Los Angeles: Actor Mariska Hargitay`s son is very particular about the right pronunciation of his mother`s name.

Hargitay is known for her role in the NBC television drama ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ as detective Olivia Benson and has won several awards for it.

Recently, when the 48-year-old attended the Baby Buggy Bedtime bash by actor Jessica Seinfeld, her son, August, interrupted a reporter when Hargitay`s name was mispronounced, reports a website.

"That`s not how you pronounce it. Get it right," the six-year-old August said after pointing out how to do it.

Laughing it off, Hargitay said: "I don`t normally correct people, but he doesn`t like it when people say my name wrong."
