“Thx @nbc,” the Law & Order: Organized Crime star adds to the Sunday night Insta video.
The video features Christopher Meloni’s wife Sherman as she is recording the happenings around her in Los Angeles. Clearly, Chris Meloni is the one creating the video. Sherman moves her phone across a crowd looking at the amazing view the two have as they stand on a balcony overlooking a bustling hub of Super Bowl activity. As she pans over the activity below, Sherman eventually turns her camera to the Law & Order: Organized Crime star as she gives him a big smile. The adorable couple sure knows how to make spending an awesome day together even a little bit better!

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Star’s Real Life Connection to SVU Costar
Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay certainly have an on-screen connection. But, what is it like for the stars when they are off the set? Pretty good, it seems.
Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay started working together when Law & Order: SVU premiered in the 1990s. In fact, it was in the audition for their respect SVU roles where the Law & Order stars first met each other. And, the two hit it off immediately.
“I was already standing up, and so we did this huge hug, and we’d never met,” Mariska Hargitay remembers of the moment she first met Meloni.
“He has a huge tattoo of Jesus on the cross, and so I said, ‘Oh my gosh, are you a Christian?’ And he’s like, ‘Um, no,’” the Law & Order: SVU actress continues.
“And I said, ‘Then why do you have that?’ He goes, ‘Just liked his commitment,'” Hargitay explains. “That sort of sums up Meloni.”
And, it seems, the rest was history as the pair knew the connection they felt was something special.
“I knew it was done then. It just happened,” Hargitay says.
“It was a pairing,” she adds. “From the first second before we even [auditioned]. You can’t write it.”
