Heavy reports that Jason Gould Eliott is the son of Barbra Streisand and actor Eliott Gould. His parents became married in 1969 and separated in 1971.

Jason was born into fame and wealth, and he grew up surrounded by paparazzi. With both parents in the entertainment world, Gould's career followed the same path as he delved into music.

Speaking with SF GATE, the actor and singer made it known that he does not fancy the spotlight as he endeavors to stay off it.

He said:

"Being around my mother, I have a lot of experience with paparazzi. I don't like cameras snapping in my face. It's like being attacked. That's one reason I kind of laid low, because I don't like that kind of attention. I really don't. I don't like fame and what goes with that. I grew up in it."

In an interview with Billboard, Gould opened up about his career and how he is able to handle pressure due to his parents' fame.

The star told the publication about his music project, "Dangerous Ma," while revealing that he sometimes felt pressure when it comes to doing an excellent job in his chosen field.

He said:

"The pressure of being compared, or judged is something I recognize I have no control over. And ultimately, I have to be authentic, so no matter who my mother is, it doesn't really matter in the end. We are all products of our parents, though."

Good HouseKeeping reports that although Barbra Streisand did not have a happy ending with her son's father, the TV producer found love with fellow star, James Brolin.

Brolin has also been in two other marriages, but with Barbra, he built a strong bond as they became a power couple.
