Mariska Hargitay Has No Qualms About Husband Peter Hermann's 'Younger' Love Scenes (Exclusive)

By

Mariska Hargitay and husband Peter Hermann are feeling "incredibly blessed."

While Hargitay continues to crush it on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Hermann is making waves as Charles Brooks, the love interest of Sutton Foster's character, Liza Miller, on TV Land's Younger.

Amid all this, the power couple still found time to sit down with ET and promote Hermann's new children's book, If the S in Moose Comes Loose.

"It's very exciting to watch all of this," Hargitay gushed. "We're just all in, we're all in."

While the 54-year-old actress is clearly proud of her husband the author, she's also a huge fan of her husband the TV heartthrob. In fact, Hargitay is thrilled that he gets to work alongside Foster in Younger, even if their scenes are sometimes romantic. 

"I've had the pleasure and honor of working with the amazing Sutton Foster, who is ridiculously, absurdly talented and she was on SVU," she said in praise of Hermann's co-star. "To get to know her is to love her and I'm just happy he got the good one, the best one. She's awesome and the cast is awesome."

Continuing to express her gratitude, Hargitay added, "I can't believe that this is the life that we get to lead."

Hermann, who has also starred on SVU, chimed in, "Just the fact that [we have] two shows shooting in New York. How often does that happen?"

"Yeah, that's a little lightning in a bottle," Hargitay noted. "To have these amazing shows [SVU and Younger] with these amazing writers, and the fact that we get to balance SVU, [which] is heavy and dark, [with] this other world to jump to for fun -- I read Peter's scripts and I go, 'Oh my god, it's so funny.'"

In addition to their TV success, the 50-year-old actor's book is also being met with good reviews. "Anytime you're able to do something and have people respond positively, to write something and to make a book ...it's such a privilege," Hermann said.

If the S in Moose Comes Loose is available wherever books are sold, while SVU airs Wednesday nights on NBC and Younger is on TV Land.
