Though "Rollins" has sparked romance prospects with "Carisi" and "Amaro," fans were somewhat disappointed to learn the father of "Jesse" was "Lt. Declan Murphy," who hasn't been seen with the unit since season 17.
"Rollins" next announced her second pregnancy to "Benson" in season 20. The father of little "Billie" was then revealed as doctor "Al Pollack," an ex-boyfriend whom she broke up with after giving birth.
The detective and mother-of-two now raises her sweet children, who occasionally appear on SVU. But do you know the inspiration behind "Rollins'" children?

But while "Rollins" had two daughters, in real life, Giddish and husband Lawrence Faulborn share two sons, Ludo, 4, and Charlie, 1.
