On January 30, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay attended a New York Knicks game with her 17-year-old son, August, and had a blast. 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Thursday, October 3 at 9/8c on NBC.

In a fun video that the New York Knicks posted to their official X/Twitter account, Hargitay is seen rocking a leather jacket while eagerly watching the game from her seat and giving a big thumbs up. August pops up in the video for a second, equally as pumped to be court side.

This is just the latest of Hargitay's many adventures. A few weeks back, she spent quality time with August when he accompanied her on a Safari in Kenya. Hargitay rocked flannel in a photo from the trip posted to her official Instagram page, while August gave a smile from the backseat of their vehicle.

Mariska Hargitay's son, August, joins her for a good cause

In May 2023, Hargitay, her longtime husband, Peter Hermann, and August attended a benefit gala for Stuttering Association For The Young (SAY). 

Hargitay told People about the event,  "The thing about stuttering, and what I've learned, is so many times people who stutter try not to speak or try to switch the word or not say anything, get out of it, hide. It's so heartbreaking to think that all these amazing humans with so much to offer would be holding it in because of how the world treats them, or for fear. It's been so exciting to learn and to understand and educate people because as soon as people know, they're like, ‘Oh, my gosh. Thank you. Tell me more. Tell me more.’ It's been just a beautiful journey.”

She continued, “I think when we feel safe and loved, when we level the playing field, your heart opens up to yourself and everyone else. We work hard to help people whose voices have been silenced. I know when I don't feel safe or I'm scared, I also can't express myself. So, I feel more comfortable and in my own skin when I'm here and around these people. It's really a gift to all of us.”
