The 'Parenthood' Cast's Real-Life Family Ties!

Sarah Braverman

The second-oldest Braverman sibling is an anxious single mom of two polar-opposite teens, one headstrong and one withdrawn, and when we first met Sarah, she and the kids were moving home with her parents to save money and start their lives anew. Of course, Lauren Graham is best known for playing single mom Lorelai Gilmore on The WB's beloved series Gilmore Girls. A Honolulu native, Graham was raised by her father after her parents divorced when she was 5, and she reportedly spent much of her childhood traveling with her dad -- a lobbyist for the candy industry (sweet!). She's currently dating her Parenthood costar, Peter Krause.
