,very good looking.

    I mean this as a compliment. He is a unique child.

    Good to see that there are parents like Mariska and Peter. I think the boy, who is truly beautiful is as polite as the mother. Mariska interviews has proved a very humorous but also very polite.

    Mariska has explained in a couple of interviews why they named their son August:
    1. the name has been a bit of a tradition in his dad’s family
    2. August happens to be Mariska & Peter’s favorite month,
    3. it’s the month that peter was born
    4. it’s also the month of their wedding anniversary
    basically all their great traditions and important milestones in their lives occurs in August

    I would prefer if August dates Suri, she’s more interesting.
