Peter Hermann and Mariska Hargitay have an envy-inducing love story, and their family is just as sweet. The couple, who first met on the set of Law and Order, are happy parents to three beautiful children.
Aside from bringing them on the red carpet from time to time, Mariska constantly gives us little glimpses of their home life on social media. The duo first welcomed their son, August Miklos Friedrich, in June 2006, and their daughter and son, Amaya Josephine and Andrew Nicolas, by adoption almost five years later.
Over the years, the actress has been very open about her journey with adoption and her desire to have a big family. Even though the pair faced a few bumps along the way – one birth mother changed her mind a few days after an adoption – Mariska admits that becoming Amaya and Andrew’s mom was definitely “worth the fight.” See the family of five’s sweetest moments together.

Please Enjoy David Beckham Adorably Defending His Lego Obsession: “I Am a Little Kid”
David Beckham has many titles: retired professional soccer player, husband of 20 years, father of four children, dapper fashion icon, and, perhaps most unexpectedly, unflinching Lego enthusiast. The 44-year-old star stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday to chat about his family life, which led talk show host Jimmy to inquire about his obsession with the colorful plastic building bricks. David explained that he grew up assembling Lego pieces since the age of 8 or 9, and the hobby has carried over into his adult years, as he now stays up until the wee hours of the night piecing together giant sets by himself – y’know, for his kids, obviously.
David’s Lego infatuation seems to amuse his wife Victoria Beckham, who often trolls him on Instagram for the hobby. “Victoria always laughs at me,” David told Jimmy. “She’ll come down at 2 o’clock in the morning, and I’ll still be trying to finish a piece off.” Despite the low age recommendations indicated on the boxes, David stands by his Lego fixation. “I am a little kid. I just love Lego. It calms me when I’m making it,” the dad said. Welp, if that quote alone doesn’t make your love for him grow tenfold, then the photo ahead of him proudly posing with his perfectly assembled Lego Disney castle certainly will!
