Mariska Hargitay Adopts a Baby Girl
Mariska Hargitay, known for her role as Olivia Benson on the hit show, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,has adopted a 1-week old baby girl. Hargitay said her husband and her 4-year old son all helped come up with names for the baby and they settled on the name Amaya Josephine. The name Amaya arose from Hargitay’s favorite female name, Maya. “I thought adding the ‘A’ was so feminine. Amaya sounded so open and feminine and beautiful — just like her,” the actress said.
Congratulations on your new addition Mariska.
