I think Mariska Hargitay has one of those faces that will age well because it is full of character.

I agree that the baby is adorable.

Love her too! My heart melted when I read August was a proud big brother.

BTW, Mariska's mom is Jayne Mansfield so go figure.

Mariska is one of my favorite people! She does a great job on SVU and does rape advocacy outside of her job too. Plus she's just drop dead gorgeous! Congrats to her family!
