Another day, another adorable social media post involving Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay and her husband Peter Hermann.
Mariska Hargitay has been a fan favorite on Law & Order: SVU for just about as long as we can remember. She has starred as Olivia Benson on the Law & Order spinoff since 1999 and still is to this very day. As a matter of fact, Hargitay and the rest of her colleagues on SVU just hit an impressive milestone on Thursday — they officially aired their 500th episode of the show.
But on Monday evening, Hargitay and Hermann decided to take a break from their normally busy schedules. Instead, they made a visit to the New York Botanical Garden. They were able to get a quick snap while there as well. Hargitay posted a photo of her and her husband surrounded by pink flowers in the background. The Law & Order: SVU star posted the photo without a caption. Take a look down below:
Meanwhile, fans of Law & Order: SVU took to the comments section of Hargitay’s post to hype up the cute couple. So, we here at Outsider are definitely not the only ones who think that the two actors are adorable.
“YES YES YES!” one SVU fan replied.
“My heart just exploded,” another user said. “You two are adorable!”
And finally, another person told the actress that they are trying to find a relationship like she has.
“The way I look forward to finding a relationship as beautiful as yours with Peter? I really look up to that.”
Husband of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Star Pens Heartfelt Message for 500th Episode
Mariska Hargitay has a lot to be thankful for. That’s for sure. Her career on Law & Order: SVU has led to her becoming one of the most iconic actresses in the country. Not only that, but it also introduced her to her husband, fellow actor Peter Hermann. They began a relationship together after Hermann made a guest appearance on the crime show back in 2002 during season 3. He played Trevor Langan and still makes appearances from time to time.
The couple officially got married in 2004. Two years later, the couple welcomed a son into the world in June of 2006. His name is August. Five years later, Hargitay and Hermann adopted another daughter, Amaya, and a son, Andrew.
With that said, there’s no denying that the two Law & Order: SVU stars have become role models for so many young couples out there. On Thursday, Hermann played the role of the supportive boyfriend when he congratulated his wife for her impressive milestone.
“@Mariska You’re at 500 episodes tonight. You astonish me,” Hermann wrote in a tweet. “We met in episode 54. Best 447 episodes of my life. Congratulations, you beautiful life force. I love you. #SVU”
