Mariska Hargitay and Peter Hermann

Hermann played a defense attorney named Trevor Langan, and the two met on the set in 2002. Their first date was to attend church together after Hermann asked Hargitay out. Hargitay spoke with People in 2019 about their first date. She realized during the service that Hermann was “the one.”
“We went to church together, and it was like getting hit with a lightning bolt,” Hargitay revealed. “I just started sobbing. Peter thought I was crying because I was so moved by the service. No, it was because I was just overwhelmed, realizing he was the one.”
The couple were married in 2004, and they have three children together: August, Amaya, and Andrew.
