Spotted: Mariska Hargitay and August Share a Snuggle

Visitor on set!

In between shooting scenes for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on Thursday, Mariska Hargitay received some love from her littlest fan: son August Miklos Friedrich!

A regular on the set, the 3 ½-year-old is the only child for Hargitay, 46, and husband Peter Hermann, although if she gets her wish, he won’t be her last!

“It’s in God’s hands,” she says of another baby. “But we’re always open to it.”

I love this little boy. So cute. Heart breaker in the making! So glad Mariska is doing well and all healthy now.

I see a lot of his mom, but also quite a bit of his dad…

he’s a gorgeous boy… I hope he goes into acting (only as an adult, of course… like… after college… maybe after grad school)… cause he’d be great to watch if he’s half as good as either of his parents.

I love his haircut!

Helena on

He’s gorgeous! What a blessed little boy. I love the way she dresses him.

Mel- I’m confused by your comment. Was Mariska sick or something?

dfs on

Maggie, why do you think they’ll adopt?

Jen DC on

He is sooooo cute! They look very happy to see each other.

CelebBabyLover on

dfs- I’m guessing Maggie just meant that, given Mariska’s age, it’s not too likely that she’ll concieve another child, so, in her opinion, they’ll probably end up going the adoption route if they really want another child (in the interview linked to above, where Mariska discusses wanting another kid, it sounds like she and Peter would like another baby, but at the same time, if it isn’t meant to be, they’re okay with that, too. :)). 🙂

CelebBabyLover: Mariska had 2 collapsed lungs, what 2 years ago now?

OMG this boy is just too cute! With 2 good looking parents, where can you go wrong? Love Mariska!

Vanessa on

Whether they have another child naturally or adopted, I can’t wait. They are already so blessed to have August.

CelebBabyLover on

Vanessa- Thanks! I’d forgotten about that!
