Throughout their long-standing marriage, Meryl Streep and Don Gummer have appeared together at various events, yet they’ve skillfully shielded their private lives from the media’s scrutiny.
Meryl Streep and her husband, Don Gummer, have embarked on separate paths in recent years. This revelation came to light through an official statement made by Streep’s representative to People magazine last Saturday.
The statement conveyed, “Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have chosen to live apart for over six years, while maintaining a deep and enduring care for one another.”
The celebrated three-time Oscar-winning actress and her husband, Don Gummer, a renowned sculptor, first exchanged vows in 1978. Just last month, they celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary, a remarkable milestone.
Throughout their long-standing marriage, Streep and Gummer have appeared together at various events, yet they’ve skillfully shielded their private lives from the media’s scrutiny.
Streep once shared her perspective on the intricate balance between work and family, saying, “There’s no road map on how to raise a family: It’s always an enormous negotiation. But I have a holistic need to work and to have huge ties of love in my life. I can’t imagine eschewing one for the other.”
In a touching moment, Streep expressed her gratitude to Gummer during her acceptance speech for the Best Actress Oscar in 2012, awarded for her role in “The Iron Lady.” She stated, “First, I’m going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music, and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives, you’ve given me.”
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer are parents to four now-adult children, including a son named Henry and three daughters named Mamie, Grace, and Louisa. Their enduring bond and family ties continue to be central to their lives despite their decision to live separately.
