Meryl Streep SPLITS From Don Gummer After 45 Years of Marriage
In a shocking revelation, Meryl Streep, the iconic three-time Oscar winner, and her husband, Don Gummer, have parted ways. The couple, known for their low-profile and lasting relationship, quietly ended the romantic aspect of their marriage over six years ago.
Their love story began in 1978.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer’s love story began when they were introduced by Streep’s brother. At the time, Meryl was grieving the loss of her boyfriend, fellow actor John Cazale, who succumbed to lung cancer. Their connection was instant, leading to their marriage just six months later at her parents’ home.
Meryl Streep shared a glimpse into their relationship in a 2002 interview. She highlighted the key to their lasting bond as “goodwill and willingness to bend — and to shut up every once in a while.”
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer are parents to four children: a son named Henry and daughters Mamie, Grace, and Louisa.
A quiet separation after 45 years.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer’s separation came as a surprise to many, as the couple had successfully maintained a low-key personal life. Their representative confirmed the separation, emphasizing that they have been living separate lives for over six years, “Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been separated for more than 6 years, and while they will always care for each other, they have chosen lives apart.”
The public eye last saw them together at the 2018 Oscars, and Meryl Streep was spotted wearing her wedding band recently at the 2023 Princesa de Asturias Awards in Spain. On September 30, they celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary.
