CONFIRMED: Mariska Hargitay expecting

11/30/2005 at 12:25 PM ET

Mhargitay_1 Update: Mariska herself has confirmed her pregnancy on her website,, writing "Yes, it’s true. There’s a bun in the oven…"  No due date or gender revelation though.  (By the way, it’s the cutest site- more reasons to love Mariska!)

Liz Smith is reporting that Mariska Hargitay, 41, of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and her husband Peter Hermann are expecting their first child.  Though Liz says she is "100 per cent certain," the rumor is unconfirmed by Mariska’s people.

you know – i was watching the new episode last night and thought that she looked a bit heavier than usual. of course – she’s still incredibly thin!

I am happy for her. I just read about how she and her husband wanted children in her latest interview in Redbook but she and her husband had been waiting for the right time. She’ll have that baby soon enough.🙂

I checked out her website. Really awesome and some great links to help for people who are victims of real crimes. She seems like a genuinely nice person and, I believe, a good friend of Katie Brown, who I love! I’m very happy for this couple.
