Mariska Hargitay is 50 and loving it, according to a Jan. 24 People Magazine report. The “Law & Order: SVU” star celebrated her birthday milestone on the set of her hit NBC show, rocking a pair of silver glasses, and showing off her gluten-free, floral cake.

The beautiful actress later showed off a photo of her birthday cake featuring pink roses, lilies and daisies. The mother of three children is known for playing the tough Sergeant Olivia Benson who has seen the worst of sexual crimes. But in real life, Hargitay is a mother of three children, who embraces aging in Hollywood.

According to WebProNews, Hargitay showed off how she ushered in her happy new age on Instagram in a series of photos, including one with the star working it in a t-shirt that says “Fifty's Nifty,” and captioned, “Bring it.” Other photos show that the birthday girl had a blast on set. From flowers to balloons and her pink cake, this is one celebration that will be hard to forget.
