Mariska Hargitay's Life As a Mom
Mom With a Badge
"I pride myself on being August's mom. I think having a baby -- especially one that's happy -- levels the playing field. Regardless of our career, when it comes to being parents, we share the same profession," Hargitay (with August on the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit set in 2007) has said. "No matter how fancy our job or what people project onto you, all of a sudden you're just a mommy and I love that."
