Mariska Hargitay Adopts Baby Girl
Law & Order: SVU's Olivia Benson (and her real life husband, who is also on the show) has adopted a baby girl. The baby's name is Amaya Josephine and she was born a week ago in the U.S. The couple also have a son, four year old August. Mariska and Peter Hermann (you know him as Trevor Langan on SVU) married in August of 2004. I am very excited about this news, she seems like she would be a good mom! I also love the show and I think its so sweet that they found each other. He was originally cast to be a love interest for Alex, but found real life love instead. He has been a recurring character since 2002, and I am sure he will remain on the show as long as Mariska is on there too. She is actually one of my favorite characters, the only person on the show that I like more than her is Casey Novak (who is no longer on the show).
