The award-winning actress, Mariska Hargitay, is most famously known for her portrayal of Olivia Benson in the drama series Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit.


On February 24, 2018. Hargitay and her husband, Peter Hermann, took their three children - August, Andrew, and Amaya - to watch a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.

As reported by Pop Sugar, Andrew and Amaya looked adorable in their matching albeit oversized Knicks t-shirts as the family cheered from the sidelines.

Hermann and Hargitay have been married for 14 years and met on the set of Law & Order. The couple tied the knot on August 28, 2004, and welcomed their first child, August, two years later.

Amaya was adopted in April 2011 and Andrew was adopted in October that same year. The family loves spending time together despite the parents' busy schedule.

The children have attended red carpet events with Hargitay, and she shares glimpses of their family life on her social media profiles.

Hermann released his children's book titled If The S In Moose Comes Loose on March 13, 2018. On April 16, 2018, Hargitay's documentary I Am Evidence, will premiere on HBO.

Hargitay started her acting career when she landed the part of Donna in the 1985 film, Ghoulies. She joined the cast of Downtown the following year and appeared in 14 episodes.

She also directed several episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit between 2014 and 2017 and produced season fifteen through to season eighteen.


Hargitay hopes to shine a light on the 'staggering number of untested rape kits' in her new documentary, as reported by People. The rape kits contain DNA evidence but are collecting dust in storage rooms instead.

“The rape kit backlog is the most shocking demonstration of how we regard these crimes. You can’t change or fix what happened to one person. What you can change is what might happen to someone else.”
