So much talent in one fun picture!

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Thursday, October 3 at 9/8c on NBC.

On May 11, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay took to her official Instagram page to share an awesome selfie with her husband, Peter Hermann, having a blast in the Big Apple. Better yet, alongside the couple was the ultra-talented actor Neil Patrick Harris!

The snapshot showed the three actors posing inside Milk Bar, a famous bakery in New York City. There, Hargitay wore a matching pink bandana and some vintage-inspired glasses while she held the camera and grinned. Meanwhile, her husband and Harris made some joking pouty faces to the camera. 

"What’s a girl to do when these pesky boys keep leaning into her perfectly good selfie? Love you @nph Oh and you too Peter ♥️😘 #PrettyInPink," Hargitay captioned the playful post. 

Hargitay and Hermann love to show fans special glimpses of their married life on social media. This Valentine's Day, Hargitay shared a sweet selfie of her and Hermann cuddling on a boat. A few months later, the two took a romantic trip to California together and looked as in love as ever. 

"A quick trip to LA, a little sunshine, a lotta love…. #home #lawoman #californialove #californiadreaming #californiagirl #LA," Hargitay captioned the slideshow of photos. 

Hargitay and Hermann tied the knot in 2004 after they met on the set of Law & Order two years earlier. In a 2018 interview with People, Hargitay opened up about what her husband means to her. 

“My husband is my North Star, and my kids are my teachers. Our family is so perfect, or at least perfect for me. Together we’re just this whole, happy, joyful, chaotic, crazy unit," she said. "I’ve never known anything that was more right. Peter and I, we're so different that it's been amazing how we complement each other. He knows everything I don't."

In another interview with People a year later, Hargitay said, "We sort of knew that we found the right one. I never thought it could be this good, and I never knew that I’d be reminded on the journey, that I’d marry the right one. That I waited and married the right one, and it’s better than I thought it was. Because sometimes you take a snapshot and you go, ‘I can’t believe this is my life.’"
