Mariska Hargitay, hubby, have son

This must be the summer of wuv.

Mariska Hargitay and her husband Peter Hermann, who met on the set of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, has welcomed their first child, People magazine reported today. Hargitay, who is 42, plays NYPD detective Olivia Benson on the TV program.

"Mother and baby are doing wonderfully," Hargitay's rep told the magazine. "I just talked to her and she is ecstatic--over the moon." The baby boy was born on Wednesday at 3:21 p.m. in Los Angeles. The couple have been hitched almost two years, having wed in a Santa Barbara, California, wedding in August 2004.

Hargitay is the most recent in a summer filled with celebrity births. The superevent was Angelina Jolie giving birth to her and Brad Pitt's baby Shiloh. In June, Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, also delivered a baby girl, and Jack Black and wife Tanya Haden had a boy.

Congrats!! It was sooooo funny seeing them try to hide the pregnancy on the last episodes. You know, always sitting, when she stood, shots from the shoulders up, coats, and of course, holding the file over the belly shot. I luved it!!!
