Meryl Streep has been living separately from her non-showbiz husband Don Gummer for more than six years now.

According to sources gathered by Page Six, the 74-year-old veteran actress had secretly split from the 76-year-old sculptor after 45 years of being together.

"Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been separated for more than six years, and while they will always care for each other, they have chosen lives apart," a spokesperson for Meryl told the entertainment outlet.

The pair were last seen together when they attended the 90th Academy Awards ceremony in 2018, during which they appeared to still be acting like husband and wife when Don was captured stepping back to snap some photos of Streep posing in front of the paparazzi.

Page Six also noted that the Oscar-winning icon was still parading her wedding ring when she attended the Princesa de Asturias Awards 2023.

Meryl tied the knot with Don in the garden of her parents' home in 1978. They became close to each other when the actress was mourning the death of her late boyfriend John Cazale, who succumbed to lung cancer.

Their love for each other eventually bloomed them four children: singer-songwriter Henry Wolfe, 43, and actresses Mamie Gummer, 40, Grace Gummer, 37, and Louisa Jacobson, 30.

Their family grew even bigger throughout the years as they were blessed with five grandchildren: two from Henry and another two from Mamie. Grace recently gave birth to her first child with her husband, record producer Mark Ronson.

Meryl gained prominence for her versatility in acting, receiving numerous accolades throughout her career. Some of her popular film credits include The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia, and Into the Woods.
