‘Law & Order: SVU’ Star Chris Meloni Drops Family Selfie Beneath Fireworks for Fourth of July

by Chris Haney

On Sunday night, Law & Order star Christopher Meloni shared a patriotic July 4th selfie with his family beneath celebratory fireworks.

The actor and his family rang in the Fourth of July like millions of other Americans yesterday. Meloni gathered with his family to celebrate Independence Day and captured an awesome pic of their fireworks display.

In the first photo, the Law & Order actor is seen taking a selfie with five others, including his son Dante Amadeo Meloni. The selfie was taken at the perfect time as fireworks set off above their heads in the sky. Meloni also amusingly called the others in the photo “sketchy characters.”

Additionally, Meloni shared a second picture with the important women in his life. The photo included four women, including his wife, Sherman, the couple’s daughter, Sophia, and the actor’s sister and niece. The five of them were all smiles yesterday as they celebrated America’s birthday.

“Celebrating americas B Day with sketchy characters and the @sherman.meloni @sophiaemeloni and the other women in my life. #Sis #Niece,” Meloni wrote on Instagram.

‘Law & Order’ Actor Says ‘Happy Birthday America’ With Funny Photo

On Saturday night, the Law & Order: Organized Crime star shared an amusing but adorable picture as part of his July 4th celebrations. Instead of featuring the time spent with his family like on Sunday, Christopher Meloni shared a pic of a furrier member of the family.

Like Americans across the country on Fourth of July weekend, Meloni and his loved ones seemed to celebrate all weekend for Independence Day 2021. Likewise, he also took to social media like millions of others who posted their holiday festivities online. Friends, family, and loved ones gathered to shoot fireworks and grill out all weekend. Meloni and his family were no different as he showed off on Sunday with his fireworks photo.

Even though his family did celebrate together, the Law & Order actor instead showed off a patriotic snap of the family dog on Saturday. Either Meloni’s wife Sherman, or their daughter Sophia, or another unknown female is seen standing outside. They’re on a front or back porch wearing blue jeans with a red and white stripe down the side. The woman also added a nice patriotic touch with some stars and stripes-covered sneakers.

But the highlight of the Independence Day picture is the Meloni family dog. The little shaggy dog is sitting in between the woman’s legs as she stands on the porch. The pup is adorably wearing a miniature Uncle Sam top hat as his own patriotic-themed attire. We can’t blame Meloni for sharing the pic. Why post mundane Fourth of July photos when you can share dogs dressed like Uncle Sam photos instead?

“Happy birthday America,” the Law & Order star simply tweeted along with the photo.
