Mariska Hargitay's friendship is unsurpassed. On Monday, January 23, Christopher Meloni, her Law & Order: SVU co-star posted the most hilarious birthday tribute dedicated to her. Christopher, 61, took a video in which only his nose, eyes, and forehead were visible. While whispering, the actor referred to Mariska as "Marsha."
Christopher snubbed Mariska with his eyes on his head as he said, "I do." The video was later halted before Christopher could finish uttering the phrase. "Celebrate it Marsha."
Mariska revealed the nickname Christopher coined for her during the couple's appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers in March 2022. "It's one of the many names," she said. Also, the name "Marshmelon" spawned the duo's name.
Mariska said in a red carpet interview at the 2022 Emmy Awards, where she presented Christopher with the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
Fans have been clamoring for Mariska's Olivia Benson and Christopher's Elliot Stabler to marry. "I think we just want to respect the complexity and the nuance of it," Mariska said of Olivia and Elliot to People in February 2022.
Up until Christopher left the NBC show Law & Order: Organized Crime in 2021, Mariska reunited with Christopher.
