MARISKA HARGITAY SHOCKER

MARISKA HARGITAY is ready to turn in her badge to become a full-time mother now that she's been blessed with a second child, sources tell The ENQUIRER.

The "Law & Order: SVU" beauty, who already has a 4-year-old son with husband Peter Hermann, adopted a baby girl recently.

Although Mariska loves her job playing Olivia Benson on the hit NBC show, she's on the verge of walking away from TV to devote more time to her kids.

The gorgeous 47-year-old star - one of TV's highest-paid actresses at $395,000 per episode - adopted Amaya Josephine, who is African-American, to give her biological son August a sibling, say insiders.

And now, she's ready to be a full-time mom because she  "knows being onTV won't last forever!", the source divulged.
