Mariska Hargitay recently took 6 months off work, after the birth of her son, August Miklos Friedrich Hermann, now 9 months, with husband, Peter Hermann. Mariska talks motherhood and returning to work to the Herald Sun. Here are some of the highlights.

After working on Law & Order: SVU for eight years and then taking eight months off, Mariska wasn’t sure if she would be able to leave August and return to work.

Mariska goes on to talk about the joy of working and being able to take August with her; she didn’t have to choose between her two dreams.

And the future for her character? Neal Baer, the executive producer says the audience has a lot to look forward to.
