Mariska Hargitay's Baby Shower

mariska hargitay baby shower

Mariska Hargitay, known for her role as Detective Olivia Benson in the TV series Law & Order, was thrown a personal and posh surprise baby shower on March 9, 2006.

At the time, she was expecting a baby boy. 75 of her friends celebrated her baby shower at the Soho Grand Hotel in New York City. What made the baby shower fun and special was that Mariska had asked her friends to bring a gift that was descriptive of themselves. For example, Tamara Tunie, from Pittsburgh, gave Mariska a Steelers baby outfit, and Diane Neal gave her a pair of baby Pumas, since Diane frequently wears Pumas on the Law & Order set. And during the gift giving, Mariska had to guess who gave the gift. (1)

It was a "blue" baby shower - everything from gifts, to decorations, to the cake. At the end, Mariska gave an emotional thank you to all of her guests. (1)
