Mariska Hargitay's Rarely-seen Son August Is All Grown Up Now
Mariska Hargitay and Peter Hermann, who met on the set of “Law and Order: SVU” in 2002, married in 2004 and welcomed their first child, son August Miklos Friedrich, in 2006.
When he was younger, August would often accompany his mom to the New York City set of “Law & Order: SVU;” however, he has led quite a private life since.
According to Hargitay, August is an avid swimmer and, in 2023, she revealed his struggles with stuttering at the Stuttering Association for the Young (SAY) Benefit Gala.
Hargitay has also called August “a compassionate guy” and, as she shared during a 2012 interview to promote her charity, the Joyful Heart Foundation,
he's a doting big brother.
In fact, August’s demand for younger siblings was a source of encouragement for Hargitay and Hermann to adopt their other two kids, Amaya Josephine and Andrew Nicolas.
“[August’s] starting to say now, ‘We are three, and four is a more even number,’” Hargitay shared in her 2012 interview, musing, “I think he feels very powerful.”
