Streep and Gummer have four children together. Streep said she encouraged her children to pursue any career they wanted, even if they had a propensity for creativity. She didn’t want to impose upon them.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, all of them ended up artists. Her oldest son, Henry Wolfe (39), is a musician. Her daughters Mamie (35) and Grace (33) are actresses. And her youngest daughter, Louisa (28), is a model.
Streep is also the godmother to Carrie Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd.
