Meryl Streep Became A First Time Grandma at 69

Meryl Streep Became A First Time Grandma at 69

Maree / Jul 22, 2021

We all know Meryl Streep as a wonderfully talented actress but she has always been so very protective of her family’s privacy. We can share however that Meryl became a first time grandmother in 2019 at the age of 69 – and she is certainly one very proud Nanna!

When Meryl’s daughter, Mamie Gummer, welcomed a baby boy into the world with her fiancé Mehar Sethi, Meryl couldn’t hold her excitement back as the birth approached:

“I’ve been working like mad for quite a while, so I’m getting ready for my first grandchild.

“My daughter’s having a baby in February, so I’m going to go out and ruin her life. I specialise in unsolicited advice.”

Meryl’s daughter shared the screen with her mum in Ricki and the Flash and is the oldest daughter of Meryl  and her husband sculptor Don Gummer. They also have three other children, Henry, 39, Grace, 32 and Louisa, 27.

Although this is the first time that Meryl was to be a grandmother in real life, she’s had a bit of practice in her onscreen role in the second season of Big Little Lies. Streep is set to star as Mary Louise Wright, grandmother to Celeste’s (Nicole Kidman) sons in the second season.

We’re sure Meryl is looking forward to many grandchildren ahead!

Painting can also help the grandies learn about shapes, numbers and patterns. Some kids take to painting very quickly. […]
