Christopher Meloni knew his wife, Sherman Meloni, was special the first time he laid eyes on her.

The pair first crossed paths in 1989, when Christopher starred in an HBO series that Sherman did production design for. Although the Washington D.C. native immediately found his future wife “cool, funny [and] sexy,” she had a boyfriend at the time. The pair didn’t date for another two years.

Sherman recalled how the Wet Hot American Summer actor impressed her on their first date.

“We went to three parties, given by three sets of my friends," she told Your Tango. “The first was in West Hollywood. Every guy there was gay; Chris passed with flying colors. Next, we went to a party given by Beverly Hills snootballs; Chris kept his manners in check and held his own. Then we went to a costume designer's party in the Hills, where we drank beers from a tub on the porch. And I thought, ‘I can take him anywhere.’”

The duo tied the knot in July 1995 and later welcomed daughter Sophia in March 2001 and son Dante in January 2004.
