Mariska Hargitay Leaving Law & Order?
Mariska Hargitay is the whole reason a lot of people even tune in to watch Law & Order: SVU, and now she might be leaving the show. Mariska has been a part of the cast since 1999, but hints she may be quitting the biz to spend more time as a mom.

She’s amazing at playing Detective Olivia Benson, but thinks being a full time mother to her son August is a bit more important. She tells Ladies Home Journal, “I just want to see my kid.”

And to give her even more reason to pack up and leave the show, Mariska says she and her husband Peter Hermann are trying for baby number two! Congrats to the happy couple!
