While this family is not inclined to step into the limelight, they still have moments where they open up.
One such example is when Mariska Hargitay spoke about her family in an exclusive interview.
She expressed that she loves being the mother to her three children, August, Andrew, and Amaya, who have taught her many lessons. More than that, she said that her husband, Peter Hermann, is her guiding light.
The family made a rare appearance when they attended the 2023 Stuttering Association for the Young Benefit Gala, where Hollywood actress Mariska Hargitay and her dashing husband, Peter Hermann, stepped out to show support.
Though the stars’ appearances were something to marvel at, what was even more pleasantly surprising was the presence of their rarely-seen children. As Hargitay and Hermann took center stage on the carpet, three kids trailed along behind them and joined their parents for the special event
Posing for a family picture, Hargitay looked stunning in a pastel green colored wrap-around dress and wore her luscious brown hair loose as she protectively held onto her daughter, Amaya’s shoulder, who looked gorgeous in an off-the-shoulder floral dress. The little girl stood beside her big brother, Andrew, who adorned a dapper suit that matched his father’s.The eldest son, August, was situated in the middle of Mom and Dad in a blue long-sleeved t-shirt with a big smile on his face while his father placed a loving arm around his shoulders. August was born in 2006, and his siblings were adopted five years later, within six months of each other.
The “Welcome to 18” star has been married to her husband, Hermann, for 18 years, and the couple is still going strong. When asked about what the secret to being married for so long is, Hermann indicated that it all comes down to creating moments of joy and laughter:
“I never thought I would have this much laughter in my life. Not just actual laughter but also the way that Mariska is just the embodiment of laughter – of joy.”
