“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Mariska Hargitay and her husband, actor Peter Hermann, are expecting their first child, her publicist said  Wednesday.

“I can confirm that she is expecting,” publicist Erwin More said of the Emmy-nominated actress. He said no further details were immediately available.

Hargitay, 41, is the daughter of Hollywood icon Jayne Mansfield and Hungarian bodybuilder Mickey Hargitay. Mansfield was killed in a 1967 car crash.

Hargitay met the 38-year-old Hermann, who has a recurring role on NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU,” on the set of the show.
