On Saturday night, Law & Order: Organized Crime star Christopher Meloni shared a cute and funny picture to ring in America’s birthday.
Like many others on July 4th weekend, Meloni and his loved ones were celebrating Independence Day 2021. The actor joined millions of Americans on social media who shared their holiday festivities. Families and friends gathered to shoot fireworks and hold cookouts across the nation. While Meloni could’ve been doing the exact same thing, we can’t exactly tell from his picture.
The Law & Order actor instead showed off a patriotic snap of the family dog. Either Meloni’s wife, daughter, or a friend is seen standing outside on a porch wearing blue jeans with a red and white stripe down the side. In addition, the woman is wearing stars and stripes-covered sneakers.
However, the highlight of the July 4th photo is the family dog. The little shaggy pup is standing between the woman’s legs and wearing an Uncle Sam top hat. Who needs fireworks posts like everyone else shares when you can post cute dogs instead?
“Happy birthday America,” the Law & Order star simply tweeted along with the photo.
‘Law & Order’ Star Celebrates Wedding Anniversary With Touching Post
Law & Order star Chris Meloni has had plenty to celebrate this past week. Not only has he taken part in July 4th celebrations this weekend, but he also just celebrated his recent wedding anniversary. On Thursday, Meloni posted a touching tribute to his wife on their 26th anniversary.
Meloni, 60, and his wife Doris Sherman Williams, 58, first got to know each other back in 1989 on the set of a TV show. Yet during those early days, the pair never quite got their timing right. She had a boyfriend when they first met, and when they ran into each other again later on, Meloni had a girlfriend.
So it wasn’t until two years later that the couple were both available and finally began to date. Four years after they became an item, Meloni and Williams got married on the beaches of Malibu, California, according to a Country Living article.
The Law & Order actor and his artist wife share two children together. Their youngest is named Dante Amadeo Meloni, 17, and their oldest is Sophia Eva Pietra Meloni, 20. While the couple met in California, the family has lived in New York City for years because of the actor’s preference for the Big Apple.
On July 1, Meloni celebrated his “partner in crime” with a heartfelt Instagram post. He shared two pictures, an old one and a newer one. The first pic is from their 1995 Malibu wedding. Additionally, the actor added a more recent selfie they took together.
“How it started… how it’s goin. 26 years of…well… it’s hard to explain #partnerincrime #keepingitweird,” the Law & Order star captioned his anniversary post.
