Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer might be engaged to music man Mark Ronson. This means Meryl could be Mark’s new Mamma-Mia-in-law! These two have been dating since last year, and this past weekend they were papped sucking face and flashing rock (big diamond ring on Grace’s left hand) in London. They also had lunch with Mark’s mum, Ann Dexter-Jones. And, no, Ann’s never won an Oscar, but she is a British socialite/Reiki guru/writer who was the inspiration behind the Foreigner song I Want To Know What Love Is. So there are zero guarantees that Meryl will be the cool grandma if Grace and Mark have kids.
Here’s 35-year-old Grace and 45-year-old non-sapiosexual Mark PDA-ing their way around London-town:

The Sun says Mark has met Meryl and her sculptor husband Don Gummer (via Page Six):
“They seemed to like him, which is a good sign. It would be daunting for any guy to try to charm Meryl Streep,” a source told The Sun.
Grace is the Streep daughter who was in Mr. Robot, not the one who was in Ricki and the Flash and Emily Owens, M.D. (that’s Mamie Gummer). She’s been married before, to Tay Strathairn, a musician who’s also the son of actor David Strathairn. The couple separated in 2019 after 42 days of marriage. Mark was previously married to Joséphine de La Baume, but they split in 2017. In a 2019 interview with The Daily Mail, Mark blamed himself and his career for the end of his marriage. Before that, he was engaged to Rashida Jones, way back in 2003.
Mark and Grace haven’t commented on whether or not they’re engaged, but if they do get married, that’s going to be a very interesting wedding guest list. Meryl will invite bestie Cher and all her very important actor friends, and Mark will invite his sister Sam Ronson (oooo, Sam, please bring ex-girlfriend Lindsay Lohan for a Prairie Home Companion reunion with Meryl) and pop stars buds like Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Adele. Now, if Mark’s a DJ, does that mean he’ll DJ his own wedding? Or will they go the live music route? Either way, I need the night to end with a wasted Meryl scream-singing ABBA songs into the mic.
