Law and Order: SVU star Chris Meloni talks about his co-star Mariska Hargitay’s adoption and her emotions leading up to her little girl coming home.

Seems Chris Meloni knew about Mariska’s adoption and did a great job of keeping it secret!

Meloni tells that he knew because of their close working relationship: “Uh, yeah [I knew she was adopting!] I’m her partner. You didn’t know; I knew. I had to keep my mouth shut.”

Meloni also explains that Hargitay was “a little stressy stressy” about the adoption, but notes that she’s “going to be great. She’s a woman that possesses a lot of love. She’s extraordinarily intelligent. I think she understands human behavior. She has endless patience.”
