While she isn’t filming for Law & Order: SVU, Mariska Hargitay likes to get out and enjoy some great tennis. She shared selfies from a recent tournament. College athletics are always a joy to watch and participate in. Hargitay has a nephew that plays for Harvard’s men’s team.

The SVU star poses alongside her friend, whose son plays for Harvard, in one set of pictures. Having a child make it to college is always a proud moment for parents, however, when they go to Harvard, there is a little extra excitement. Not to mention playing tennis for the Crimson.

Hanging out with her friend, author Isabel Gillies, the two looked to be taking in the play at Harvard. While neither are alumni, admittedly so in the post, they are Crimson fans nonetheless.

“We’re serious cause we’re at Harvard,” the caption says. Mariska Hargitay included a number of hashtags, something she seems to struggle with, in a hilarious way. However, she included that she was a “proud auntie” and Gillies a “proud step mama”.

Hargitay also included a photo of her and her Nephew, Henry von der Schulenburg.

Hargitay’s nephew is quite an accomplished tennis player. As a junior player in Switzerland, he was able to receive a world ranking and a high ranking among Swiss players as a whole. He is a three-time national champion in Switzerland. So, his Law & Order: SVU auntie has a lot to be proud of in regards to his play, not to mention his academic achievement at Harvard.

‘Law & Order: SVU’ Season 23 Premiere

This past week, the 23rd season of Law & Order: SVU premiered. Of course, Mariska Hargitay was back. The night was a big one for fans of the show. Not only did a new season of SVU drop, but a new season of Organized Crime did as well. The two shows crossed over and gave fans a look at an Elliott Stabler/Olivia Benson reunion.

Fans had been waiting for the reunion. The relationship between the two detectives has long been a point of focus for viewers. Will they, won’t they type moments have made fans think there is something more to the relationship. When the trailer came out for the new season, the speculation continued as the two were seen holding hands in a very intimate moment.

While it all remains to be seen if there will be more Stabler and Benson drama, the two will be busy solving crimes. Some fans didn’t appreciate the second season premiere of Organized Crime, but it was an exciting night for Law & Order: SVU fans. It gave them almost all they wanted out of the premiere. After all, it was the most-watched program on Thursday night.
