Cole Hauser became a fan favorite for his role in Paramount Network's award-winning drama series, "Yellowstone," but his personal life is worthy of a movie script.

"Sweet Valley High" twins Brittany and Cynthia Daniel were one of the biggest teen stars in the 90s. Both became popular for their roles in the popular series based on Francine Pascal's novel series.

The twins were 18 when they began playing Liz and Jessica Wakefield, and fans of the famous show can recall the adventures of the blonde beauties as they fell in and out of love with each other's boyfriends.

Brittany and Cynthia built a massive fanbase during the years when the show aired, but after it was cut off due to low ratings, the famous twins disappeared from the big screen. Cynthia later returned as a photographer while Brittany pursued other acting interests.

Brittany faced a tough battle in 2014 when she was diagnosed with stage IV non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Brittany confessed that her illness happened quickly and changed her outlook on life. She is now cancer-free and credits her family with helping her through it.

She told People, "There is no way I would have ever gotten through this without my family. My family is everything to me, and I feel like they saw me through this."

Brittany and her famous twin sister continue to share a strong bond more than two decades after they graced the screen. The sisters created a joint Instagram account where they detail their fun adventures together.

Brittany was thrilled when her sister, Cynthia, fell in love and married "Yellowstone" actor Cole Hauser. The families remain united and have been through thick and thin together. 

CYNTHIA'S BIG GIFT TO BRITTANY

Brittany and Cynthia's love for each other knows no bounds, and even when the former's battle with cancer affected her ability to conceive, she could count on her twin sister to donate her egg.

As a result, Brittany and her husband, Adam Touni, welcomed their daughter Hope last October. Cynthia said she saw it as a simple gift to her sister and believed Brittany would do the same if places were switched.

The "The Basketball Diary" actress spoke to her husband, Hauser, and they agreed to help. Getting an egg from her sister was Brittany's only shot at becoming a mom.

Shortly after her recovery from cancer, the blonde beauty opted to find a party and start a family. Still, a visit to the doctor informed her that excessive chemo had damaged her egg reserves, making it difficult to conceive without help.

After getting Cynthia's eggs, Brittany suffered three failed in vitro fertilization (IVF). Brittany finally found success after attempting surrogacy with Cynthia's eggs.

CYNTHIA AND HAUSER'S MARRIAGE

The "Yellowstone" actor has been married to the "Sweet Valley High" actress since 2006, and the couple has a happy home. Despite their popularity as successful actors, the lovebirds prioritize their family.

Hauser is without question one of the breakout stars of the 90s, appearing in top films such as "Dazed & Confused," "School Ties," and "Good Will Hunting." He also racked up roles in other blockbuster movies like "Olympus Has Fallen" and "2 Fast, 2 Furious."

But playing Rip Wheeler in "Yellowstone" is arguably his biggest role in modern times. Hauser appears as a ranch hand alongside the show's hitman, family patriarch, and ranch owner, John Dutton, played by Kevin Costner.

His romantic relationship with Beth, played by actress Kelly Reilly, gives fans an insight into how much of a passionate lover he is. Hauser's love for his wife, Cynthia, has been nothing short of incredible.

Not much is known about how the couple met or their dating years. The lovebirds also do not talk about their private lives, but they are active on Instagram, sharing lovely throwback pictures and celebrating their little ones.

Cynthia and Hauser welcomed their first child, Ryland, in 2004, two years before tying the knot. Their second child, Colt, was born in 2008, while their youngest child, Steely Rose, arrived in 2013.

While the couple prefers to stay lowkey, they are vocal about the importance of family. Hauser confessed that his busy schedule never keeps him away from his wife and children during a chat with The Havok Journal. 

Hauser once noted that he had to work toward finding the balance between work and successful family life.

Cynthia, like Hauser, is a devoted mom and wife. She also loves to inspire other moms to live their best lives while prioritizing their families. The mom of three is also a health and lifestyle enthusiast and frequently shares stunning pics on her Instagram.

COLE HAUSER IS A DOTING DAD

Hauser comes from a long line of Hollywood icons. He is the son of Wings and Cass Warner, whose grandfather was Harry Warner, one of the founders of Warner Bros.

Hauser did not have the best of childhoods. His parents divorced in 1977, and he was 15-years-old when he got to know his father. However, Hauser's poor relationship with his dad motivated him to become a better father.

Hauser spent most of his boyhood days on an Oregon ranch on horseback and developed his fascination for outdoor pursuits. The Hollywood star instills these values in his children by taking them camping, hunting, and fishing.

Ryland, Hauser's eldest child, loves a life of adventure and enjoys hiking, dirt biking, target shooting, and traveling. The 17-year-old also plays football, and he and his friends recently established the "Students of the Year Campaign" for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Hauser's second child, Colt, 13, isn't as outgoing as his older brother. The young teen has only made a few appearances on his parents' Instagram pages. 

Hauser and Cynthia seem to prefer shielding their younger children from the public. Their daughter, Steely Rose, 9, has made a handful of appearances on her parents' social media, but not much is known about her.

Despite keeping things private, fans do not doubt that Cynthia has a happy home. She recently shared a sweet throwback picture, wishing her husband a happy birthday. The former "Sweet Valley High" actress and her man are still as much in love as they were over a decade ago.
