Chris Meloni Shared a Pic of His 19-Year-Old Son, and They Look Like Twins

It's literally his mini-me! 

Bensler Has an Honest Conversation About Donnelly | NBC’s Law & Order: Organized Crime

It looks like Chris Meloni has a doppelgänger. On January 2, 2023, the Law & Order: Organized Crime star posted an adorable Instagram post of himself and his son, Dante, celebrating Dante’s 19th birthday. And the resemblance between the two is uncanny!

In the first snapshot, Meloni posted a close-up selfie of the two looking directly into the camera with mini cone birthday hats on their heads, with Meloni’s arm around his son. In the second photo, we catch a glimpse of Dante winking at the camera while in front of a cake. Like father, like son! “Celebrating the flu with the 19 yo,” Meloni captioned the post while tagging his family. Happy birthday, Dante!

“I think my kids would call me a little crazy. I’m very physical, very affectionate. I’m also very disciplined and focused on education. That’s one thing that was instilled in me, one place in life where there’s no compromise,” Meloni opened up in a 2014 interview with USA Today. “What works for me is empowering my kids. I remember not having any power when I was growing up. Power helps kids mature, and it requires critical thinking on their part. They feel engaged in a decision, which makes them feel engaged in the family process.”

Watch Law & Order: Organized Crime on NBC Thursdays at 10/9c and next day on Peacock.
