Presenting: the kidcessory.
Ever hear of Mariska Hargitay? I hadn't, until she became a celebrity mom. Now she shows up at every event on the celebrity mom endorsement circuit. New Finding Nemo ride at Disneyland? She's there. Hot Mom Soiree, hosted by Suave? She's hosting it. Interview with Cookie Magazine? Check. And, alas, she's milking it in the literal sense, participating in the Got Milk campaign with her kidcessory in tow.
Hargitay's little kidcessory turned one this month. Where does she host his first birthday party? At her house? Somewhere private? Not so much. Try Central Park. Desparate for press, much?
Happy birthday, August! Say "papparazzo"!
