Mariska Hargitay, star of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and her husband, Peter Hermann, have welcomed their first child, a son named August, People magazine reports.
The baby, who was a week overdue, was born by Caesarean section Wednesday in Los Angeles, weighing 10 pounds, 9 ounces, the magazine said.
"Mother and baby are doing wonderfully," Hargitay's publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, was quoted as saying. "She is ecstatic — over the moon."
Messages left for Zelnik were not immediately returned Thursday.
Hargitay, 42, and Hermann, an actor, married in August 2004.
