Lauren Graham has been keeping a secret on the Parenthood set — she’s dating her on-screen brother, Peter Krause, off-screen!
The 42-year-old Parenthood star is in love and not afraid to let everyone know it in the October issue of Redbook.
Lauren says the transition from co-stars to lovers was easy!
“One of the things that’s been so fun is that it’s so easy,” she explains. “It’s a lot, to work with somebody and spend time with them, too.”
Lauren and Peter actually met each other 15 years ago, but the spark wasn’t there yet.
“I think we liked each other [but] he asked me over to his house to play a board game — and that’s exactly what we ended up doing. So I was like, ‘This guy doesn’t like me. Who actually plays a board game?’… The timing wasn’t right,” the Gilmore Girls actress says. “I don’t think either of us was ready.”
The co-star couple didn’t open up about their relationship at first because they didn’t want to ruin the show.
“Nobody knew about it for awhile, because we like to be at home, cooking and not going out,” Lauren shares. “I’ve also been really protective of it, because it’s important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show.”
