Me-WOW, Mariska Hargitay.
It appears that Taylor Swift has welcomed a new cat, and named her fab feline addition after Hargitay's most famous character: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit's detective Olivia Benson.
On Wednesday, Swift shared an Instagram of a fluffy white kitten sitting sweetly in her lap with the simple caption, "Meet Olivia Benson." No confirmation on whether or not the cutie is actually her kitty, though the rest of the Twitterverse seems to think so.

Age is clearly nothing but a number for Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay, who happily celebrated turning 50 on set in N.Y.C. Thursday, flaunting it with a pair of giant silver glasses announcing her milestone birthday.
Hargitay was all smiles as she accepted a pink rose, lily and daisy-covered birthday cake, Tweeting a photo of the colorful confection, which she noted was gluten-free.
Hargitay, who plays the tough and tender Sergeant Olivia Benson on the long-running show, now in its 15th season, has been a poster girl for embracing beauty and change as she grows older in the celebrity spotlight. She told Ladies' Home Journal last year that she was proud of her curves as a mother of three children, eschewing Hollywood's over-sexualized and unrealistic expectations of women.

In another week of tragedy, it was a breath of fresh air to read something lighthearted, like Mariska Hargitay's outlook on her body after baby.
Readers loved the reason why the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star, 49, embraces her curves.
"I love my curves because they scream, 'I'm a mama!' " the actress said. "I'm the girl who started wearing maternity pants about an hour after I found out I was pregnant because I was so excited about becoming a mom."
