Mariska Hargitay, the 59-year-old star of Law and Order: SVU, took to Instagram to pay tribute to her late mother, Jayne Mansfield, on what would have been her 90th birthday. Mariska shared a black and white photo of Jayne, who tragically passed away at the age of 34. The picture showed Jayne smiling in the midst of a cheerful crowd.

In the caption, Mariska expressed her love for her mother, writing, "Happy birthday Mama. We live to love you more each day," accompanied by a pink heart emoji. Fans of the actress joined her in celebrating Jayne's legacy over five decades after her death.

One fan recalled meeting Jayne and Mariska's father 60 years ago, describing Jayne as the most beautiful woman and the smartest businesswoman their father had ever met.

Another fan account praised Mariska's accomplishments, saying that Jayne must be proud of the elegant, giving, classy, beautiful, and talented woman her daughter has become.

A follower expressed their belief that those they've lost are dancing in heaven and watching over them with love. They commended Mariska for the woman she has become and all that she has accomplished.

Jayne Mansfield was born in 1933 and gained fame as an actress, singer, and Playboy Playmate. She was regarded as one of the sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s. In her role in Promises! Promises!, she became the first major American actress to perform a nude scene in a post-silent era film.

Tragically, on June 29, 1967, Jayne died in a car crash at the age of 34. The vehicle she was traveling in collided with the back of a truck, resulting in her and two others in the front seat being crushed to death. However, miraculously, three of her five children in the back seat survived the accident.
