 Celebrity Families Connected By Romantic Relationships

Usually, when famous celebrity kids get together, it makes the news. In the case of Grace Gummer’s marriage to Tay Strathairn, though, the world didn’t learn that the wedding had even happened until the two filed for divorce. Although she is the daughter of artist Don Gummer and Meryl Streep, possibly the most well-known actor in the world, Grace stepped out from her mother’s shadow and built a career all her own. She works in both television and film, having starred on shows including “The Newsroom” and “Frances Ha.”

When she was younger, Grace tagged along with Meryl to the set of 1994 adventure movie “The River Wild.” That’s where she first met Tay, the son of her mother’s co-star David Strathairn, an Oscar nominee himself. US Weekly says Grace told friends, “They say we met then, but no one remembers!” They didn’t see each other again for years.

Meanwhile, Tay made a name for himself as a musician, playing with folk-rock band Dawes for years. Tay and Grace reconnected, dating for several years before they were married in secret. No announcement was made to the press at the time. However, the marriage was not long for this world; just 42 days after they wed, US Weekly reported that the duo filed for divorce, revealing their partnership to the public at the same time as they severed the connection between their famous families.
