What Mariska Hargitay Just Wore That Shows off Some Major Holiday Spirit

Many people are fully aware of who Mariska Hargitay is and the serious powerhouse she plays on Law & Order: SVU. Captain Olivia Benson is usually quite reserved at work, where fans have the privilege to see her most of the time. But Benson’s real-life counterpart seems to be much more personable. Hargitay has been known to share awesome photos of her life with fans on social media, and many of them seem to appreciate it.

Hargitay and her husband, Peter Hermann, met on the set of SVU in 2002 when Hermann played a defense attorney named Trevor Langan. Their relationship blossomed and they married in 2004. From there, they had their first child August, in 2006. And in 2011, Hargitay and Hermann adopted both Amaya and Andrew within months of each other. Together they make a family of five. They even dress up in family costumes that are coordinated ahead of time for Halloween each year. The holiday season can also be a fun time, especially with children.

Hargitay is known to share photos of her life with her fans on social media, and she doesn’t disappoint. This week, in an appropriately-timed post during the holiday season, Hargitay shared an image of herself wearing reindeer antlers in a green hue. A red headband keeps it all in place, and there’s even a bell attached to the antlers. Hargitay has her mouth open in a smile, and she appears to be in a pink-themed room, possibly one of her children’s.

It’s a very fitting headband for the time of year, and it shows off some serious holiday spirit. Hargitay captioned the post on Instagram: “Happy Sunday #ReindeerGames #InThisInsaneYearI’mFocusingOnAllTheBlessings #FamilyTime.”
