What You Never Knew About Mariska Hargitay’s Marriage


Mariska Hargitay is one of the most recognizable
faces in television, having starred as Olivia Benson on NBC’s hit series Law & Order: SVU
for nearly two decades. But did you know she’s married to Younger
star Peter Hermann? After more than 15 years together, here’s
what you don’t know about this adorable Tinsel Town couple! Meet cute The pair met on Law & Order: SVU in November
2001 when Hermann debuted his recurring character, defense attorney Trevor Langan. Hargitay, who has starred on the series since
1999, attempted to break the ice with a joke, but told InStyle, “He didn’t think I was funny.” The two eventually found common ground in
their shared faith. Following a deep discussion about religion,
Hermann suggested they attend a service at his church together. As Hargitay told InStyle, “I just about passed out when I saw him there. I thought, ‘That’s my husband.'” The SVU star told Good Housekeeping, that
their strong Christian faith “Completely set the tone for our relationship
and our marriage.” Wedded bliss The pair married three years later on August
28, 2004 in Santa Barbara, California, in front of 200 guests, at the Unitarian Historical
Chapel. The groom, then 37, told InStyle, “I recited my vows so loudly you could have
heard them in Oregon.” Hargitay told Good Housekeeping in 2010, “I had been engaged before, but what I felt
for Peter I had never felt before — it was knowing that someone else put you first and
that you put him first.” “A lot of people have doubts on their wedding
day, but I was never so sure and happy.” Growing a family Hargitay and Hermann always wanted to have
kids, and got their wish when they welcomed their son, August, on June 28, 2006. Hargitay told Self, “Nobody wanted to be pregnant more than me.” “From the minute I found out, I was wearing
full-on maternity pants. My stomach was totally flat, mind you, but
I was just so excited.” She told TV Guide, “When I first heard August’s cry, that’s when
I lost it.” “You have so much love that you didn’t even
know about.” But Hargitay was 42 at the time, and it was
a difficult pregnancy. When the couple decided to further expand
their family, Hargitay had trouble getting pregnant, so they turned to adoption. She told Good Housekeeping, “There were wrenching moments. I say to everybody, ‘Adoption is not for the
faint of heart.” The couple finally adopted two children six
months apart in 2011, following several heartbreaking attempts that had fallen through. In April 2011, they welcomed newborn daughter
Amaya Josephine, whom Hargitay helped deliver. They then welcomed three-month-old son Andrew
that October. Multilingual family Hargitay and Hermann both speak several languages
— something they hope to pass on to their children. Hermann explained his linguistic heritage,
telling Broadway.com, “I was born in New York, but I was only here
for two months. My parents are German, and I grew up in Germany
for my first 10 years… I still speak to my parents only in German.” Hargitay doesn’t speak German, but is fluent
in Hungarian, Italian, and French. Location, location, location According to Variety, Hargitay and Hermann
moved their family to a newly renovated $10.7 million townhouse on the Upper West Side of
Manhattan in 2012. As the New York Post reported, their Big Apple
dream home has six bedrooms and nine baths, as well as has “an elevator, an eat-in chef’s
kitchen and double-height ceilings.” It also includes “a sunroom with two terraces,
plus a large garden with a built-in barbecue grill.” #RelationshipGoals After more than a decade together, Hargitay
and Hermann are going so strong, they may only rival the likes of Hollywood It Couples
like Neil and David, or Ellen and Portia. When a Mariska fan account posted a pic of
the lip-locked couple on International Kissing Day, Hermann quote-tweeted the post, writing,
“I thought that was every day…” Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

  1. I love all the real life work she does for women whoโ€™ve been abused or have been in terrible circumstances! Sheโ€™s a beautiful woman and an amazing person! And wow ~ her husband is a hottie!!

  2. She is my favorite star from Law and Order SVU besides Christopher Meroni (who I am so excited is finally back with his own TV show โ€œhappyโ€). I am so glad she has stayed on the show and hope she continues to for the foreseeable future. I had no idea she was married to her fellow cast member and the guy who plays the boss on the show Younger. He is a hottie and she is a lucky lady!

  3. It's funny watching every episode of law and order: svu I never knew how to say her name until now, lol. One of my favorite shows on tv (easily top 5), though Mariska character's Olivia is my second favorite character. my number one goes to ADA Casey.

  12. She is a great person, so is her hubby. God bless their family. I just was little shack when the woman talking compared her family with Helene & Marsha………..hmmmm

  13. Didn't see the need to mention the age difference, more than once. Sounds like they shere saying she was too old at 42..

  14. Awwwwww I just love her go head Benson๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  15. Pretty like her mother. She is a great actress and great heart. I admire her for all she went through in life and especially her own accomplishments.

  16. The couple 'comparison'…He will protect the Christian family because they WANT Him to; they've accepted his living gift.
    Big difference.
    The other four individuals need to ask for His Indwelling; then they'll see their lives transform.
