Mariska Hargitay: TV Guide cover mama

163x214_mhargitay_tvguidecover_060328_tv163_mhargitay_060328_tvgLaw & Order: SVU’s Mariska Hargitay is on the cover of the April 3rd issue of TV Guide magazine. She’s due with her son in late June.

She told TV Guide, "It was very strange to do a photo shoot with my little basketball here.  It’s uncomfortable for starters. You can’t get yourself in a good position, but I couldn’t be happier." She said she knows she’s going to have a big baby since her husband is 6’5!

Mariska said she knew she was pregnant when she could smell chocolate on the breath of someone five feet away – she says she’s "become the Bionic Woman" when it comes to smell.

As far as post baby plans, Mariska’s still wrapping her mind around the fact that she’s "going to be somebody’s mother. I get that I’m pregnant, I’m going to breastfeed, my life is going to change. But I don’t get that he’s going to be asking me questions!"For now, she’s planning to enjoy the rest of her pregnancy: "I’m going to wear a big muumuu, meditate, do prenatal yoga, get massages, lie in bed, and eat chocolates."

As far as names – don’t even ask. Mariska’s husband Peter has given her "the Serious Eye" and she’s not allowed to share them – but she does say they have a few picked out that they both agree on.

Mariska also said, "The truth about pregnancy is, I’ve never been happier in my life. This is all I’ve ever wanted."

You can really tell.  A smile is one thing- her joy is literally flowing out of her pores!
