The pair had an October 2009 proposal with a custom-made engagement ring. In July 2011, they married at Streep’s Connecticut home and lived in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

They divorced in March 2013 with Gummer’s representative saying, “It’s very amicable.” Gummer has appeared in “True Detective,” “The Good Wife,” and in “Ricki and the Flash” she starred with her mother as her onscreen daughter.

Streep’s youngest child and daughter, Louisa, works as a model. In 2011, Streep opened up to “The Talks” about her two daughter’s following in her footsteps.

She revealed:

"I am proud that my daughters want to do this. But I am also frightened for them, too. Because when criticism comes your way as an actor they are not criticizing your writing or your painting or your piece, they are criticizing you! It is hard to put that away in a place where you are not hurt by it and that is my fear for them. But I would never say don't do it, because I think it is a glorious profession and I am so thankful for everything it has let me express."
