Christopher Meloni is embracing his newfound status as a “zaddy.”
The “Law & Order: SVU” star admitted in a new interview that he never expected to become a hottie with a body at age 61 but is happy to take on his “second act.”
“It’s a gas. It’s fun. I don’t know, has anyone else been crowned zaddy? Once it’s bestowed upon you, you have to just ride that horse as long as you can,” he joked to People magazine.
Meloni first made headlines for his physique when he and his chiseled bottom appeared (clothed) on TV screens again thanks to his return to the “Law & Order” universe with his own spinoff, “Organized Crime,” which premiered last year.
He went even more viral when he appeared fully nude in a commercial for Peloton in July.
“It’s great. Are you kidding me?” he said of his career resurgence. “I’m 61 years old and a zaddy. The lucky streak continues.”
The “Law & Order: SVU” star was happy to show off his physique in a Peloton ad.
While the “Runaway Bride” actor has the support of his wife of 27 years, artist Doris Sherman Williams, he admitted his 21-year-old daughter,Sophia, and 18-year-old son,Dante, still give him a hard time about his newfound title.20

“My wife, she’s lovely, she gets it. Meaning she’s like, ‘Eh, whatever.’ My kids, on the other hand, invariably once a month, it’s ‘Really? Really?’” he shared. “Their friends will send them a meme that’s come out or whatever.”
“But I think secretly in their hearts, they get it,” Meloni added. “It’s cool, because we all have a good goof with it. My children’s friends bust my chops, but it’s all fun. It’s an honor.”
