There was disagreement over the response on social media, with some highlighting August’s striking resemblance to his mother. “You really said copy and paste with August’s face?” someone said.


Some commented that August looked like his father, Peter Hermann, an actor and producer. One netizen wrote: “August really just went and took Peter’s entire face.”

Born on June 28, 2006, August and Mariska have always been very close. He has been Mariska’s mother’s constant companion since he was born the first child of Peter and Mariska. August was accompanying Mariska on flights as early as six weeks old, and it has been revealed that she even takes him with her when she works.


Mariska told She Buys Travel anecdotally about August’s adventurous spirit on an aircraft when he learned to walk, saying, “He’s such a curious and social little guy.” I believe he was sitting on a chair and getting stir crazy. and that the pilot had to tell him to sit down!

Mariska claims that August is an excellent big brother to his younger siblings, Amaya Josephine Hermann and Andrew Nicolas Hermann, in addition to his natural curiosity and exploratory abilities. People was told by Mariska how August acquired a protective role once his younger sister Amaya was adopted. Mariska claims that August referred to Amaya as “his baby” and expressed his dedication to keeping her safe.

August even thought that the family’s choice to adopt had been influenced by his expressed wishes for younger siblings. “I want a baby sister,” Mariska declared to Good Housekeeping, and Amaya arrived. After he declared, “I want a baby brother,” Andrew arrived. It seemed that August was happy with the new family members.
