Little one is gorgeous!! (And so are daddy and mommy for that matter!) August reminds me a bit of one of the Cullens in that second pic lol…

That boy is simply gorgeous! Oh so many little hearts will be broken🙂

I absolutely adore Mariska and think her family is the sweetest!!

Gina on

Awww, August is perhaps my favorite celebrity kid! I love the way he is looking at his dad in the first pic.

MissMissy on

He’s one of those little boys who–while super cute now–you can tell is going to grow into a *very* handsome man.

Absolutely gorgeous family…..August is growing into such a handsome little man!! Thanks for the reminder…tonight is an SVU night..woohoo!!

Ellea on

He’s so beautiful!! I’ve never seen his daddy before, hottie much?

Momof3girls on

Very attractive family!! I agree, he is one of those little boys who you know is going to be a handsome man!! His Daddy has played a lawyer on SVU before and he’s been on The Good Wife.

Lacey on

He’s such a cutie!!

He’s gorgeous. I remember watching TMZ one night and they were following him and Mariska in the airport and August sweetly says to the pap, “I like your camera.” and then he waved goodbye.

Karen on

Beautiful family. Yes, that boy will be a cutie!!

Ok wow, her husband is gorgeous! I don’t think I’ve ever seen him before, and I don’t know much about her but I did watch her True Hollywood Story and she seems very down to earth and is absolutely stunning as well. What a sweet little family:)

Robin on

Wow what a cute family! August looks exactly like his mom!

jenny on

What a gorgeous, gorgeous man. Peter Hermann, I am informing my husband that I am adding you to my ‘list’. Wow.

Beautiful little boy! I Like this family. Mariska seems like such a sweet person.

I absolutely adore this family! Peter and Mariska seem so content to live a fairly simple life. Yes, she is well known as Olivia Benson on SVU but for the most part, we don’t see many pictures of her with her husband and child. On the pictures we do get to see, they always look so happy to be together. August is such a precious little boy. I can’t help but wish that Mariska would get her wish of having another child, either through birth or adoption. I think they would be great adoptive parents!

Lady- Dang, I wish I had read this earlier! My parents and I are moving to Mississippi this weekend (from New Orleans) and have been packing and acting like crazy people all week. I thought that SVU came on on Wednesdays now. I hate that it came on tonight and I missed it! I’m not addicted to many television shows but SVU and Criminal Minds (which I mostly watch in re-runs on ION) are neck and neck for the number one slot!

That kid looks so much like his grandfather, when he was young. Lovely.

Soreeta on

Oh that has got to be one of the cutest little boys that I have ever seen! Just gorgeous!

Clem on

Everytime I see pictures of August he looks like the happiest little boy on earth, and Mariska seems to be a ball of fun for him. Clearly he is being rasied in a home full of love. What a beautiful family.

hILL on

Um GREAT looking kid. Looks like a Kennedy.

tam on

I think the boy looks very much like his maternal grandmother myself i thinks its the eyes and mouth?

FC on

I adore the photos, especially the first one where August is looking at his dad with such awe. It’s beautiful. They’re a beautiful family and, yes, I still want Peter and August for myself, lmao.

Elanor on

The Snowy day was one of my favourite books of all time. I think I would have looked as entranced as August if I had had a father that handsome reading it to me.

This little one is adorable now but when he is older he will be one good looking man.

I wish they would have more children

Susan Albert on

Mariska has always been one of my favorite actresses. I have never missed SVU and this is largely due to her. Her son and husband are both adorable. I think August looks a lot like his mom.
